This entire week we’re focusing on the girls of New York, I Love You, an anthology of filmic love letters to NYC, which opens this Friday. Our first girl is Rachel Bilson, who holds a special, warm, pillow-topped place in my otherwise jaded heart. If only she wasn’t engaged to Anakin Skywalker we could run away together and live happily ever after on a tropical island, relying simply on coconut milk and intense passion as sustenance. I’d even forgive her for starring in Jumper, and that takes a ton of will power on my part. I mean, did you even see that movie, Rachel? Not even Sam Jackson’s platinum blond hair could save it.
A word from Rachel: “It’s great playing someone who is not like me at all. I’m really a nice girl, so it’s fun to be a bitch, then come home and be myself again.”
