PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Rachel Bilson

Rachel covers Nylon magazine’s latest issue and told the mag that she wants to start a family someday.

“I’ve always wanted kids – it’s sort of an obsession,” she said. “but I want to do it right, where I don’t have to work. I’ve heard the stores [of people balancing acting and kids], and I know it’s possible. I don’t know if I want that, though. I’m not sure if I want to continue to work when I have kids.”

    Lauren Says:

    I think it would be foolish to just quit working when she has kids. Whose supposed to support her and her kids? I don’t think she makes that much with the Hart of Dixie that she can support her shopping and kids, without relying on a husband. That would be highly foolish. She needs to be independent when she raises kids, not dependent on others. Just my two cents

    Love Rachel Bilson!! Can’t wait for the show to come back on.

    P.S. Jared, your title names are really dumb. You don’t need to always quote what people say in interviews for the title.

    @Lauren: I’m sure she has plenty of money, she was on a huge show for four years. I’m sure a lot of it has been spent, but she seems like somebody who is financially stable. That’s also why she said in the interview she wants to do it right, when she doesn’t have to work. She clearly knows right now is not the time to actually try to a baby.

    I think being home when they are really young is important. But as they get older, you need to get a move on w your own life too. Balance is key.

    Got to love the pretending to hide her face from the photographer shot.
    She needs to step up the acting for it to be more believable. Rachel Bilson is about as believable pretending she doesn’t want the attention or call the paps as Kim Kartrashian’s entire marriage was. LOL

    Will she still have a JOB Says:

    The real question is to know if Hollywood will wait for her after she has kids. She is no Movie material girl, and she’ll get preggo once all her youth will fade away.
    She will not be able to play the cutie midget Summer type too long now.
    All her pics are heavily photoshoped. Her eyes are wrinkled and puffy despite her 10hr sleep! She does not look fresh to me and 30 is not old.
    She is aged in the face. With heavy makeup she would pass for a 50old lady
    Her teeth are crooked but I would say that’s nothing.

    Like she “has” to work. OMG, please. She’s made what, 5 movies now that I’m sure she was paid for, she did the OC for 4 years and got paid for that plus residuals for the rest of her life, she’s doing HOD which she isn’t doing for free, you know Josh cut her a sweet deal. Not to mention all her family money, her trust fund, and all of her product endorsements. Oh, and those stupid ice cream commercials. I doubt she did those for free either. And she gets a lot of her clothes and shoes for free, I understand she’s always going up and down Robinson asking for freebies. This girl does not “have” to work, that’s just verbal diarrhea coming out of her mouth. I agree with #4, PLEASE don’t reproduce. Ugh.

    @Will she still have a JOB: photoshoots and magazines photo shop everybody, here’s a recent public appearance which clearly isn’t photo shopped. If you think this is the look of a 50 year old, I’d like to see how you look.

    Good grief, STFU Rachel. You’d think she’s toiling away for minimum wage somewhere, working two jobs trying to make ends meet. I hate selfish up their own a$$ b&tches like her. She ought to HAVE to try and get by and raise a kid and pay bills and the mortgage/rent and put food on the table like most of the women in this country. Entitled and spoiled. No thank you. SIT. DOWN. Rachel.

    Will she still have a JOB Says:


    This pics as many others is retouched.
    She has plenty of wrinkles around her eyes and they are puffy.
    Lightning, and filters , plus agencies retouch the pics.
    She does not look fresh to me.

    If you think this pic isnt retouched, you should come on in a pro photo studio. You will be really disappointed!

    HA Says:

    Ha, well guess that’s your opinion. I think she looks beautiful in the photo. I guess if calling her ugly or “old looking” makes you feel better than good for you.

    @HA Says:

    Ummm, by saying she has no grip on reality? By her own admission she was raised like a spoiled little princess, “I know it sounds awful, but I always get everything I’ve ever wanted, my parents saw to it.” Yeah, that’s something to look up to, instead of being taught to be humble and thankful. Whatever.

    Good Gried Yourself Says:


    You hate her because she has money. You don’t know her well enough to know if she is selfish or not, but because you perceive her as privileged. And yet who wouldn’t trade incomes with her right now. Hypocrites.

    HA Says:

    @@HA: So it’s her fault her parents gave her everything she wanted? When you’re a little girl who doesn’t want everything? Just because she said she was raised like a princess and was spoiled doesn’t mean she’s a mean, horrible person like you make her out to be. You know and everybody else knows the only reason the people who comment on her posts hate her because of Hayden Christensen. She didn’t have any of this hate back when she was on The O.C. and dating Adam. So what’s different now???

  16. 16
    @HA Says:

    No, her parents’ actions are not her “fault,” the deal breaker for me is her attitude. It’s one thing to be raised a certain way, it’s quite another to brag about it and not see anything wrong with it. She’s 30 freaking years old, she should know better by now. If she had been raised right, instead of bragging that she always gets everything she wants, she should try saying “I was very fortunate growing up, I had a lot of advantages and material things not everyone has….” blah, blah, whatever. But she doesn’t have that filter or compass. Partly because she’s brain damaged and just not smart at all, and partly because she was never taught that in the first place. I’m sorry, but I can neither defend nor admire someone like her. But, I don’t “admire” most celebrities anyway, so no big loss.

    HA Says:

    @@HA: Her attitude? How do you know how her attitude is? Have you ever talked to her before? She comes off sweet and bubbly in interviews. She said the quote about her growing up like a princess years ago, back when she first started on The O.C. when she was 21 not 30. And I remember the interviewer had asked her how her childhood was, at least she was honest and came out and said “I know it sounds awful but I grow up sort of like a princess”. Even if you don’t like her, your “brain damaged” joke is just cruel. She was in a horrible accident were she almost died. Have a little respect, are you that cold and hate her that much that you wish death on her? That’s crossing the line a little bit. Whatever, I’m done talking to you. You’re clearly just a cold, heartless person. And of course I know that for sure because well, I guess I’m just being like you and judging somebody I don’t know.

    @HA Says:

    I never said I wished she were dead, where did you get that from? I said she was brain damaged. She is. She’s said it herself. Maybe if her mother had taken more interest in what she was doing when she was 14 years old instead of spoiling her rotten and giving her everything she wanted, she wouldn’t have gone through that windshield while she was out with a bunch of boys, drinking, having sex and doing drugs, at 14 years old. 14. And she made that princess remark not so very long ago. Again. And those interviews she did just a couple of months ago? She came off as a total b*tch, in every one of them. Your guilt trip attempt on me for this spoiled rotten little bit of waste of space doesn’t work. I don’t wish any ill on her at all, I just don’t like her, and I wish she would go away. Period.

    @@HA: I don’t care if you don’t like her, but your facts are inaccurate and the things you are saying are just rude. Saying she’s “brain damaged” and “dumb”. How sweet. BTW I did some searching, here is the princess quote. This interview was in 2003, so it wasn’t recent.

    @20@22 Says:

    @@HA: @Grey’sFan: In the Nylon interview she talks about partying at 18,19,20 years old not 14 years old like she had said in previous interviews. I think because of her car accident she has a hard time keeping track of what she has said publicly and can’t keep her story straight. She has said in previous interviews that she forgets peoples birthdays and usually tells them it isn’t her fault she was in a car accident and doesn’t remember things. That was 16 years ago she can’t still be using that excuse. There are war veterans that almost died and had major brain damage that have worked hard and recovered completely. She just simply doesn’t try. According tot the Nylon interview.When she was in college she kept heading down to Tijuana Mexico and missed a lot of her classes because she kept partying. Tijuana is a pretty bad place to party, heavy drug scene etc. She left college in San Diego because her father told her he was not paying for her to party instead of go to school or go to auditions instead of go to school . She said ” alright fine” and quit school and asked her dad to get her more into the industry. Not long after she got some commercials and then the OC.

    HA Says:

    @@20@22: Yeah, and she admitted to partying a lot when she was younger, *before* she was famous. Have you seen her partying, drinking, doing drugs since she started on The O.C.? At least she’s grown up and has matured enough to have grown out of doing that. Now, are you going to judge her because when she was a teenager she did was a lot of teens normally do?

    Rachel after the Oc Says:

    It was pointed out she wasn’t so disliked back when the OC first started and now she is. Well a lot of things have changed since 2003.Adam,Ben,Rachel and Mischa were all suppose to be the next A list of Hollywood after the show was canceled that didn’t happen. Mischa Barton use to be a really liked and had a lot of fans now she is better known for her drug problems and a stint in a psych ward. Things change. Over time Rachel has been caught ripping off other people’s designs and using them as her own for her clothing line. Something that turned a lot of people against her. She gets followed by photographers sometimes more than the top A list actors while they are on set. So people have had years to see her not working but acting like someone that needs the spotlight and attention. Rachel Bilson is better known now for gossip blogs and what she wears than anything else besides the OC. OC was a huge show but hey boybands were really huge too and look what happened to every guy that was in a boy band besides maybe Justin Timberlake who has managed to have a career after his NSYNC days. The rest have ended up on Dancing with Stars. As mean as this may sound if it wasn’t for Rachel’s connections with her father or more importantly with Josh Schwartz she would probably be on Dancing with the Stars right now. If Hart of Dixie gets canceled a few years down the road Rachel Bilson just might end up on Dancing with the Stars. This time a year or two ago everyone was talking about how Rachel Bilson didn’t really work anymore. Gossip blogs asked how she still got into some of the events she attended. Hart of Dixie is her first major gig since 2007.The other movies she did all have failed or were never released. People forget that. Hopefully for her sake she is able to keep the Dixie gig. I don’t think another show like that will come her way again. People don’t really hate her I think well at least not most they just are tried of seeing the obvious attentionwhoring and game playing to keep her career going. Of course a lot of people do the things that she does to keep themselves going. I guess the reason people find it so annoying is because she tries to put out this image in interviews and in the public eye that doesn’t always match the things she says or does.
    One day I think it will more Who is Rachel Bilson? Then people saying they hate her.Like Adam Brody and Ben McKenzie she can still get work. The work just isn’t the big parts everyone had expected for her and the others after the OC. It probably won’t ever be. She can’t be “THAT GIRL FROM THE OC” forever. People moved on from that show to Gossip Girl, Twilight and so many things since. There have been dozens of Rachel Bilson types of actresses since. Sophia Bush has had the same problem since One Tree Hill in getting work and Hayden Panettiere after Heros. There are so many actresses that are the same type as her and go out for the same parts as her. That is something hard to compete with.
