Beautiful Rachel Bilson is Nylon’s ‘favorite national It Girl’. The 30-year-old actress lands on the magazine’s November 2011 America issue and opens up about her nighttime routine and her bottomless Chloe bag, but also about the origins of her famous fashion sense, auditioning for Tangled, and her life since turning 30.
There is no doubt whatsoever that the charming ‘Hart of Dixie’ star always manages to put together inspirational looks both when it comes to her daytime style and her red carpet appearances. Speaking about her fashion sense, Rachel admits that “I always had to dress myself, which is very interesting when you’re two. My poor mom. There was this one dress, it was my favorite – it was really colorful and big and ridiculous. I wore it until it fell apart. I was a very bossy fashionista when I was three. I feel like if I ever have a daughter, there is going to be some sweet revenge placed on me because of how I was as a kid.”
The actress also reveals that as for her nighttime routine she sounds more like an 80-year-old. “I’m all about Netflix and ordering Teen Mom on iTunes. I go to bed at nine! I’m not as interested in going out and partying at night anymore; I’m more set in my ways. I know I sound like an 80-year-old,” Rachel told Nylon.
On what’s in her bottomless Chloe bag, Rachel says that, “I feel like Mary Poppins! Look at this, I have a bra in here!” Next she pulls out her birth control and takes her Saturday dose with a sip of milkshake. “The first week I get so nauseous so I have to take it with food… All right, let’s see what else is here: makeup remover, Advil, nail accessories… Oh! I have socks and a pen in here, too! My wallet, sunglasses, my call sheet, checkbook… I have some Mexican jumping beans! You never know when you may need them,” Rachel told Nylon.
The star also dished on auditioning for Tangled. “I sang Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, and I went in before Mandy Moore! I was totally mortified. It was just me and her and her husband, Ryan Adams, who is an amazing musician. I was like, ‘Hi! You can really sing!’ I felt like such an ass,” Rachel said in the interview.
As about her future plans, settling down and starting a family, the ‘Hart of Dixie’ actress confessed that, “I’ve always wanted kids – it’s sort of an obsession, but I want to do it right, where I don’t have to work. I’ve heard the stores [of people balancing acting and kids], and I know it’s possible. I don’t know if I want that, though. I’m not sure if I want to continue to work when I have kids.”
