Actress Rachel Bilson has come clean about rumors linking her to The Bachelor hunk Nick Viall, insisting they’re not dating.
The O.C. star and Viall were at the center of romance rumors over the summer after the pair exchanged flirty messages on social media in July, but she insists it wasn’t anything serious.
“(We were) just messing around,” she tells Us Weekly. “We’re just friends. We’ve always just been friends. He’s a really nice guy.”
Rachel and Nick are both single after she separated from actor husband Hayden Christensen in 2017, the same year Viall broke off his engagement to his The Bachelor fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi.
