Mischa Barton was reportedly granted two restraining orders against two ex boyfriends after she found out someone was trying to sell videos of her, which were filmed during "her most intimate and private moments".

TMZ has obtained the two restraining orders the actress got on Tuesday after a judge ordered her two exes to stay clear of her, and also prohibited them from selling, distributing, giving away or showing any of the videos or photos.

It comes as Mischa appeared at a press conference where her lawyer Lisa Bloom answered questions about the revenge porn on her behalf.

"I just want to say that I have been put through an incredibly hard and trying time," she said.

"This is a painful situation and my absolute worst fear was realised when I learned that someone I thought I loved and trusted was filming my most intimate and private moments, without my consent, with hidden cameras.

"Then I learned something even worse, that someone is trying to sell these videos and make them public.

"I came forward to fight this not only for myself but for all the women out there. I want to protect them from the pain and humiliation I’ve had to go through.

"No woman should have to go through this. It is a very hard thing to do but I am glad that I’m finally standing up for myself."

She also declined to answer any questions about the identity of the ex-boyfriend, saying: "Because this is an ongoing police investigation, we’re not giving out the names of anybody involved."

Earlier today Mischa vowed to fight the release of allegedly sexually explicit images after claims they had been “shopped around” to the highest bidder.

She hired Hollywood lawyer Lisa Bloom in her bid to ensure any such material - which her attorney dubbed “revenge porn” - is kept out of the public arena.
