The ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress reveals her past crush on the ‘Gossip Girl’ star and the actor responds by saying that he wouldn’t mind being romantically linked to her.
AceShowbiz –Rachel Bilson was once competing against her friend to attract Chace Crawford‘s attention. Saying she once had a crush on the “Gossip Girl” star, the former “O.C.” actress – who has seven-year-old daughter Briar Rose with ex-husband Hayden Christensen – recalled one night out they had with a group of pals at New York City’s Boom Boom Room in the early 2000s.
“We were silently battling for Chace’s attention. We were for sure in competition for you,” she confessed to Chace on her “Broad Ideas” podcast.
Unfazed, “The Boys” actor replied, “We were at the top floor where they had the great cheeseburgers. That was a great night, and we all had a blast. New York City was so much fun back then.”
Despite trying to attract Chace’s attention on that occasion, she was horrified some time later when a sighting of them together sparked rumours they were an item. Rachel, 41, told her guest, “Someone saw us talking and the press went with, ‘Oh, did Rachel and Chace hook up?’ “
“My publicist came to me and because at the time I was on a break from my serious relationship, I told her she had to kill the story. They printed it, but it had a quote from my publicist that this is completely fabricated and I’m like, ‘Wait that is so mean. I would never want to do that to Chace!’ “
But the 37-year-old actor insisted he had no idea about the relationship rumours – but would have been “thrilled” to have been romantically linked with the “Hart of Dixie” actress. He joked, “You are so nice. I didn’t even realise this all went down. I would have been thrilled if they thought we were dating!”
