Why we love Rachel Bilson
There’s no better way to sign up millions of extra fans than by playing the role of ‘really cute girl with a soft spot for geeky guys’.
Los Angeles born Rachel Bilson’s character from The O.C., Summer Roberts, did just that, and arguably better than it’s ever been done before. But it wasn’t just the geeks who noticed. Everyone did.
Howard Stern called her “the hottest chick in Hollywood”. Co-star Adam Brody asked her out and bought her a bulldog. We listed her as the 16th Sexiest Woman in the World in 2008.
To hammer home the point that she digs a guy who knows his way around a D&D board, Rachel Bilson jumped into a relationship with Jedi boy Hayden Christensen after they filmed the film Jumper. They pair have had an on, off, on again, engaged, off, on again, we think, relationship for some time, but we bet they’re really happy.
Rachel Bilson has most recently been in Hart of Dixie, one of the glossy American TV series that usually make their way over here at some point. In Dixie, Rachel Bilson plays Dr. Zoe Hart, a sassy New York cardio thoracic surgeon, who finds herself working at a small medical practice in Alabama. Some people don’t like her, some people do. Some fancy her. It’s a bit like like Doc Martin, but only really in that both feature doctors. And Rachel Bilson is infinitely more palatable to look at than Martin Clunes.
