Seems like everyone is getting married or engaged lately, what with supermodels like Adriana Lima and Giselle (please don't make me look up the spelling of her last name right now), as well as every Salma finally making it legal with her billionaire baby daddy. (I only WISH I could have that opportunity. As quoted from BOILER ROOM, "They say money can't buy happiness? Look at the f*cking smile on my face. Ear to ear, baby."
) Rachel Bilson is one of those chicks who's been in the news with an engagement to Hayden Vadar, so I thought we might investigate if she's worth the press.
I don't honestly remember seeing this chick before "The O.C." made its big splash back in 2003. And by looking at her resume, I wasn't missing anything. She'd had a couple of minor walk-on parts on other television shows, but the quickly popular little 90210 rip-off died with audiences and Bilson was forced to go looking for work elsewhere.
Which landed her right into the lap of Zach Braff and the dismal romantic dramedy, THE LAST KISS. I had a problem with the fact that even though Bilson is cute and all, she's not exactly the girl that you go completely ga-ga over and have to reevaluate your life for. That movie mostly frustrated me because it made me feel like it wasted good talent (Casey Affleck, Tom Wilkinson) all for the ego of Braff, who I don't care if people hate me for saying, is ugly and annoying, not quirkily cute or charming in any regard.
Since then, Bilson's been in a couple episodes of "Chuck," which is only notable to me since the star, Zachary Levi, is a hometown boy in my neck of the woods. Still doesn't mean I watch the show, but there you go. She's also been in JUMPER, a mess of a movie, where she met her current soon-to-be shackled beard. Marriage is great and all... when you're ready to admit that your life isn't going anywhere and have given up hope for something better.
I'll get off my cranky horse and leave this one up to you. While I think Bilson is cute for sure, she's not ringing my Hot bell. What about yours?
