Biography

 

Early life

Bilson was born in Los Angeles, California to a Jewish American father[2] (writer/director/producer Danny Bilson) and a Philadelphia-born Italian American mother,[3] Janice Stango. Her father comes from a showbusiness family, as her great-grandfather, George Bilson, was the head of the trailer department at RKO Pictures, while her great-grandmother, Hattie, was a screenwriter and her grandfather, Bruce Bilson, is a film director.[4] Bilson's parents divorced during her childhood, and in 1997, her father remarried Heather Medway, an actress and the mother of Bilson's half sister Hattie (born December 19, 2001).

 

Bilson has been noted as having a "self-destructive, rebellious period" during her teen years.[5] When she was sixteen, she and a group of her brother's friends[6] were involved in a car accident, a head-on collision with another car. As a result, Bilson was unconscious for a few days, had a scar above her right eye, and sometimes suffers from migraines and memory loss;[7] she has stated that the experience "changed" her,[6] encouraging her to "stop... getting into trouble"[4] and stopping her from "going down that road".[6] Bilson graduated from Walter Reed Middle School in 1996 and from Notre Dame High School in 1999. During her time at Notre Dame, she appeared in productions of Bye Bye Birdie, Once Upon a Mattress and The Crucible, and appeared on stage together with Katharine McPhee, who attended the same school.[8] (McPhee would later be a future finalist on American Idol.)

 

 

Career

At the age of seventeen, Bilson took her father's advice to pursue a professional acting career,[4] and made several appearances in commercials, including advertisements for Raisin Bran and Pepto-Bismol.[4] She made her screen acting debut in early 2003, appearing in episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, and in the short film, Unbroken. Bilson was subsequently cast in The O.C., which debuted in August of 2003. Her character, Summer Roberts, was initially intended to appear in only a few episodes, but became a series regular after a successful run, as Bilson's on-screen romance with Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) became a noted aspect of the series.

 

As a result of the success of The O.C., Bilson has become well-known among teenage audiences. At the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, Bilson collected three awards - "Choice Hottie Female", "Choice TV Actress (Drama)" and "Best Onscreen TV Chemistry" (jointly won with Adam Brody).[9] In 2005, Maxim magazine named her sixth in their annual "Hot 100 List";[10] in 2006, the publication awarded her #14.[11] The UK edition of FHM Magazine named her 28th in the 2006 100 Sexiest Women in the World list,[12] while the US Edition Ranked her 77th in 2005.[13] Bilson was also named one of the "50 Most Beautiful People" in 2006 People magazine.[14]

 

Bilson's first film role is in the The Last Kiss, a romantic comedy/drama also starring Zach Braff and Jacinda Barrett. In the film, which opened on September 15, 2006, Bilson plays a college student who seduces Braff's character. Bilson had long wanted to work with Braff, having admired the film Garden State, which he directed and starred in.[15] A body double was used for the film's sexual scene between Bilson and Braff's characters, as Bilson specified that she "feel[s] really strong[ly]" about not appearing in a nude scene.[16] One review of the film noted that Bilson played the role with "surprising depth",[17] although another critic described her role as "Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction as an airhead valley girl with a hot bod".[18]

 

Bilson has stated that she prefers acting in feature films to appearing on television, and that though she is "grateful" for the success of The O.C.,[19] she feels that the show "is over" and that she is "ready to move on" to film roles.[20] In September of 2006, unconfirmed reports surfaced that Bilson was linked to star in a film version of the comic book character Wonder Woman;[21] Bilson has stated that these reports were untrue.[22]

 

On October 16 2006, news emerged that Bilson has signed on for the role of Millie in Doug Liman's upcoming thriller Jumper, as the replacement for Teresa Palmer. [23]

 

 

Personal life

Bilson has been dating her The O.C. co-star, Adam Brody, for several years. In 2005, Brody gave Bilson a pit bull dog, Penny Lane, as a birthday gift, and the couple later adopted another dog, named Thurmen Murmen. In 2004, several sources reported that Brody and Bilson were engaged,[24] although Bilson's publicist denied the report.[25] In September of 2006, several media sources made unconfirmed claims that Bilson and Brody's relationship may soon end, citing Bilson's friendship with her Last Kiss co-star, Zach Braff, as the reason for the relationship's end.[26][27] In an interview the same month, Bilson replied that she is "not commenting" to a question regarding her personal life.[28]

 

Bilson has volunteered with the Young storytellers program. She has been recognized by several media sources as being a "fashion junkie"[29] and a "style icon".[30][31][28] She has described herself as having a "vintage" sense of style, and noted Kate Moss and Diane Keaton as inspirations.[28] Bilson enjoys watching television game shows, especially Jeopardy!,[4] and has stated that if she were not acting, she would be a pre-school teacher.[28]

 

Bilson has turned down requests to appear semi-nude in magazines, specifying that she feels that her body "is sacred" and "not there for the whole world to see".[32]
