Rachel Bilson Runs Into Ex Adam Brody At Airport & Has Mini-The O.C. Reunion
Soulmates always find their way back to each other, right? Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody just had a chance meeting at JFK airport and the photo is bringing back all kinds of nostalgia. The pair played an on-screen couple in the Fox sitcom The O.C. until 2007 and also dated off-screen for three years.
Rachel uploaded a photo of her and Adam in the airport to her Instagram yesterday alongside the caption: “Ran into my ol buddy from jfk to lax” and cheekily added the hashtag #californiaherewecome. Any fans of The O.C. will know exactly what she’s referencing there.
While some people commented on the post with hopes that The O.C would be getting a reunion show, the show’s creator, Josh Schwartz, poked fun at the pair by commenting: “Sorry, don’t get the reference.”
The O.C. ran on Fox from 2003 to 2007 and starred Rachel and Adam as on-screen lovers Summer Roberts and Seth Cohen. Like a lot of TV couples, the actors took their relationship off-screen and dated IRL for just over three years. They split in 2006, with a source telling People that they “just grew apart,” leaving fans of the show disappointed. But the two remained friends as the actors continued to play their respective roles on the California-based show for another year after their breakup. Summer and Seth even ended the series [SPOILER ALERT] with their wedding — how’s that for awkward?
The picture can have fans rest assured that the pair is still on good terms. Rachel now has a four-year-old daughter with her ex Hayden Christensen, while Adam is married to and has one daughter with Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl. Don’t you just love when things work out?
