Producer ‘Bummed’ Mischa Barton’s Medical Issues Would Affect Movie Premiere
LOS ANGELES, Calif. —
After police were called to assist Mischa Barton with a medical issue on Wednesday a rep for the star broke the news to Access Hollywood that Mischa would not be attending the premiere of her new film, “Homecoming,” on Thursday in New York. And now the film’s producer says he has several concerns.
“I found out yesterday right around when it happened because we live in a world of technology where things are immediate,” Bingo Gubelmann told Access at the movie’s premiere. “I was bummed out, and we tried to figure out exactly what was wrong first – [Was] she going to be OK?”
Though Gubelmann was concerned for the actress, he admitted he was worried that Barton being a no-show would hurt the movie’s premiere.
“Selfishly I was like, ‘Oh man! It’s never going to happen! No one is going to show up. [People are] going to come to a premiere with no stars,’” he told Access.
Gubelmann said he has not been in contact with the actress since her incident.
“I haven’t been able to [speak with her,] I think she’s under lock and key right now,” he continued.
Despite Mischa’s recent trouble, Gubelmann said he would indeed cast her again in future projects.
“It was amazing,” he said of his time spent working with the actress on the horror movie. “She was so professional. I would definitely work with her again, no matter what. No matter how this goes down.”
On Thursday a rep for Barton told Access, “Ms. Barton was safely transferred to medical treatment for which she remains hospitalized, as per the recommendation of her doctor.”
