Rachel Bilson apologizes to fans for old breakup with Adam Brody

If you grew up in the 2000s, then chances are that you’ve seen every episode of “The O.C.” Before “Riverdale” or even “Gossip Girl,” the show had everything a teenager could want in a series: drama, unbelievably gorgeous actors and California beaches everywhere.

Though there were plenty of actors on the show to stan, the ultimate “O.C.” couple both on- and off-screen was Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson. On the show, the actors’ characters Seth and Summer dated on and off — and in real life, they dated for three years.

When Brody and Bilson broke up, teens everywhere were devastated. And now, more than a decade later, Bilson is apologizing for the heartbreak she caused all those years ago.

On March 25, InStyle posted an old photo of the young couple to Instagram. In the caption, they wrote, “#rachelbilson and #adambrody‘s breakup basically ruined high school for us.”

In the comments, Bilson was extremely apologetic.

“IM SORRY!!!!” she wrote. “He fared really well!” she added, referring to the actor’s marriage to “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester.

For what it’s worth, Bilson fared really well, too. After dating her co-star, she went on to have a decade-long relationship with Hayden Christensen, with whom she now has a child. Currently, the former “O.C.” star is dating “Saturday Night Live” alum Bill Hader.
