During the latest episode of her Welcome to the O.C. Bitches podcast, the 39-year-old actress and her co-host Melinda Clarke – who also appeared on The O.C., chatted with their former co-star Tate Donovan.
In season three of The O.C., Tate directed an episode, and years later, admitted that it was “tough” directing the young cast.
“They just didn’t want to be doing the show anymore,” Tate shared with Vulture in 2013. “It was pretty tough; they were very tough to work with…But you know how it is with young actors — and I know because I was one of them once. When you achieve a certain amount of success, you want to be doing something else.”
During the podcast, Rachel apologized to Tate for her and the other cast members being “little a–holes.”
“I hope I wasn’t as bad as it’s come off. I hope I wasn’t — because I really, you know, you get influenced, I’d say, by your surroundings,” Rachel said.
She also added that Tate was “such a wonderful director and amazing human and all of it.” “So if I ever added to any of the a–hole-ness, I want to apologize on record.”
Tate accepted Rachel‘s apology, saying that she was a “total sweetheart” back then.
