23-year-old Barton tells People magazine, “I think I need to back away from the whole TV approach. That whole world of network television, probably isn’t, for me, a good idea now. I need to start reading for more serious roles.”
She hasn’t yet lined up a next project and says her schedule is pretty relaxed at the moment, with the recently hospitalized starlet spending most of her time working out. Her other activities include, “reading scripts and enjoying living in New York.”
We hope this means she’s also squeezing in a nap here and there. Girlfriend could use a break.
