Actress Rachel Bilson said on Tuesday that Rami Malek reconnected with her weeks after mentioning he previously asked her to take a photo she posted on Instagram of the two teenagers.
“Rami and I have actually been talking since this came out,” the “The OC” actress said on the Lady Gang podcast. “He connected with me, and we’re all good. He was so nice and we’re totally fine now and we’ve talked about it and we’re good.”
She called “The Little Things” gracious “star, adding that she” totally understood where he was coming from and that he understood me. And I was so happy that we were able to squash it and, like, move on. ”
Bilson said last month on the Armchair Expert podcast that in 2019, when Malek was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” she decided to post a throwback photo from when the actors were classmates on a senior trip to Broadway.

“But it wasn’t like, ‘Hey! How are you?! It was blunt: ‘I would really appreciate it if you took that out. I’m a really private person, “” she said at the time. She added that she started to panic and fear that she had made a mistake after her request.
After the March podcast, the story began to explode in the news.

She told Lady Gang that she meant it was a “laid back,” “funny” story on the podcast, but then felt like it might explode and be misinterpreted.
