It is the end of the road for young Hollywood pair Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen, who have officially ended their engagement.
Reports circulating in recent months alleged that the pair were on a break, but the split has now been confirmed as permanent.
Friends of Rachel, famed for her role as Summer Roberts in The O.C., blame their separation on distance.
Rachel, 28, is currently in LA and Hayden, 29 is in his native Canada.
"It just wasn't working out,' the acquaintance said. She added that the actress is now "focusing on her career, spending time with her family and just moving forward".
Rachel met Star Wars protagonist Hayden on the set of Jumper in 2007. They got engaged in December 2008.
