Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody were one of the "it" couples back in the day, especially when The O.C. aired from 2003 to 2007.

Bilson, 42, even recalled one pivotal moment in their relationship when she was "swarmed by a mass mob" of fans who wanted to meet her then-boyfriend after they taped an episode of TRL. Fortunately, some other A-listers helped her out.

Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody previously dated.

“The Olsen twins rescued me and threw me in their car,” Bilson recalled in Alan Sepinwall’s new book, Welcome to the O.C.: The Oral History, which was coauthored with The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz and executive producer Stephanie Savage. “I left Brody behind because I was so nervous and didn’t know what to do. And they were like, ‘Don’t you need to get your boyfriend?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, we’ve got to go get him.’ He was being mobbed.”

Though Seth Cohen and Summer Roberts, played by Bilson, got married in the series finale, the two didn't make it in real life and later split.

“When you’re that age, you think you’re going to be with that person forever. And I remember feeling like, I don’t want to wear something that I would ever wear for my own wedding. That feels weird," she said of not wanting to like Summer's wedding dress on purpose.
