Rachel Bilson apologizes to Tate Donovan for The O.C. cast's young stars being "little a**holes" on set

Donovan was Bilson and Melinda Clarke's guest this week on their podcast Welcome to the O.C., Bitches! podcast. After Donovan admitted that he was an "a**hole" early in his career when, believing he had graduated to film actor, he turned down Tom Selleck's offer for a guest spot on Magnum P.I. "That brings something pretty poignant for me," Bilson told Donovan, according to TooFab. "You went on to direct us on The O.C. … and I know some of us kids were little a**holes and I think that that speaks to that whole unaware, young, youthful, ignorant, like, just idiots. I hope I wasn't as bad as it's come off. I hope I wasn't. You know, you get influenced, I'd say, by your surroundings. Let's put it that way."
