Rachel Bilson on Hayden Christensen, The O.C. and Starting a Family

05/14/2014 at 02:45 PM EDT

It’s been a decade since The O.C. became a pop-culture sensation, but Rachel Bilson hasn’t changed a bit.

Bilson, 32, jokes about her age-defying appearance in the June issue of Health, on newsstands May 16.

“I’ve always looked young because I’m so short, and especially if I’m dressed down,” she tells the magazine. “When I have a baby, everyone’s going to be like, ‘Awww, poor teen mom. Poor girl.’ And Teen Mom is my favorite show. … I know, pathetic. But it’s true.”

Becoming a mother may not be too far away for the Hart of Dixie star, who says starting a family within the next few years something she’d like to do: “I can just see this little toddler waddling around the house.”

Bilson has dated Hayden Christensen, 33, for seven years, and she says they have “grown up together in a way.”

“He’s so incredibly supportive and considerate. It’s so basic – that should be there. Because these things are so much more important when you’re older,” she explains. “This is my partner, my support, just there for me no matter what. And vice versa.”

The actress also credits her time on The O.C. with keeping her grounded – and away from the party scene that claimed other up-and-coming celebrities.

“I grew up in L.A. and did all that when I was younger. I went to the clubs and did all the drugs and alcohol,” she says. “I got it out of my system, so by the time I was on The O.C., I was like, ‘Wow, I can just enjoy this.’ Then I started dating a costar [Adam Brody], so it was more of a domesticated thing.”

Bilson is still happy to be a homebody, watching TV shows like Family Feud with friends and keeping an early bedtime.

And though she’s known for being fashion-forward, you won’t find her favorite garments on the pages of Vogue.

“I’m really into the granny nightgown, I’m just gonna say. Like, full-on long-sleeve, long nightgowns. They’re super comfortable!” she says. “They’re cozy. You just feel free. You’re like, ‘Oh! I’m in a dress. But I’m sleeping!’ I secretly wish I could be 80. If I could, I would be 80. It would be amazing.”

Lori Loughlin: ‘I Couldn’t be Happier’

LORI Loughlin says she “couldn’t be happier” working on her new show.

The former Full House actress, 49, stars in the Hallmark Chanel series When Calls the Heart.

Lori plays kindhearted Abigail Stanton, a resilient coal miner’s widow.

“It’s been a long time since Little House was on the air,” Lori explained.

“So the timing just seemed right. And Michael Landon Jr. has been so awesome to work with.”

When Calls the Heart, which premiered in January and became the cable network’s highest rated series, was inspired by Janet Oke’s 1983 novel of the same name. It tells the tale of a young schoolteacher, played by Erin Krakow, in a 19th century coal mining town in the Canadian West.

Lori says she loves working on the show, in part because it features a strong female cast.

“I find that relatable,” she said. “The timing couldn’t be better for this show since it’s good, clean family fare.

“The most difficult thing was wearing the corset…it’s a little tight, to say the least,” she admitted. “So after the first episode, I decided to ditch it.”
