Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen celebrate their reunion with bikini photo op

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen look to be back together after their split last summer, as evident by these photos of the couple no one cares about vacationing in Barbados. Several photo agencies have these pictures, and again this is in Barbados and it’s not like any photographers are going to be following these two on vacation. Rachel wore several different bikinis for these photo ops (here she is in another bikini on DListed) to maximize her publicity options. I suppose we’ll next be hearing about how they’re re-engaged:

The couple, who reportedly threw in the towel on their over three-year relationship in March, were spotted soaking up the sun during an island getaway to Barbados to celebrate Christensen’s 30th birthday.

Bilson, 29, was photographed showcasing her fit physique in several tiny string bikinis while spending the day swimming in the Caribbean ocean with Christensen, whom she met on the set of “Jumper” in 2007. The low-key couple later got engaged in December of the following year.

But last summer, the actress was spotted sans engagement ring as reports surfaced that she and her “Star Wars” beau were “taking a break” to reevaluate their relationship. One of the main reasons for the split was reportedly due to the distance between Bilson in Los Angeles and Christensen in Canada.

Bilson’s rep confirmed in August that the couple’s engagement was off, but the two appeared to be giving their relationship another shot when they were spotted hanging out again in L.A. three months later.

Despite breaking up and making up yet again, the couple may have to face another geographical obstacle if Bilson continues working on her new pilot, “Hart of Dixie,” in Wilmington, N.C.

I’ve said that I don’t find Rachel as grating as Kaiser does, but I’m definitely seeing Kaiser and Lainey’s point that she oversells. Bilson had one movie out last year, she has one in the can for this year (with Kate Bosworth, doesn’t that seem fitting?) and now she’s staging vacation photos to announce her next project. She also has a porcelain line at Macys and hopes to go into bedding. I’m surprised she doesn’t have a perfume, clothing line or exercise tape out yet.

When your main career as an actor or singer is flailing, there’s always the opportunity to try and sell your personal life and launch a side business to bring in cash. Still, Bilson is doing much better than her old O.C. costar, Mischa Barton. That’s not saying much.

    Oh, I thought breaking up and making up were their careers. Didn’t realize they other interests.

  3. Meg says:

    Apparently he’s not so confident of his body at the moment as he didn’t ok any pics with his shirt off. hmmmm….

    At this point, I’m just grateful for any celebrity who doesn’t feel the need to share their Deep Thoughts on organic wheatgerm in weekly newsletters.

    I’ve had a weird fondness for Christiansen ever since Shattered Glass, and noticing he has very similar eyes to James Stewart.

  9. jeezzer says:

  10. NOT AGAIN says:

    Paparazzi is on vacation with them, when more then 1 time seen at the beach you know it’s a set up, play for the camera. Both careers are dead in the ocean water they are swimming in. She needs any help she can get, even if it’s from a closet man.

  11. Danielle says:

    I have this bikini!!! sadly, it doesn’t look that good on me LOL

  12. lexy hates bilson says:

    I guess they think we’re stupid and we believe that the paps are following them around on their “vacation” – you know like they are Jay-Z & Beyonce or Tom & Katie. These 2 aren’t even in Snookie’s league of celebrity status there’s no way the paps would follow them on vacation unless it was a “paid” for.

  13. ToastedSkin says:

    cutest couple ever. I’m so glad they got back together.

  14. jemshoes says:

    I kind of don’t mind these two. :) I think they’re cute together. I confess to also having watched their movie, “Jumper” and enjoying it. :D

    Looks like RB sucks a lot WHITENING PILLS coz when did she get that alabaster skin?! As far as I know just very recently or more like just before this beach photo ops. Here’s her original complexion where it somewhat similar to the skin tones of Eva Longoria & Vanessa Hudgens; y’ know those dark/tan celebs…

    So this was like desperate plea for casting agents, directors & producers to give them acting job/s isnt it?!
