Rachel Bilson Supports The Art of Elyisum

Rachel Bilson Supports The Art of Elyisum

Rachel Bilson (in in Dior by John Galliano) couldn’t look more fabu than at the “Heaven: Celebrating 10 Years” event benefiting the charity The Art of Elysium held at Vibiana on Saturday in Los Angeles.

The Art of Elysium is dedicated to enriching the lives of artists and critically ill children. The organization pairs up hospitalized kids with artists, actors and musicians for creative escape.


In a recent interview with Playboy, Bilson opened up about her former O.C. costar and ex-boyfriend of four years Adam Brody. When asked if she’d think twice about whether to get romantically involved with a costar, Rachel said, “You can’t help whom you fall for. I believed I would never date an actor or anyone else in the business. But you find you relate to people in the business because you’re around them all the time, dealing with the same schedules, traveling all over the place. I haven’t seen Adam in a while. We were together every day for four years. It’s hard. That person is your best friend, but when the relationship ends, you can’t be friends with him. It wouldn’t be the healthiest situation.”

Rachel Bilson on the car accident she got into as a teenager: “I had some friends my parents didn’t necessarily want me to hang around with. Everyone goes through that phase. It was a very mild thing for me. I was involved in a car accident with these people when I was 14. They were just goofing around in the car, a guy grabbed the steering wheel, and we went onto oncoming traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway. I was the luckiest one in the group. I had a concussion and I blacked out, so I don’t remember any of it. My parents, on the other hand, do. I don’t have much of a memory now, though, and I think it’s because of the accident. Friends will say, ‘Remember when we were at this or that place?’ and I’ll have no recollection… I went to fewer than a handful of therapy sessions as a child, and the one thing I got out of it was that I should play with something like a Koosh ball under my school desk to help me concentrate. The activity helps me focus. If I’m having a chat with somebody by text message or IM, I get the conversation more than if I’m talking to them on the phone. It’s weird, but it works. I don’t have ADD per se, but I definitely have a hard time paying attention for a long period of time.”

Driving into oncoming traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway?? Nicole Richie, much?

Aw, I loved Adam and Rachel together. She looks gorgeous.

# 4

She is very pretty, but i don’t know why, i don’t like her.

# 5

Isn’t this the bítch who said Natalie Portman was worse than Hayden Christensen in those Star Wars movies? Bias much?

# 6

I can’t say that I know her, but the info on her accident and the after effects are interesting. I’ve heard of other people with similar memory problems, and it always amazes me how they can make it with daily activities (where did I park the car, where do I live, etc.).

Aha! It appears out of hiding.
@ Helena,
Yes! This is the same b*tch that said, Natalie Portman was far worse then Hayden plus, all the other SW co-stars. Plus, she thinks she will get to where Natalie is @ now and Scarlett Johannasen. Dream on sister! I guess a b*tch has got to dream big!

That dress is too long- it’s beautiful, but she looks 10 years older.
