Actress Rachel Bilson, 40, confirmed that she had an affair with Bill Hader, 44, during the pandemic. The star of ‘The OC’ even said that the end was more painful than the delivery.
The information was published by the OK! this Friday (17), which reflected actress Aubrey Plaza’s trip to Rachel Bilsen’s podcast.

Rachel Bilson, who shares a 5-year-old daughter with her ex-husband Hayden, went deeper into her relationship with Bill and said it was a “very difficult separation” that happened “during the pandemic”.
In the previous episode earlier this month, Rachel caught up with Mandy Moore and talked more about the breakup phase, when she “couldn’t leave my house” because of Covid-19 and “had nothing else to do but sit and feel and deal with it.” That’s when she admitted, “It was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Harder than childbirth.”
In January, Entertainment Tonight revealed through a source that Bill Hader had been “dating for some time” actress Anna Kendrick.
With Hayden Christensen, Rachel was married between 2007 and 2017; they met while shooting the movie ‘Jumper’ which premiered in 2008.
At the time of the divorce, US Magazine revealed that Emma Roberts would have been the pivot of the end of their marriage. Rachel would have found intimate messages on her husband’s cell phone exchanged between him and actress Julia Roberts’ niece.
According to the 2017 publication, the romance between Emma Roberts and Hayden Christensen would have started behind the scenes of the filming of the romantic comedy ‘Love in Little Italy’, directed by Donald Petrie.
