If you’re an ’80s or ’90s kid, you have probably read on MySpace and Twitter about Rachel Bilson and Hayden’s relationship, which was in the spotlight in the 2000s. 

Read on to find out what actually happened between the co-stars from “Jumper Together”. 

Hayden Christensen’s acting career and best performances

The 41-year-old actor started his acting career back in 1993, with his debut appearance in a single episode of “E.N.G.”. 

The following decade brought him some of the best roles he’s had so far, including movies such as “Family Passions”, “In The Mouth of Madness”, and “No Greater Love”. 

In 2002, Hayden officially joined the cast of Star Wars, a movie franchise which will ultimately turn out to be one his biggest, most important achievements in his career. 

The first movie in the franchise he starred in is titled “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones”, in which he portrayed Anakin Skywalker. 

He soon repeated his amazing performance as Anakin in the sequel titled “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith”, as well as the newer sequel from 2010 called “Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker”. 

Hayden has also played Darth Vader (a.k.a. Anakin) in two TV mini-series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” from 2022, and “Ahsoka”, which is set to air in 2023. 

Who is Rachel Bilson?

Very similar to her co-star and ex-partner Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilson started her career back in 1992. 

The beautiful actress made her debut appearance on TV as she briefly joined the cast of TV series such as “Human Target”, “It’s True!”, and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”. 

From 2000 to 2010, the actress has made several great performances in TV series including “The O.C.” in which she portrayed Summer Roberts for 92 episodes. 

In 2008, Rachel shared the screen with Hayden Christensen for the first time, which is exactly how the two met and hit it off. 

From 2010, she appeared in movies such as “Life Happens”, “The American Heist”, and “Lovestruck”. 

During the same period, Bilson has made big appearances in the main cast of “Hart of Dixie”, “Take Two”, and “Nashville”. 

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen’s relationship timeline 

The two very popular actors shared the screen for the first time back in 2008, when they co-starred in the movie titled “Jumper Together”. 

The two hit it off and started dating soon after the movie’s premiere. 

Just a year later, Rachel and Hayden surprised their fans with the official engagement announcement. 

However, a couple of months later, their engagement was postponed, and ultimately called off in 2010. 

The couple continued to shock their friends, family and fans altogether when they decided to reconcile just a few months later, still in 2010, and their engagement was back on!

This time, the couple decided to stick together and dated for several years after. 

Rachel and Hayden welcomed a baby girl in 2014 named Briar Rose Christensen. 

They officially split up in 2017, although it’s not clear yet as to why. 

The couple never officially married or at least publicly said they did. 

Are Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen still friends?

As the two co-parents were spotted in Disneyland with their daughter Briar in 2019, and on many other occasions, we believe the two are still on good terms. 

Ever since Hayden and Bilson welcomed their daughter together, Rachel has said on many occasions how good of a father he is to their daughter. 

It’s always good to notice that parents don’t let their children suffer due to their own differences and split ups.
