Good news, 2021’s most awkward celebrity story has a happy ending: Rachel Bilson and Rami Malek are totally chill again. In case you missed this truly cringe moment, Rachel told Dax Shepard that Rami reached out and asked her to delete a glorious throwback photo of them in high school. As Rachel put it, she was “just a little bummed at how it was handled.”

The actress went on to explain that Rami fully DM’d her and told her to remove the photo, saying, “It wasn’t like, ‘Hey! How are you?!’ It was straight to, ‘I would really appreciate if you take that down. I’m a really private person.’…I was like, ‘Oh, shit! Okay.’”

Apparently, Rachel then wrote Rami a “really nice” message apologizing and “never [heard] anything back,” which sucks! But yeah, the situation is better now and Rami ended up reaching out.

Rachel confirmed their chat on an episode of the LadyGang podcast (via Entertainment Tonight), saying, “Rami and I have actually talked. Since that came out, he connected with me and we’re all good. He was so sweet and we’re totally fine now, and we talked about it and we’re good.”

Apparently, the whole incident caused her some stress though:

“I was so mortified though. I was having a panic attack; I had to go to therapy that day and I was like, ‘I’m having anxiety. I did not want this to resurface in this way. I feel so bad. Oh my god, Rami is going to think I’m doing this again and everything….’ But it actually turned out to be a good thing for reasons. We were able to reconnect and make it better and everything’s great. He was so gracious and I totally understood where he was coming from and he understood me and I was just so happy we were able to squash it and move on. I get it and I totally understood. And he knew I wasn’t doing it with any ill intentions.”

Coooooool, but kinda want her to repost the pic…just saying.
