Rachel Bilson thinks it’s hilarious people ask her for medical advice because she plays a TV doctor.
The 32-year-old actress stars as protagonist Dr. Zoe Hart in TV dramedy Hart of Dixie and she’s always amused when fans and friends take her role a little too seriously.
“People ask me for medical advice sometimes, which is always interesting. They’re like, ‘Hey, well you play a doctor!’ Even if they’re joking they kind of think I might know something because I have to pretend to do it,” she told E! News.
Rachel admits she does have a good time acting like she knows what she’s talking about. She says often times people give her more academic credit than she deserves and sometimes she even fools herself.
“It’s pretty fun to pretend to be a doctor, because then you think you know what you’re talking about and you throw out these really big words that are medical terms that you really don’t know what you’re saying – but you sound very impressive!” she laughed.
There is one skill, however, Rachel has learned to master. The star can now stitch a wound, although she wouldn’t volunteer herself to perform the procedure.
“I learned to suture which is my biggest accomplishment,” Rachel shared, adding, “Although I’ll probably forget and it will be horrifying.”
