Rachel Bilson: I Was a “Dumbass” While On The O.C.
Welcome to the O.C., bitch dumbass.
The O.C. star Rachel Bilson tells British Cosmopolitan that she's grown up a lot since appearing on the hit Fox show in the early 2000s.
"I didn't have any idea how much The O.C. would change my life," the 31-year-old Hart of Dixie star says.
"I thought I knew everything, but now I look back and think, 'You were a dumbass! What was your problem?'" Rachel adds.

Rachel admits that she "went through a little bit of a wild phase... and got into trouble" as a teenager. She finally turned things around after getting into a near-fatal car crash at age 14 that left her unconscious for several days and with a scar over her right eye.
"It definitely impacted me and how I was living my life," she says.
Rachel also discussed her relationship with longtime boyfriend, Star Wars star Hayden Christensen, and she even hinted that might be ready for kids soon.
"Thirty is a whole different thing; you can slow down and focus on family," she says. "Starting a family one day is definitely something I look forward to."
"I've been in a relationship [with Hayden] for six years, and I'm happy," Rachel continues. "To have a partner is one of the greatest things. I've always been a fan of love."
