Actress Mischa Barton was hospitalized on Thursday for a psychiatric evaluation after neighbors called police to report that she was seen hanging over her backyard fence in just a shirt and tie, screaming and exhibiting bizarre and disturbing behavior.

The 31-year-old actor is best known for her role as Marissa Cooper in the hit TV series The O.C.

The Daily Mail reported that she was rambling about the “world shattering,” and Ziggy Stardust - which is one of her dog's names.
