Exclusi_micha_56706358_600 Mischa Barton‘s weight has gone up.

Remember those terrifying dimpled-backside bathing suit pix?

Now it’s going back down.

But does anyone care?

Apparently, she thinks we do. So she took to her blog to address the "crazy press" about her weight — which, frankly, is news to us.

What "crazy press" is she talking about?

"So lately there’s been a lot of crazy press about my weight and just so you guys know I’m happier and healthier than ever so there is no need to worry about me. Things are really well in Mischa world and I’ve just been watching what I eat.

"I still love my pilates and yoga, and have cut back on fatty foods a bit.  My time in India and Paris really just helped me lose a little bit of weight but there’s nothing drastic going on!

"I appreciate the concern, I just wish the press wouldn’t harbor on it as I think it’s very unhealthy for young girls to read about and pay attention to.  To my female fans: Just be happy and secure with yourself and don’t let other people’s perceptions of you dictate the way you live your life."

The most unnerving thing is Barton’s use of the phrase "Mischa world." That’s disturbing that she has a world of her own, isn’t it?

Anyone else get the feeling she’s addressing the "crazy press" because it was more about, um, activities she might be indulging to cause weight loss? Is she possibly on Lindsay Lohan‘s diet plan?

Does she look better now? You decide!
