Rachel Bilson believes she's managed to stay away from drugs and alcohol because she ''got it out of her system'' before finding fame.
Rachel Bilson has admitted she got drugs and alcohol ''out of her system'' before finding fame.
The 32-year-old actress - who shot into the limelight in 2003 after landing a role in 'The O.C' - has managed to avoid the unhealthy pressures of fame because she'd already kicked her bad habits prior to her career.
Speaking in the June issue of Health magazine, she explained: ''I grew up in Los Angeles and did all that when I was younger. I went to the clubs and did all the drugs and alcohol. I got it out of my system, so by the time I was on 'The O.C', I was like, 'Wow, I can just enjoy this'.''
The brunette beauty then began dating her co-star Adam Brody for three years, before they split up in 2006, but she believes their relationship stopped her from partying.
She added: ''Then I started dating a co-star, so it was more of a domesticated thing; you're just home or with friends--and not out to party.''
Rachel is now looking to settle down and start a family with her boyfriend Hayden Christensen, whom she has been dating for seven years, as she believes she and her beau would make excellent parents.
She said: ''To start a family would be good, any year in the next few years. I've always wanted to be a mom. I have always wanted kids. I can just see this little toddler waddling around the house.''
Speaking of Hayden, she added: ''He's so incredibly supportive and considerate. It's so basic--that should be there. Because these things are so much more important when you're older. I've been in my relationship for seven years, so we've grown up together in a way.''
