Mischa Barton Claims Paparazzi Snaps Were Retouched

Mischa Barton is pointing fingers all over the place. She’s been caught in some very unflattering paparazzi photos in the past that seem to really. . . highlight all of her squishy stuff, and that makes her mad. Mad enough, it seems, to talk about it a lot (think Jennifer Love Hewitt proportions) and even have her rep say that the pics were altered to make her look worse.

Barton’s rep Lisa Perkins stated that “Those photos are doctored. I’m not saying she’s perfect, nobody is. But they’ve given a 22-year-old woman the legs and bottom of an 80-year-old.”

Or Mischa has really bad genes. I hate to say it, but there has been more than one set of these photos around: here in 2007, here in blue, or even a little here. She isn’t going to get anywhere with this one, so perhaps she should dedicate her time to gig-getting. Paparazzi aren’t exactly the easy type to crack, and I don’t think that the guilt will be killing them, either.
