Rachel Bilson and Rami Malek are ‘all good’ after their Instagram drama over an old snap went viral

Rachel Bilson and Rami Malek have cleared the air after some dramatic back-and-forth over an old snap lit the internet alight.

The O.C. actress, 39, explained that the stars are ‘good’ after revealing that the Oscar winner, also 39, asked her to take down a throwback pic of them from her Instagram account.

‘Rami and I have actually talked. Since that came out, he connected with me and we’re all good,’ she said during an appearance on the LadyGang podcast on Tuesday.

‘He was so sweet and we’re totally fine now, and we talked about it and we’re good,’ she said in the episode.

‘He was so gracious, and I totally understood where he was coming form and he understood me. And I was just so happy we were able to squash it and, like, move on,’ the Hart of Dixie star added.

Last month, she explained that they both attended Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California, and were in the ‘same crew’.

However despite being friends at high school, Rachel revealed that Rami DM’d her to request she remove a picture of them on Instagram because he’s a ‘private person’.

She made the admission on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert in March, as she revealed she shared a throwback snap just before he won the Oscar for Bohemian Rhapsody in 2019. 

‘I had posted a throwback of us from our senior trip to New York. We’re super nerdy…just the dorkiest picture of the both of us. But I throw it up, ’cause it’s funny and I think it’s so important to be able to make fun of yourself,’ she explained at the time.

She admitted that she doesn’t check her Instagram DM’s too often, but a week later she saw a message from Malek. 

‘It wasn’t like, ‘Hey! How are you?!’ It was straight to: ‘I would really appreciate if you take that down. I’m a really private person,” she explained.

‘I was like, I guess I should’ve found something more flattering. But I removed it and I even wrote to him a really nice message: ‘I’m so sorry. Go get the Oscar! You’re doing amazing.’

‘And I never heard anything back, which is fine. But I was super bummed because he was always so nice and we were good friends,’ she added.

The story quickly took off, with social media discussing the exchange ad nauseum, much to the embarrassment of Bilson: ‘My friend sent me a CNN link to it. I was like, “Are you kidding me?!”‘

‘I was so mortified though. I was having a panic attack, I had to go to therapy that day and I was like, “I’m having anxiety. I did not want this to resurface in this way. I feel so bad. Oh my god, Rami is going to think I’m doing this again and everything,”‘ she now explained, adding that she’s happy they have been able to ‘move on.’ 

No ill intent: 'It actually turned out to be a good thing for reasons. We were able to reconnect and make it better and everything's great,' Bilson said. 'I get it and I totally understood. And he knew I wasn't doing it with any ill intentions' (Rami is seen in 2019)

She previously explained that Rami was, ‘a good friend of mine’ in high school, explaining that they were the leads in The Crucible during their senior year.

She added that, throughout the years they had ‘kind of kept in contact’ before he got ‘super famous,’ adding he was always ‘super talented’ and a ‘really amazing actor, even in high school.’ 

Rachel had her big break just a few years out of high school, starring in Fox’s The O.C, while Malek hit Hollywood in 2015 with Mr. Robot, before winning his Oscar for playing Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. 

Rachel is currently promoting her new podcast, Welcome to the OC, B*tches!, which premiered this week and finds her chatting all things The O.C. with former co-star Melinda Clarke.
