    Mischa Barton was released from involuntary confinement at a psychiatric ward five days ago after what multiple reports called a days-long bender, and the troubled star is already back at work, and back out on the town.

    This weekend, Barton was in New York City having ”a disastrous dinner” with friends where she reportedly was involved in some odd dinner conversation. “She was upset and talking frantically into her phone about having a stalker,” the New York Post reports. “Her friends were trying to console her, but she went outside and chain-smoked cigarettes.”

    But the co-star of her new TV show and its producer, Ashton Kutcher, had a very different take on Barton’s mindset back in Los Angeles.

    Radaronline.com talked to Kutcher and Mischa’s friend and “The Beautiful Life” co-star Sarah Paxton at the premiere of Kutcher’s new film “Spread” in L.A. on Monday. Paxton said Mischa was already back at work. “We all had a group hug,” said Paxton, adding “everything’s back to normal.”

    Kutcher echoed Paxton, saying several times that Barton was “awesome.”

    Five days removed from observation in a mental facility, and she’s awesome?
