Did Rachel Bilson dump Hayden Christensen & was Sophie Monk involved?

wenn5303360

This news is sort of a non-event, but still, it’s looking like a slow news day, so what the hell. Back in June, Us Weekly reported the rumors that Hayden Chistensen and Rachel Bilson were on a “break”. The two had been engaged since February 2009, and there hadn’t been much in the way of wedding planning or excitement, so the news didn’t come as a big shocker. Plus, many of us feel that Hayden might be confused about his sexuality, but whatever. Anyway, Us Weekly got a hard confirmation from Rachel’s rep that the engagement is totally off. Still nothing from Hayden’s rep, although who knows if Harden’s rep is even answering his calls at this point?

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have officially ended their relationship, her rep confirms UsMagazine.com.

“Yes, the engagement is off, therefore, so is the wedding,” her rep tells Us.

In June, a source told Us the couple — who co-starred in the 2008 action flick, Jumper — were “taking about a month off” to evaluate their relationship. “They’re taking a break,” the insider added.

Around the same time, Bilson flashed a ringless finger to Us on the red carpet of a THQ/Take No Prisoners event in L.A. When asked how wedding plans were going, she said, “No, no plans” and pointed to her bare hand. “No nothing.”

Christensen, 29, and Bilson, 28, announced their engagement in February 2009.

Is it sad? Sure. Rachel really seemed to love Hayden, and I’m getting the vibe that she’s kind of heartbroken. I’m also getting the vibe that Hayden couldn’t care less, and that he’s working through his own sh-t right now. I’m hoping that Rachel gets her act together, career-wise, and comes back smart. Does she think she’s too good for another television show? She’s not. She’s a cutie, and she would be great on a smart television show. Also: I’d like to see her get a new stylist. But first we need to work on her career.

Also – Hayden was seen a few days ago with Sophie Monk? Are they hitting it? It doesn’t appear so, but you never know. Didn’t Sophie fake-date Ryan Seacrest at one point? Oh, this doesn’t look good.

    I agree that Rachel should get a hip new tv show. Shes failed in movies and should go back to what she was good at. Not all TV girls make the switch Rach.

    How much you wanna bet shes trying to get a more famous bf now?

    Haydens got no options at all though. Over.

  2. Snarf says:

    Looks like last minute contract negotiaitions failed.

  3. Brittney says:

    Even fake relationships don’t last long in Hollywood. (Unless you’re a Scientologist.)

  4. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Hayden is no actor, that’s for sure.

  5. Praise St. Angie! says:

    There are so many actors about which people say “oh, he’s gay!” and I don’t buy into it.

    however, he’s one of the few about which I agree. I don’t think he’s confused about his sexuality, I think he’s in denial about it.

  6. Jean says:

    @ Fluffy Kitten Tail
    Neither is Rachel.
    And as a general rule, I don’t think bad actors, just because they can’t manage to land movie roles any longer, should do TV. Quality TV shows are rare and few to come by, and then of course, the matter of personal preference plays a role in whether one can enjoy a TV show or not. That being said, I appreciate TV shows as means for a little escapism, and bad acting often prevents this.

  7. Cam says:

    FINALLY, i’m sorry… i know it’s sad, but i’ve been waiting for them to split up ever since they got engaged, they’re just not meant to be! (yeah, I know… who the hell am I to say that?). I love Hayden, and am totally obsessed with him, he’s one of my fav actors; and I definitely don’t like Rachel, so yeah… it is personal.

    And he’s not gay, at all.. but if he was: yay! :)

    Team Hayden 100%.

  8. kelbear says:

    I actually really like Rachel. She was so much better in The OC than Mischa.

  9. California Surfer says:

    This Rachael chick looks like the one from that 70′s show who is a pretty good actress and Hayden looks high on weed without the red eyes so maybe it is a different drug he is on?

  10. lauren says:

    Who the heck is this Sophia Monk person? I always see paparazzi photos of her… why?!? Why does anyone care about her or Hayden or Rachel? Bunch of nobodies.

  11. Feebee says:

    Can someone buy Sophie a one way ticket back to Australia please.

    I vaguely remember her being back of some manufactured girl-group that lasted all of 6 seconds or so, since then all she’s been known for is flitting round hollywood latching on to some ‘name’ male actors and showing us her camel toe. Go home Sophie, go home.

  12. Iggles says:

    It doesn’t look good when brunettes dye the ends of their hair a dirty blonde color. Leighton Meester was rocking that look awhile ago. It looks washed out and unflattering.

    As for Hayden, I do think he’s confused. There’s so many gay actors in Hollywood, I don’t understand why he’s fighting it. I just hope he doesn’t rope another girl into his drama. Not cool (unless she *agrees* to be his beard).

    That said, I’ve loved Hayden since “Higher Ground”! I hope he finds his way.

  13. Jazz says:

    Yeah, Sophie Monk is not one of our best exports. *hangs head in shame*

  14. Shawna says:

    @Iggles, in fact, have we established yet how much alike LM and RB look?

  15. Novaraen says:

    I don’t know where everyone gets that Hayden is gay. He has done nothing, in my opinion to warrant that.

    As for his acting…I think he is doing just fine. In fact…I felt that Natalie Portman in Star Wars did a much worse job than he did. MUCH MUCH worse.

    At least he is still getting acting jobs…Rachel, on the other hand should go back to TV.

  16. LondonLady says:

    Who is Sophie Monk?

  17. Kate says:

    Rachel > Sophie.

    That would be a downgrade, Hayden… major downgrade.

  18. Ruffian9 says:

    In good news; I’m loving Sophie Monks’ (or whoever the chick is in the top pic)hair and now know how I want my highlights done.

  19. Annabelle says:

    damn aren’t sophie’s eyes usually blue?
    they look black in those pics.
    Is she trippin on stimulants?

  20. trashaddict says:

    Hayden acted in Star Wars???? All the passion and chemistry of a lump of clay. Anakin Skywalker was a character who lost his soul, Hayden played a character who had no soul to begin with. Thank god for Ewan McGregor, he saved the franchise. The other actors were generally bad, and even among them Hayden looked completely out of his element. I question whether there are any talented casting directors left in Hollywood. These actors’ skills do not justify their pay.

  21. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    We don’t blame you Jazz, just as we hope no one blames us for Spencer Pratt.
