Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson Break Up After 9 Years of Dating

By  | 

First, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their separation and proved that love isn’t real. Then, Fergie and Josh Duhamel decided to go their separate ways. Now, to hit us with a third dagger to the heart, it’s being reported that Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson broke up after almost 10 years together.


A source told Us Weekly that the 36-year-old stars “are completely, officially done.”

Apparently, the couple has “been on the outs for a couple of months.”

“She’s full-time back in L.A. He’s in Toronto,” the insider continued.


Hayden and Rachel met on the set of the movie Jumper in 2008 and got engaged that December. They actually called off their engagement in August 2010, but decided to get back together in November.

“That was an amazing experience,” the former O.C. actress said of meeting her now-ex so long ago. “It was the most precious time. We were shooting in Italy and inside the Coliseum…The role was fulfilling, but also everything was fulfilling as a life experience, it was one of the best times. I think anytime you’re on location you feel like you’re away at summer camp in a way. You’re more open and receptive to life experiences than you are at home.”

The couple seemed happy as ever from that point on and welcomed a little girl named Briar Rose Christensen on October 29, 2014.

Back in June, Rachel called Hayden a “wonderful father” and said he is “so present and just so awesome with her” during an appearance on Entertainment Weekly‘s talk show, Mamarazzi.

“[We] try to be on the same page together and do things together as much as possible,” she added. “Our date night is watching TV on the couch.”


We definitely did NOT see this one coming. Can all of our favorite Hollywood couples stop breaking up, like, yesterday?
