London: Mischa Barton is reportedly planning to put her problematic years in Hollywood behind her by moving back to her native London.
Barton has endured a turbulent time in the spotlight recently, with a career slump and a meltdown last year which saw her hospitalised and placed on involuntary psychiatric hold, reports dailystar.co.uk.
Barton, who was born in Britain and moved to the US at the age of six, is now said to be considering a trans-Atlantic move from California so she can start afresh and spend more time with her Britain-based boyfriend, DJ Ali Love.
The actress is also said to be planning to move her career in a new direction by taking on a role in London`s West End.
"Mischa has found a great new guy. She can`t wait to move to London to be with him. It`s already in the works. Instead of Hollywood gigs, Mischa`s focusing on a stage career in the West End," said a source.
"She wants to spend a year in London and see where things go with both the theatre and Ali. She is so happy to be starting afresh. She is so in love," he added.
