There is an update in the photo saga removed by Rachel Bilson at the request of Rami Malek! In fact, the actress said that her colleague contacted her and so they clarified.
But let’s take a step back to recap what had happened: last March, Rachel Bilson revealed that she was a little sick when Rami Malek wrote to her asking her to remove an old photo of them from Instagram.
She had posted it in January 2019, when the star was in full success Bohemian Rhapsody and soon she would win the Oscar, to congratulate herself and to let it be known that they had attended the same school: the photo dates back precisely to the days when they were companions in high school.
“ Rami was a good friend of mine. (…) I posted a throwback photo of us from the school trip to New York. We were nerds, it’s the most loser photo of both. But I published it because it’s funny and I think it’s important to be able to make fun of yourself” said the protagonist of The O.C. in the Armchair Expert podcast.
But, after having shared it, he had received a message in the DM: “It was fromRami. She went straight to: ‘I’d really appreciate it if I took it off. I’m a very private person.’ I started sweating, thinking nervously, ‘What have I done?’. He was a really good friend and it’s a funny photo.”
The account of how Rami Malek had asked her to remove the photo had gone viral and now Rachel Bilson has explained that they felt to discuss it.
“ Rami and I have been talking about this since that story came out. He contacted me and now we are fine. He was so sweet, now we’re fine, we talked about it” he told LadyGang.
“He was so full of grace and I fully understood where that request came from and he understood me. I am so glad that we have been able to clarify and move forward. He knew I hadn’t done it with the wrong intentions.”
