Rachel Sarah Bilson (born August 25, 1981) is an American actress. Bilson grew up in a California show business family, and made her television debut in 2003, subsequently becoming well-known for playing Summer Roberts on the prime time drama series The O.C. Bilson made her film debut in the 2006 film The Last Kiss and starred in the 2008 action/science fiction film Jumper. Starting in 2011, Rachael took on the role of portraying Zoe Hart on CW's show "Hart of Dixie."


Bilson and Adam Brody, her co-star on The O.C., dated for three years, ending in 2006.[29] The following year, she met Hayden Christensen on the set ofJumper in 2007 and became engaged in 2008.[30] In mid-2010 the couple split up but were dating again a few months later.[31][32][33][34][35]

Bilson has been recognized by several media sources as being a "fashion junkie".[36][37][38] She has described herself as having a "vintage" sense of style, and has noted Kate Moss and Diane Keaton as inspirations.[38] Her clothes often have a "boho" feel to them. She approached DKNY Jeans in late 2007 with a view to design a clothing line with the popular fashion brand.[39] Together they created Edie Rose. The collection was launched in September 2008. It consisted of mainly black and white separates with a splash of yellow that could easily work with an existing wardrobe. Her idea was to keep fashionable items accessible to young women by keeping the prices of each piece under $100.[40] An advertising image was released in July 2008 which featured Bilson modelling her Edie Rose collection.[41] Of her line, she said in an interview with Teen Vogue that "I wanted to keep it as separate as possible from Rachel Bilson the actress. I'm hoping people will appreciate it for the clothes, not the person behind them."[42] Much of her fashion collection was lost when her home was burglarized in May 2009.[43] Bilson's fashions and sense of style made her the unwitting target of the Bling Ring, who burglarized her home on several occasions.[44][45]

Before appearing in Maxim, Bilson had turned down requests to appear seminude in men's magazines, specifying that she feels that her body "is sacred" and "not there for the whole world to see".[46]
