'I'm baffled!' Rachel Bilson shocked after losing job over sex comments
Rachel Bilson lost a job after speaking out about her sex life.
The 41-year-old actress - who has eight-year-old Briar with ex-partner Hayden Christensen - claimed earlier this week that she liked to be "f****** manhandled" in the bedroom but was left shocked when the comments cost her a job that she had already been contracted to do.
Speaking on the 'Broad Ideas' podcast, she said: "This is the first time it's ever happened to me in my professional life that I lost a job this week because of things that were said. A job got taken away from me because I was speaking candidly and openly about sex in a humorous way on our friend's podcast. I basically got a job, that I already had, pulled from me because I was speaking openly about sex. A single mom, a woman, lost a job because they were being candid and honest and the subject was sex."
The 'Hart of Dixie' star went on to claim that she made the comments as a "joke" but was still left "floored" after she lost her job and although she would perhaps word things "differently" if she could go back, insisted that she would not have refrained from making the raunchy comments in the first place.
She said: "First of all, I said it in a joking manner in the interview, like, 'Yeah, I wanna get f****** get manhandled.' Basically, it's like, okay give control or take control in the bedroom, whatever. I've been floored honestly. I haven't said anything inappropriate. Choice of language, if I could go back, now knowing I lost a job, maybe I would say it differently. But I still wouldn't not say it."
