Rachel Bilson and Olivia Wilde had a mini O.C. reunion, and our 2003 hearts are rejoicing

Calling all early-2000s teen drama fans: Rachel Bilson and Olivia Wilde had the mini O.C. reunion of your Newport Beach dreams. Bilson and Wilde reconnected at a star-studded Baby2Baby gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 10th.

Both Bilson and Wilde starred in the 2003 drama series The O.C., a teen soap that followed rebellious Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie) as he moved in with public defender (Peter Gallagher) and his family in the affluent city of Newport Beach. Bilson played popular girl Summer Roberts, and Wilde played bartender and “resident rebel girl” Alex Kelly.

At the event, Wilde rocked a chic suit while Bilson stunned in a black and green dress.


Baby2Baby is a charity that assists low-income children with basic necessities, such as diapers and clothing. At the gala, actress Amy Adams was honored with a Baby2Baby Giving Tree Award. Among the attendees were Kelly Rowland, Olivia Munn, and Jessica Alba.

The charity took to Instagram on November 11th to share a star-packed photo, with the caption, “Last night’s Baby2Baby Gala was an incredibly special evening dedicated to the families we serve in our hometown of Los Angeles and across the country.”

Since The O.C.’s final season in 2007, Bilson has since starred in the CW’s Hart of Dixie and ABC’s Take Two, andshewelcomed a daughter in October 2014 with actor Hayden Christensen. Wilde has since starred in films like Life Itself and TRON: Legacy; she has two children with actor Jason Sudeikis.

We are living for this mini O.C. reunion.
