Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols: On-Again Couple?

On-again, off-again couple Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols seem to be on-again as they arrive together at LaGuardia Airport in New York City on Sunday (August 17).

Sophia was seen lugging around a black Titan rolling suitcase, a Max Azria shopping bag and a gray quilted Chanel handbag.

The One Tree Hill costars have been busy in North Carolina shooting their upcoming CW series. Sophia, 27, and Austin, 29, reportedly started dating in early 2006.

  • Nan

    I love Sophia and Austin. Also I believe James and Shantel are together. James is sneaky and very private. We never got confirmation about James and Sophia either except for the douche CM.

  • Ellie

    Sophia was so in love with her husband. I wish things could have been different between them. I think it will always hurt them both.

  • daisy

    @54 chad michael murray is not a douche and i wish him and sophia would of stayed married so none of this stupid drama would of ever started

  • NC

    What is all the denial about? James is doing Shantel.

  • Nicole

  • Jenn

  • Celebritywatcher

    Poor girl this is not the man for her!

    Check out my celebrity psychic predictions @

  • Onetwothree

    I’m having doubts about this girl. There are plenty of guys out there that would die to date her. Why does she keep hooking up with co-stars? I was okay with the fact that she was dating James since they have known each other for over six years but now Austin. Is she really as smart as everybody claim she is!

  • WNC

    Shantel was after James big time and she got him. No surprise there. I mean the girl is beautiful and James well he’s James.

  • Crystal

    Ha I know. Shantel wanted James and she got him, big time,. lmao

  • Alex

    Sophia and Austin know each other since a long time ago they knew each other before Sophia even knew who Chad or James were.

  • Monica

    Austin and Sophia went to USC together and have the same manager. They have dated before and know each other for many years. And they are both gorgeous.

  • Heather

    Who knows and who cares? If all of them are dating or none of them are dating?

  • laura

    DUDE GIRL stop talking about shantel and james, this thread has nothing to do with them, if they are screwing each other than good for them….
    I swear sophia keeps going back and forth, first chad screwed her than she started dating austin that didnt work out then came jon foster, that also didnt work out and back she was with austin, again it didnt work lets go to james, that also didnt work out and now she is back with austin, like seriously WHAT THE HELL is wrong with this girl????

  • dee dee

    So Jared, are you making this up, or did Jake and Reese’s pr and management pay you to push the Sophia and Austin are dating story???

    Sophia is not dating Austin. In the last month or so Sophia gave an interview in which she said she and Austin went on “like, three dates” years ago after breaking up with CMM, and decided to just be friends. And back when she supposedly had those dates, Lainey in her gossip column warned Sophia and she was going to get her heart broken because her current boyfriend was “gay as a goose”.

    Unlike a lot of other women in HW, seems that Sophia does not want to date a gay man. Why should she, when she’s gorgeous enough to get a real date, unlike Jared’s favorite, Reese.

  • Lol

    You haters are pathetic. James is on co star #2 and that pisses you off. CM screwed the underage high schooler from the show and anything that moved. Sophia had one husband and three other guys in six years. I ADORE her. Hil screwed Ian and his best friend Eric. Joy was a party girl before becoming born again, screwing, doing drugs but no one likes to talk about them. Please everyone is human. let’s air your lives here. I have nothing against this cast or any celebs dating. I’ve screwed more people in a year. Yea sooooo.

  • Jane

    I mean in Hollywood, it’s an unofficial rule to date co-stars and to break up.
    These actors are working forever long days while their show is filming, they don’t have time to really go out and date, so they date the people that are around them.

    All of these actors and actresses have dated, yeah some of them have broken up, but that happens. As long as it does not interrupt their work, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr
    Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan
    Blake Lively and Penn Badgely
    Jensen Ackles and Danneel Harris (I’m not sure if they started dating pre-Ten Inch Hero or not)
    Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly
    Freddy Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar (co-stars before they got together and after)
    Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody
    Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard (they are in When in Rome together)
    Courtney Cox and David Arquette
    Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
    Milo Ventimiglia and Alexis Bledel
    Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere
    Jared Padlecki and Sandra McCoy
    Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen
    Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness (they were in an Australian tv show together)
    Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer
    Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof (they dated after they were co-stars, but at some point they were co-stars and met on set)

  • Lee

    Austin is not gay.

  • Onetwothree

    @Jane: yes but 3 co-stars on the same show. That is a problem just like dating 3 different co-workers in the same company

  • sam

    austin is definitely not gay… she should have stayed with jon foster…

  • Claire

    There are way more co star relationships then that list. What about Jensen and Danneel. So many i cant even think.

  • Anne

    I have dated more than three guys from my town. It was over the course of a few years and we all are still friends. All of us have married other people and we socialize together. I don’t see the big deal. I think some of you want to bash Sophia that is all. I mean every time I have started a relationship I always thought he was the one for all time. Life doesn’t work that way. Look at Sienna Miller if you want to bash she goes for married men.

  • Heather

    Too funny. Guys get a pass. James is DOING Shantel and she went after him. Shantel was screwing Michael Brittany’s ex and he just dumped her.

  • mythical creature

    They’re young and that is what ya do…no problems…

  • Angie

    #77 One husband you are forgetting. James was three YEARS later. Then shame on James for betraying his friendship with Chad. Now he has moved onto Shantel literally.

  • Randy

    Hilarie was banging Ian’s best friend right after their break up. Nice. He is a school teacher in Wilmy.

  • Jen

    Austin is cute and so is Sophia, she looks great with longer hair as well.

  • Maria

    Hehe now it is getting juicy. Everyone has dirty laundry to air, even posters if you are honest.

  • ali

    all you people are so retarded stay the fck out of sophia’s life and go get one of your own please!!!!!!

    Pictures of Sophia and Austin on the beach February 12, 2006:


    Lainey story less than 2 weeks later:


    *** are for usual, including com, since this didn’t go through the first time.

  • dee dee

    Since Jared won’t allow links, you can find photos of Sophia and Austin on the beach in February 2006 by using Sophia Bush, Austin Nichols gossip rocks and 2006.

    You can find the Lainey gossip about the gay boyfriend from a week later by searching on Lainey’s site and using the words Sophia Bush and glitter.

  • jen

    I asked this on the last post about Sophia but it was really late..
    i was just wondering for anyone who might know..How are things between James and Sophia now? They had such a close relationship and i was actually a big fan of them. It really disappoints me that Sophia has seemed to move on to another costar so fast. That has to make things really awkward on set for James.

    I’m actually not a fan of Sophia and Austin. He seems sleezy to me and I think she could do better. But if she’s happy then good for her.

  • dee dee

    Sorry, didn’t think my first post went through.

  • ncgirl

    James and Sophia get along very well I think that they both realized they were better off as friends and James doesn’t care about Austin and Sophia, he is actually happy for her, and like I said he is seeing a local girl right now so he don’t care about it.

  • Sara

    Sophia and James are still friends. And although they remain friends, they’ve both moved on like people do when they break up. But like you said, as long as Sophia is happy, thats all that matters.

  • alison

    chad and james hott and both good for sophia austin not so much

  • brulian fan

    I love Sophia and Austin both, but I don’t think they’re dating. Unless you have something to back it up NC girl, I don’t see why any of us should believe you.

  • april

    i love sophia!!!!!!!!!!!!more posts jj

  • NY

    There are pictures of Austin filming OTH today. Just another “fact” that Jared got wrong. These pictures were clearly taken when they arrived late last week for a photo shoot.

  • Angela

    I REALLY love how Jana is also in a couple of the arrive at the airport pictures and NO ONE has mentioned her………. regardless if she’s well known or not she is still part of the cast. Think about that too guys and get on the ball.

  • ncgirl

    Those pics are from ysterday when they were flying back to Wilmington, and I don’t care if you don’t believe me, I told you what I know and if you don’t believe it that’s fine,I will not fight with you to make you believe me.

  • Jayla

    Jared is the KING of getting his facts wrong.
    He says that Sophia and Austin arrived in New York yesterday when thats clearly a lie because they arrived a few days ago.
    They were filming today so why would the three castmembers arrive in New York yesterday and then be in Wilmy today filming??
    Jared-For future reference—Make sure that what you post is ACCURATE because you’ve been getting a lot of things wrong lately with many of your posts.

  • sam

    sophia is beautiful:)

  • Nancy

    She’s such an attention whore.

  • sammy

    @102 go fck yourself you must be on crack if you think sophia bush is an attention whore cause shes just at an airport

  • Tina

  • haley
