She got her big break playing Summer Roberts in The OC.
And it seems that the sunshine is back in 32-year-old Rachel Bilson’s life again; as she was spotted back by the ocean on Wednesday… wearing a very Newport Beach appropriate bikini.
But this time time the brunette was far from from Orange County, as the skimpy bandeau number – that showed off her petite toned form – had been selected for sunbathing in Cancun, Mexico.
The Hart of Dixie star is enjoying a break from filming at the beautiful locale, and while she wasn’t pictured with long-term love, Hayden Christensen, also 32, he was on the trip.
The couple started dating in 2007 and despite breaking off an engagement, Rachel and Hayden have certainly settled down together.
Rachel appeared on The Wendy Williams Show earlier this year and sheepishly replied ‘Yeah,’ when asked if she and Hayden were still dating.
The pretty brunette told the chat show host they felt no pressure to get married.
Rachel and Hayden met on the set of their film Jumper in 2007 and got engaged in 2008.
They called off the engagement and briefly split in 2010, but resumed dating again a few months later.
Hayden sold his bachelor pad in 2012 shortly after Rachel sold her home and they are currently living with each other after house-hunting together.
Rachel continues to play a New York City surgeon who moves to sleepy Bluebell, Alabama in the CW series Hart Of Dixie.
