On Monday’s (September 25) episode of her Broad Ideas With Rachel Bilson podcast, Rachel detailed how she hit it off with Justin before Olivia Allen, the podcast’s co-host, spoiled the occasion.

“In our day [Justin] was very big, right? Like the biggest. Sorry, no disrespect – he’s still very big. We were all at a party or something, and he was there and I was so obsessed with him,” Rachel said.

Hesitant to tell more, Rachel deferred to Olivia, who added, “We were kicking it with him. We were making friends with him. [Rachel] went up to him, obviously or he came up to [Rachel].”

Olivia described the awkward moment when she got in the way of Rachel‘s flirty conversation with Justin.

“I got drunk and embarrassed myself a little because he was trying to flirt with Rachel. This is the truth. You want the truth. I was drunk and I [sat] in between them,” she said. “I was just drunk and wanted to keep talking to him.”

Olivia, jokingly told Rachel, “He wasn’t mad at me. You might have been.”

Rachel and Justin‘s potential romance obviously never materialized, as Justin went on to marry Jessica Biel in 2012 and Rachel dated Hayden Christensen for almost a decade before the pair called off their engagement in 2017.
