Rachel Bilson scolded by Rami Malek for posting an outdated photograph of them in High School
File this below: area of interest and weird Hollywood drama. The actors Rachel Bilson and Rami Malek are in a bizarre form of feud as a result of Bilson posted an outdated photograph of the Oscar winner from when he was in highschool and apparently, he didn’t like that and demanded she take the photograph down.
Back in January 2019, Bilson — who went to highschool with Malek in Los Angeles — posted a #TBT photograph of the 2 after they have been youngsters and college buddies. Bilson posted it just a few days earlier than his Oscar win and jokingly hashtagged it “don’t forget the little people.” Shortly after posting it, the photograph disappeared from her Instagram grid, Malek went on to win an Oscar for Bohemian Rhapsody and no person thought in regards to the photograph once more.
Then, this week, the previous The O.C. star revealed to Dax Shepard throughout an episode of his podcast, “Armchair Expert,” that Malek DM’d Bilson and requested her to take down the photograph.
No pleasantries, no nothing, simply “delete that.”
“Rami was a good friend of mine,” Bilson informed Shepard. “We were [in] the same crew. We did ‘The Crucible’ together senior year, we were the leads in it together — all these things.”
“Obviously, he gets super famous and he’s always been extremely talented…even in high school. I had posted a throwback of us from our senior trip to New York. We’re super nerdy…just the dorkiest picture of the both of us. But I throw it up, ’cause it’s funny and I think it’s so important to be able to make fun of yourself,” Bilson stated.
Bilson stated Malek messaged her after seeing the photograph and he or she stated that he didn’t lead with “like, ‘Hey! How are you?!’” however as a substitute, “It was straight to: ‘I would really appreciate if you take that down. I’m a really private person.’”
Bilson deleted the photograph as Malek requested, (although retailers like People nonetheless have a duplicate on-line when you’d prefer to see), and I don’t see what the issue is. Malek is rocking spiky hair, a gold chain, and corduroy — All I see is 2 theater dorks in full ’90s glory. The solely cause I can see for Malek wanting the photograph eliminated is as a result of this ’90s bro doesn’t actually go together with his present aesthetic of “hipster artist.” I suppose Malek has a picture to keep up, however like…pretending you by no means existed as a teen?? Weird flex, however okay????
Bilson stated she acquired actually nervous when Malek despatched her that DM, however she deleted it and even wrote him again to apologize, however Malek didn’t reply.
“I removed it, and I even wrote to him a really nice message like, ‘I’m so sorry! Go get the Oscar! You’re doing amazing.’ And I never heard anything back, which is fine,” she stated. “I was super bummed because he was so nice, and we were good friends. I’m a big fan of not taking yourself seriously, especially at that level of fame and talent. But look, he wants to be super respected. It’s his thing, so I respected it. I took it down. I was just a little bummed at how it was handled.”
