Rachel Bilson: Reusable Bag Lady

Rachel Bilson: Reusable Bag Lady

Rachel Bilson goes green with some reusable bags while grocery shopping on Monday (January 31) in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old actress recently shared some of her latest fashion must-haves with InStyle.

Rachel dished she’s obsessed with Celine‘s silk and lambskin tote because “the added texture makes it the best basic tote I’ve ever seen.”

Rachel also revealed she loves Anuja Tolia‘s sterling silver and agate ring.

“I’m a huge fan of agate. Turning it into a ring is the ultimate in finger fashion,” she told the mag.

FYI: Rachel is carrying Urban Behavior‘s ‘Paws for a Cause’ tote.

    Hey why wasn’t she at the SAG awards or the Golden Globes?? Oh b/c she couldn’t afford a ticket!

  • lexy hates bilson

    Wait…Natalie’s got a Golden Globe and a SAG award and Rachel’s got reusable bags!!

  • Fandango

    OMG is this truly the best this woman can do is give out lame fashion advice in a supermarket. Honestly she should be lucky she can even afford the things she is commenting on she is advising for the rich and famous b/c most ppl can’t afford a $200 silk scarf or most of the other clothing advice she has in this Instyle magazine. I guess JJ should thank her b/c w/o someone like her he is out of a job.

    I love myself, I love myself.
    I don’t care what you all say
    I just stay looking in the mirror all day.
    Tweak my eyes, pluck my eyebrows, dyed my hair, shows-off all my freebies.
    Tell me how great I am.
    I love so much being in LA along w/ my paps and just walked around my flat azz & sagged tits
    as much as I can.
    I love myself and no one can deny it.
    And I love most is fame (whatever it’s worth)
    As it’s like is a drug to me
    And I want it & I need it… even have to tell dear Daddy to buy it for me.
    Lalalalala… Lalalalala… Lalalalala
    P. S. I am incredibly average looking (that’s why I badly needs to accessorized myself & wore glasses everytime I go out & papped) & dumb & stupid (another reason/s that I can’t get acting job w/o my connections).
    Yours truly.

    There are a coupleof reviews out of her movie. From Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Ent Weekly.
    Not a single positive review in the bunch.

  • Nina

    @ Jean

    Truly this is not surprising in the least she is not any kind of real actress all she has is connections from BFF’s and a few from Dad nothing pans out for her but this magazine which truly I can’t say I see she is really writing the advice is atrocious they might has well have Paris Hilton give advice for all RB is worth.

  • padme

    JJ – why do you bother with posting about this useless, untalented hag??? Who cares what she does!!! She is BORING and PATHETIC!!!

    Hollywood Reporter
    Rachel Bilson’s ‘Waiting for Forever’ Fails With an Implausible, Generic Story
    The Bottom Line
    An ill-conceived romantic drama that’s as sappy, vague and awkward as its title

    All the improbable, oddball and endless love in the world can’t rescue “Waiting for Forever” from a premise that’s irresponsible at worst and an example of profoundly bad timing at best.

    Entertainment Weekly
    Waiting for Forever is an indistinct romantic-dramedy-ish something or other about the rekindled romance of an actress (Rachel Bilson) and her childhood best friend (Tom Sturridge), a hipster naïf who looks like he wore out his DVD player watching Johnny Depp in Benny & Joon. He juggles fruit, talks to his parents’ ghosts, and woos her with backhanded compliments. She finds this irresistible. You probably won’t. Grade: D

    Slant Magazine
    For a film to be loathsome during its opening seconds is a minor feat; to then become increasingly worse over its remainder is a far greater sort of dubious accomplishment. Kudos, then, to Waiting for Forever, an indie so twee, self-satisfied, and across-the-board affected that words feel somewhat insufficient.

  • Brightside

    Ouch….that last review from Slant was cutting! Well! The reviews are pretty much as everyone expected…it’s difficult to make a silken purse out of a sow’s ear and, when it comes to acting, she’s definitely a sow’s ear.

    I am still cracking up over her saying ‘I’m a huge fan of agate. Turning it into a ring is the ultimate in finger fashion’…LOL!
    I wonder where she’s been for most of her life that she’s never seen jewellery made out of agate…

  • jaeger

    Jared, you should get engaged & married her as your the “only” one who cares for her – that is; if you have some very low taste in women LMAO!

  • Lake

    What else in the world would anyone expect? This is Rachel Bilson you’re talking about, this girl (almost 30, hardly a girl) is one of the single worst excuses for an actress in HW. Her performances are always, ALWAYS flat and one dimensional, because one, she has no talent, and two, all she does is play herself every single time, and she herself is one dimensional. She isn’t edgy, she isn’t fashionable or fashion forward, she isn’t creative and has never had an original thought in her life, she isn’t an “icon” or even a fashionista. She follows trends, she doesn’t set them. Most of the advice she “gives” is pretty much common sense for anyone that doesn’t dress in the dark every day. Anyone who goes out and shops themselves, you see how the shops have the outfits and accessories put together, this isn’t brain surgery. And Rachel herself would do well to pay attention to such things because she has far too many misses than hits. In fashion and in her career as an actress.

  • Jax

    Brightside, if you saw her “accessorizing” her engagement ring with other rings, gold bands included, that alone should tell you she doesn’t know sh*t about sh*t, even where jewelry is concerned. She really must be stunted intellectually to not know that you never, ever “accessorize” your engagement or wedding ring. She’s an idiot.

  • Lisa

    That would be a fabulous RuMe Bag – she has good taste! – REUSE!

  • Brightside

    The whole of the review…damn, it’s punishing!


    After the first time Keach lingers on Bilson’s face for an emotional reaction shot and she responds with utter blankness, the film loses any chance at delivering engaging drama

    Says it all really. She is, and always has been, an emotionally and intellectually blank person. A vapid and vacuous HW cipher of a d-lister addicted to fame but without any talent or intelligence to drive her desire to be famous.

    Some people were born to act and some people to work in Starbucks…she should be waiting on tables rather than inflicting Waiting For Forever on the general public.

  • Jax

    Please, I love going to Starbucks, and I don’t want my order f&&&&&d up every time. Maybe she could work at Mickey D’s.

  • Nina


    Thus the reason that HC moved on and away from a woman who uses a ring as if it was that little black dress she can pull out of the closet and just wear it when convent. I just see her as immature and spoiled rotten.

  • Paula

    @Jean left out this part of that Variety article so I’ll help her out and post it.

    Performances are good, given the context: Bilson is solid, and Jenkins flawless as a man who greets his impending demise like a character out of Beckett. Danner gives a delicate rendering, via Miranda’s incessant cheeriness, of an older woman whose familiar world is collapsing.

    Sturridge, for all the script’s problems, has obviously worked at creating something novel out of Will, even if that something is a behatted cherubic psychotic.

    Production values are topnotch, especially the recurrent theme by Nick Urata, which is quite lovely and atmospheric.

  • Brightside

    Solid is not a compliment. Solid is Variety’s way of saying ‘meh’ but without the sting! Remember it’s a pretty vanilla magazine that owes it’s entire existence to celebrity culture so it tends to err on the side of caution.
    Compliments would have been words like mesmerising, or spellbinding, or simply astounding performance by a young actress…so on and so forth.
    Solid is a pretty solid MEH!

  • Brightside

    No actress ever wants to see ‘solid’ in a review of her work. It shows she’s failed to inspire, that she’s a beast of burden rather than a racehorse. Solid is not a good word.

  • chauncey

    You forgot the “1st & most important part” (written in bold letters huh) of that review.
    All the improbable, oddball and endless love in the world CANT rescue “Waiting for Forever” from a premise that’s irresponsible at worst and an example of profoundly bad timing at best: A young man with obvious mental problems is indulged by his friends, ignored by his family, never gets the help he needs and stalks his childhood sweetheart all over the country. As quasi-comedy, “Waiting” does a pretty good impersonation of incipient tragedy — especially in light of the recent events in Arizona, which will likely color film’s reception and poison word of mouth.

  • chauncey

    As Ive been stated before; SHE will become a brain surgeon right before she becomes a HW actress!

  • anne

    That one “solid” comment about Rachel is going to show up on her fan sites, but the overwhelmingly negative reviews (0% so far on Rotten Tomatoes, and 3 of those reviews are from major critics) will be conveniently ignored. They’ll pretend the bad reviews don’t exist and instead they’ll go on and on about how cute she is in her outfits.

    And that her fans are going to complain about how jealouz of Rachel are those people who criticize her on Just Jared.

    Don’t worry Rachel fans. There’s hope. Josh Schwartz is going to try to find a way to sneak her into the cast of the movie he’s directing.

  • lol

    The only way these photos and post could be more staged …..was if she wearing an agate ring while carrying the reuseable grocery bag lol

    Nice timing as always. Pictures of her carrying things the very day she plugs something and it ends up on JJ. Very interesting timing dont you think~ wink wink,cough cough staged cough~

    To be fair this existance is all the girl has and has less of it each passing day.
    She knows it shes just trying to slow the clock of her 15 mins one second at a time.
    She seems to be doing the whole shabby up do hair style these days Im going to guess its because of all the bad comments everywhere about her hair…. What I dont get wouldnt it be easier to just go get her hair done at a salon finally and fix the big issue shes had for over a year now rather than try to hide it.

    Bag lady and reuseable hmmmm,,,, well JJ got it right about Rachel this time didnt he.

  • shadowy

    So pleased that anytime & everytime that this talentless & worthless celebritard constantly & pathetically pushed on to the public’s throats (through media-hyping & hackting)… REPEATEDLY HITS THE WALL!

  • Nina

    Oh don’t forget she has some question and answer on NBC tomorrow wonder why JJ hasn’t commented on that. Some write in questions on anything from her private life to her career..Oh coming from a woman who says she is such the private person, but now is more then willing to comment on the b/f.

  • The Truth

    @Nina:She is not going to be on NBC. Her question are going to be texted on another site. I don’t think she is going to say anything about him anyway. Haven’t been with her in three months. What would she gain by doing this? If you all don’t like her then why comment on her anyway. You all know the movie isn’t going anywhere. And jj mention the same thing about her when he post her.He shouldn’t have posted her.Because she not going to be on tv with a bad movie. They only have people that have big budget movies. Not no one that don’t have nothing going for her at.all.And her and hayden has call it off again.

  • Solid = Rock-like/Slab-like

    Solid in the review doesn’t mean showing effective technique and skill in performance. Solid means rock-like/slab-like, cold, heavy, a drag on the story and the film. This is not praise at all esp from a pub that doesn’t slam anything or any celeb because its an entertainment mag. If you want to see a critical bloodbath switch on Fox news or listen to the vitriol of Glen Beck. Unbelieveable that this stupid ‘fashion’ blurb talking about how green Bilson is while she babbles on about how perfect her extremely expensive killed-baby-sheep tote bag is. Talk about WASTE and cruelty and blind self-obsessed stupidity . And of course she calls the papparazzi not to record her moments on the Golden Globes or SAG award red carpet but grocery shopping with her reusable bags. Never mind that the cost of her outfit would buy a week’s worth of food at an LA food bank. Never mind the money she pays to Jared every month to promote her sorry pale untalented cellulite @ss would vaccinate 10,000 children in the Sudan or give 1000 women in India micro loans to start a business to feed their families. OMG she is the definition of loser and everyone knows it.

  • Paula


    Hmm..and it’s so nice to read rational and unbiased comments here that really mean something. Meh indeed.

  • emily

    As usual Paula, a Rachel fan, would rather shoot the messenger because she can’t handle the truth in the message. Rachel’s movie is getting panned. NBC passed on her TV show. When was the last time she got any sort of praise for her acting? In short, Her career is not doing well. At all
    But Paula chooses to deflect attention away from that reality by ridiculing the people who are critical of her.

  • Clare

    @ the truth

    Whether you like her or not, she is being interviewed on NBC Buzz Entertainment and on Chelsea Lately on Wednesday, and on George Lopez Tonight on Thursday. The move is debuting in limited release on Friday, there are other people in it besides her, and it is being publicized on TV this week. Deal with it.

  • Nina

    @ truth

    I wasn’t claiming I like her but I knew she was taking questions it’s a Q&A texted and emailed in. It also stated she would answer questions on HC why who knows she needs to pump up the volume so ppl will think he still cares about her. I don’t think they are a couple I think it’s a stage show but he still allows it none the less. So my guess is she will still make some slight comment on him just to keep the innuendoes going.


    Big deal if she is on these shows she is pressing out the only thing she knows how to do but her intelligence can’t handle the questions asked unless they are pre-established before she gets on them. She needs time for her agent to answer them for her. There is not much to deal with b/c she is less of an actress and more of a court jester.

  • Paula


    This from someone who visits JJ to…um…ridicule people.
    Actually I’m not a fan. I just don’t like crude people like the ones who enjoy trashing on JJ.

  • fandago

    AskMen survey of 99 celebrity woman RB is # 83 and that is polling men seems she isn’t really appealing to anyone of late.

  • Rachel is a walking Ad

    Rachel does buy nothing. She gets most of her clothes for free. All she has to do is walking down the street wearing designer pieces cos they hope that she will advertise their brand (JJ always mentions the brands that she has on her back).
    It’s like when she drinks coco water and tell us her love for it, it ’s a deal. Maybe she is paid a little bit for it.

    But clothes and shoes, all they need is someone who has nothing else to do but walking around and getting a pictures taken. So when she appears in “instyle” or other mags wearing designer clothes, it’s like free ad fro the designers and Free clothes for the jobless actress.

    Actually she has a job. I would say that’s a job : a walking ad

  • starr
    Waiting for Forever is the name of Rachel Bilson’s new movie, but it also describes her career arc since The O.C. made her a sex symbol for the emo set. Despite major roles in The Last Kiss and Jumper, Bilson has failed to parlay her small screen success into a legitimate movie career and is still waiting for that one role that will catapult her beyond the tabloids and fashion blogs that have come to define her career. Her new film about childhood friends who reunite later in life looks to capitalize on Bilson’s natural likability (the camera really, really loves this girl), while recapturing some of the magic that made Summer Roberts so darn crushable. If not, we’re sure there’s room in former-teen-sex-symbol purgatory alongside Shannen Doherty, who’s currently filming the TV movie Witchslayer.

  • an

    Instead of giving out fashion tips, maybe Rachel needs to ask for and receive career and acting advice from other actresses her age, like Mila Kunis, Amanda Seyfried. Natalie Portman. I’m sure these actresses spend less time fussing over clothes than Rachel and more time focusing on getting into character, memorizing lines..

  • Brightside

    Ah…the typical d-list interview strategy…pimp the so-called relationship, pimp the flop and make with the innuendo while saying nothing of import.
    I swear they script these things beforehand and all the questions are cherry-picked for ease of answering.

  • lol

    Ive never even heard of NBC BUZZ where will the interview even be posted or air? Chelsea Lately, Paris Hilton and everother loser goes on there to promote things and George Lopez the guy that got bumped to a later time slot by Conan Obrien. Basically shes is someone people barely ever heard of or remember anyone thats going to be interviewed by shows alot of people dont watch.Nice that should do het career great lol NOT.
    I mean even Hayden C ,managed to get on Jimmy Kimmel and Regis and Kelly major stops in a publicity tour for a film for that stupid film Takers.

    Rachel couldnt even dream of major network interviews anymore. Sad really. I think ask men are right her future is like Shannen Doherty the only difference is without Shannen’s fame or success before her career flopped and

  • fandago

    Hilarious is that she was like #45 or so last year and now is #83 if she was so cute for the camera then her rating with men would be much higher. Fact is she is really a know body just some parade princess who uses the streets of LA as her catwalk. Shopping is her career and JJ is her pimp.

    This Chelsea Lately is on late night more like 11pm or 1am (EST) and when you have talk shows like Conan and Kimble who wants to watch some off the wall later night chic who isn’t all that popular especially when Bilson is some guest who barely can talk coherently nor makes sense.


    I can see pimping out a relationship when the guy is actually around all the time. They play bi-costal buddies now so what really is there to pimp just the fact she has some faked up friend tell some pap reporter they are back on,,, yeahh oookkk, I again would trust it only if HC was visible not invisible.

  • lexy hates bilson

    Major roles in Jumper?? and The Last Kiss?? Did that even get released in theaters?? LOL!!!
    Poor Chelsea and George Lopez – it’s sad they can’t get any other guests. But I guess all the good guests are on other shows.

  • oh, well

    @ Fandango You might want to rethink what you said about being #83 on the AskMen list meaning she is not appealing to anyone. Halle Berry was #85 and Kristin Stewart was #90 on the same list, and they are very popular. I think it is just a list of 100 appealing women as far as men as concerned.

  • ATLqueen

    HEY!! I love George Lopez! You don’t have to ridicule people with shows because RB’s on them. Both of them are very popular and hot right now so you need to get your ish together girl…

  • @45

    Halle Berry is now at the bottom of the list because she is a very bad relationship risk, having divorced about 3 times and now in an ugly custody battle with her ex-bf over their daughter. Nothing makes a woman less attractive than a bad track record with the opposite sex. Kristen Stewart just married Robert Pattinson and that is an incredibly buzz kill for male fantasy, also she is reputedly a superb*7ch. She definitely looks like one. Also she’s a rotten actress. Anyone who saw the Twilight films knows this and plenty of men have been dragged to see those stupid movies by their SO’s. If I had to watch KS for 6 hours I’d be likely to put her at the bottom of my list too. Bilson is just not all that in any way. Not that pretty. Body nothing special. No boobs. Big @$$. No good films lately. No good films period (Jumper sucked.) Don’t know why she made it to 83. She barely beats Betty White.

  • fandago

    @ oh well

    I don’t have to rethink anything I didn’t do the poll these men who took it did. Yes there are other name actress’ that are on there but for whatever reason they didn’t appeal to men when polled. But I won’t dispute most of those lower on the list like #47 said Halley Berry and KS really don’t have the appeal anymore. Bilson never had appeal it’s only the former OC fans along with a select few Rayden one who might have liked her. Basically she is a knowbody in show business next year she might just be #99
