Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are dating: super cute couple?

I don’t know why this pairing makes me so happy. Probably because I was a big fan of The OC and I have a lot of affection for Adam Brody. If he can’t be with Rachel Bilson in real life, at least he can be with another gorgeous brunette whom I like. He’s with Leighton Meester! Leighton, the other Gossip Girl star who could have easily chased after fame, but who just seems content to play the game as needed but otherwise remain low-key. She’s always struck me as very likable, normal and mature for her years, and now she’s with Adam Brody! Here’s more:

It’s like a teenage dream come true! Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, both veterans of the teen drama genre, have been secretly dating for weeks, sources confirm to Us Weekly.

The actors, who costarred in 2011 dramedy The Oranges alongside Catherine Keener and Hugh Laurie, have been “hanging out,” the source tells Us.

“They were always close and friendly,” the insider added, noting that the pair would hang out on occasion during shooting for the film.

Brody, 33, first landed in the spotlight as lovable comic book geek Seth Cohen on the WB’s hit The O.C. back in the early 2000s. He was most recently linked to director Lorene Scafaria, who wrote
Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, back in 2010.

Gossip Girl actress Meester, meanwhile, previously dated actor Aaron Himelstein, though the 26-year-old parted ways with him over the holidays.

And even though she and Brody have been keeping their relationship out of the public eye, the new couple has already been making their rounds, traveling together to Bangkok earlier this year and taking in art exhibits at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Friday, Feb. 1.

[From US Weekly]

Sometimes I check out couples in my daily life, and I get kind of warm and fuzzy inside when they dress matchy or when you can see how alike they look. There’s a sympatico thing going on when you look at their faces and they could be brother and sister. I know that sounds weird, but look at Leighton and Adam in the photo on US Weekly’s site. They’re making the same expression and they look like they could be related! I think that’s sweet and not creepy, it’s hard to explain. Anyway I hope this lasts for them. I doubt either of their publicists leaked the news to US Weekly, either.

    aww, they’re cute together. (although, I’m not a fan of her with short hair)

  2. TQB says:

    Meh on him. I love Leighton and suffered through the last 2 seasons of GG just for her. Wish we saw more of her onscreen but like you said, she’s not the famewhore that her costars are.

    • GoodCapon says:

      Yup, and she is actually the most talented out of all of them!

      They’re a cute couple, she looks really good here!

    • Rux says:

      The only reason I watched GG was solely for Blair and her banter with Darota! Anyway, Love this pairing.

    • mercy says:

      She’s gone to more events and done more adverts than her co-stars. She’s been in more bad mainstream movies than them. She used to be photographed as much or more than any of them. She’s dated other actors and co-stars. Her publicist definitely knows her way around the tabloids. The media’s interest in her peaked around 2009-10 and she decided to focus on her music so people forget, but it happened. So what? They’re young, in a public profession, and taking the opportunities afforded to them.

      Leighton and Adam make a really cute couple. I liked her with Sebastian Stan, too.

      • backwards says:

        I totally forgot about Sebastian Stan! They were cute together…wonder what happened to him!

      • Melissa says:

        Ah Sebastian Stan. Absolutely adore him. Apparently he’s dating Jennifer Morrison, one of the actresses on Once Upon A Time. I’m not surprised since there was a lot of chemistry between them on the show.

    • Janey says:

      Adam is a wonderful, beautiful fish! Don’t even. Leighton seems like a good actress, but I haven’t anything else to say about her.

  3. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    Super cute!

  4. Marni says:

    I’v been in love with him since the oc.
    I don’t really watch Gossip Girl but i’ve seen her in that Country movie with Goop, she was adorable and had hot chemistry with Garrett Hedlund. I approve of her for my man.

  5. Riana says:

    Super duper duper cute, I heartily approve 🙂

  6. GeeMoney says:

    Love Leighton Meester… Adam Brody is just ‘eh’ to me. But good for them.

  7. MyLeNe - Montreal says:

    Cute ! Love Them !

  8. brin says:

    Love! They look good together, hope it works!

  9. Laura says:

    She’s basically a less cute version of Rachel Bilson aka his soulmate 4EVER

  10. dee says:

    Gosh, she’s so pretty. Him not so much.

  11. Talie says:

    I wish her the best. Everyone knows she had the talent on GG and always got the shaft for Blake.

    • mercy says:

      It’s a shame she was stuck on Gossip Girl for six years, but that wasn’t Blake’s fault. If there were any good lines to be had, Blair got most of them. They made her character the center of the show. Ratings continued to go down.

  12. Miss Kiki says:

    Love this, Seth Cohen is still one of my tv boyfriends. I really like Leighton too, all in all I’m happy with this pairing. As you were.

  13. Dani says:

    Scary resemblances between Leighton and Rachel but I looooove Adam Brody so yay.

  14. judyjudy says:

    They do make a good looking couple.
    I love saying Leighton Meester. It’s a catchy name

  15. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Um seriously..this is THE best couple news I have read in a long time!! Seth and Blair! Yay..right up there when Seth and Summer (Rachel Bilson) dated..and almost as great as Allie and Noah from the Notebook dating IRL…Perfection. I def sign off on this couple 🙂 haha..ok calming down now

  16. meestermonster says:

    Love love Leighton, she was the best thing about GG and I suffered through the last 3 seasons for her. And Seth Cohen meant everything to me when I was young. And if it can’t be Rachel Bilson than I am so happy its Leighton. They would make the cutest family. I really hope they work and I think he’s hipster enough to keep her entertained 🙂

  17. Relli says:

    You say Seth, I say Dave Rygalksi!

    This is very cute, I love Leighton and Adam!

    • AH says:

      I was so sad when Dave rygalski never returned ;( he was so much nicer than Seth – and I love Seth!

  18. littlestar says:

    I’ve always loved him since the OC. He was really good in that movie “In the Land of Women” or whatever it was called, even though the movie itself was just okay. And damn, he is aging really well!!!

  19. jess says:

    I’ve heard that people who date people who look like them are narcissistic…I hope that isn’t true about Adam Brody!!

  20. Vivian says:

    Don’t know much about Adam but his recent photos from Sundance looks great; he’s much better looking right now than these photos. Leighton is the only reason I watch GG; she’s talented and I hope she has a long and steady career.

  21. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Gah! I’m embarrassed at how excited I am about this coupling. I blame my unhealthy obsession with teen dramas 🙁

    They’re adorable. I’ve had a crush on Adam Brody since The OC days…

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Dude I think the tone of the article and the comments shows that we’re all equally as lame!

      I’ve actually had to start weening myself off cw dramas it was getting ridiculous.


  23. valleymiss says:

    Seth + Summer 4eva!

    Seriously, this is a cute pairing. I will always love Adam Brody, and was a sick, addicted OC fan (that tv show was my DRUG lol). I’ve only watched about 10 minutes of Gossip Girl, but I did rent Country Strong (for the sole purpose of making fun of Goopy). Leighton was very likable – my favorite person in the movie. The storyline between her and Garrett Hedlund…yowza. I think I also have affection for Leighton because she looks a lot like my best friend.

    Anyway, go on Seth Cohen!

  24. Launicaangelina says:

    Adam Brody was in Jennifer’s Body and was so hot. He had the eyeliner rocker thing happening and it suited him just fine. Yum!

  25. Brittney says:

    Aww, they are adorable together… and I’ve loved Adam since Now What, so it was awesome to see him on the site today.

    I’m also glad you said that about the brother/sister thing, because my boyfriend and I have been mistaken for siblings MANY times, and it always kind of made me feel weird. I guess I should look at it as a good thing.

  26. Ms Kay says:

    Aww how cute! Love me some dimples ^^

    Wait…. Didn’t Rachel Bilson star in the very last episode of GG with K. Bell and she was like playing Blair or…?

  27. mac says:

    She is my girl crush. I love her and she was the best part of Gossip Girl. And I adore Adam Brody. This makes me unreasonably happy. Their new movie with House looks good too!

  28. Shelley says:

    They, and Rachel Bilson, were both by far the best things about both shows. Talented – not their fault Hollywood seems to have few decent writers any more.

  29. Sc says:

    I am glad to see I am not the only one feeling out over this pairing. Love it!!

  30. Lauren says:

    I am happy for them. I too always wished Adam could have worked things out with Rachel and I thought Sebastian Stan and Leighton were also perfect but they too didn’t work out. This pairing is lovely.

  31. serena says:

    I think they’re cute too..but doesn’t she look a bit too much like Rachel Bilson?

  32. Janey says:

    I liked Adam and Lorene. This pairing doesn’t do much for me so I hope it does something for them.
