Rachel Bilson is walking back her hot take that it’d be “weird” if a single man in his 40s only slept with four women after Whoopi Goldberg called her out for “bitching” about others’ sex lives.

“I want to say that I’ve been a fan of Whoopi’s for a very long time, so when I saw the tagline that she criticized something I said, I of course was concerned,” Bilson told Entertainment Weekly Thursday.

The “O.C.” star clarified she was trying to express that she had felt that way “in the past,” but she “wouldn’t do that anymore.”

“I made it clear that I don’t want to sound judgmental, it was important that that point get across, not what I said initially,” she added.

Bilson, 42, insisted the controversial comment on her “Broad Ideas” podcast was “flippant” and that she immediately “retracted it, because even talking about it now, I’m like, I don’t actually believe that.”

“We make it a very safe open place to discuss anything, and we were just talking. I have the power to edit our podcast, and I chose to keep the conversation as a whole in, because a lot of the time in life, you say something, and maybe you have a minute and you reflect on it,” she continued.

Bilson’s latest comments come hours after Goldberg, 67, slammed her for complaining about a man having only a few sexual partners despite historically being encouraged to have lots.

“I don’t understand. To me, if he’s happy with you and you’re having a good time, why are you bitching?” the “Sister Act” star said on Thursday’s episode of “The View.”

Goldberg said it was “odd” for Bilson to be “concerned” about someone’s former sexual partners to begin with, asking, “Why is it your business? It’s not your business.”

Bilson made her polarizing admission that she would feel a “little weird” if a romantic partner had not slept with a lot of women on Monday’s episode of her podcast.

“This is gonna sound so judgmental, but if a dude is in his 40s and he [has] only slept with four women,” she began, “maybe he’s been in decade-[long] relationships, totally respectable, but if he’s single in his 40s and it’s only four and he’s never been in the long-term, that’s an issue.”
