Everyone’s got a vice that they just can’t quit, and for Rachel Bilson, that vice is Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
Now, that doesn’t sound too bad, does it? Especially given the fact that the “Hart of Dixie” star was really young when she became famous for starring on “The O.C.” and could have fallen victim to all the temptations Hollywood offers its young stars. But according to Bilson’s cover story for the June 2014 issue of Health Magazine, her Flamin’ Hot Cheetos addiction got to a pretty bad place.
“My unhealthiest is when I binge on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, because it happens. I binge. I can admit it,” Bilson tells Health. “I’ve actually gotten better this year. It got to a point where I was eating them so much that, like, you poop red every day! You’re like, ‘Okay, I don’t know what’s going through my body, but I probably should stop. There are problems.'”
Bilson also reveals the reason she was able to avoid the dark side of Hollywood is because she dabbled in all that before she got famous.
“I grew up in L.A. and did all that when I was younger,” Bilson says. “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.’ 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.”
“I’ve been in my relationship for seven years, so we’ve grown up together in a way. This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what and vice versa,” Bilson says. “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.”
