Mischa Barton: Now
The actress returned to TV in 2009 as model Sonja Stone in The CW's The Beautiful Life: TBL; the low-rated, critically panned series was canceled after two episodes. Barton guest-starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in 2010 and appeared in the 2012 Lifetime movie Cyberstalker. That same year, she launched the website Mischa's Place, which sells clothing, cosmetics, beauty products and more.
