If Adam Brody and Leighton Meester form one of the most adorable couples in Hollywood, the underside of their relationship remains particularly nebulous. Very discreet about their private life, the two actors rarely evoke their daily family life around their two children, respectively born in 2015 and 2020. Once is not customary, Adam Brody ended up revealing himself. Guest of the Unqualified podcast hosted by Anna Faris, the Newport Beach star spoke about meeting the Gossip Girl actress, how he got to know her and what he cherishes most about her.
He first revealed that he met Meester around 2006, while dining at Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles. At the time, the interpreter of Blair Waldorf shared his table with the cast of Gossip Girl. “Josh Schwartz was producing both series (Gossip Girl and Newport Beach, editor’s note) and the first time we met, his whole team was having dinner at Canter’s, and I myself spent most of my time there- low in my twenties. And as I was leaving, he introduced us all, “the actor recalls. However, it wasn’t until five years later, on the set of The Oranges, that Adam and Leighton really became interested in each other. “We made this film together. But I was in a relationship at the time … So we dated thanks to mutual friends, and we only got together a year after the film, when I ‘was single,’ he explains. “I was immediately very drawn to her. She is a divine creature. I thought to myself that she was beautiful. And even when we were making the film, there was chemistry, but I didn’t was not available. “
Adam Brody: “I assumed for a long time that she was not a beautiful person”
But if the actor admits to having immediately been won over by the physique of the actress, he did not have the same certainties as to his personality. On screen, Leighton Meester played Blair Waldorf, a stubborn heiress with an oversized ego. Brody therefore admits having had doubts in connection with this role. “I didn’t know if she was a beautiful person or not. And in fact, I assumed for a long time that she wasn’t when I didn’t know her, just because, I don’t know, Gossip Girl “, he admits. But dating the actress, Brody was finally surprised, “I was like, ‘Oh, she’s cool.’ But I wasn’t sure, and it continued even when we started dating … And I ended up realizing that she is literally like Jean d’Arc. She is the strongest and best person I know. She is my Star of the Shepherd and my compass, I cannot say enough of beautiful things about her. It’s crazy. “
Very much in love, the 41-year-old actor says he is seduced by the strong personality of his companion. “She’s never been obnoxious to anyone except, and I respect him, the paparazzi. I wouldn’t say obnoxious but some people sometimes try to get her to sign sexy old photos by pretending to be fans … so they make ends meet with it. At times like these, she has no problem saying ‘You can hate me. I don’t care.’ “. In 2015, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester became parents to little Arlo. They then had a son in 2020, whose first name has not been revealed.
