Washington: Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen have officially called off their engagement, it has emerged.

Reports surfaced a couple months ago that the duo were on a break, but now the split is permanent.

"Yes, the engagement is off," People quoted Bilson`s rep as saying.

But Bilson`s rep declined to provide details on the break-up.

Distance was reportedly one of the main reasons for the split.

With Bilson primarily in L.A., and Christensen in Canada, "It just wasn`t working out," says a pal of the actress.

Now Bilson is "focusing on her career, spending time with her family and just moving forward," a friend added.

Christensen, 29, and Bilson, 28, met on the set of ‘Jumper’ in 2007, and got engaged in December of the following year.
