Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are from such similarly so-bad-they’re-actually-good shows (The OC and Gossip Girl, respectively) that I could barely remember who was from which or if they were actually on the same show or whatever. Then I realized I don’t really care. What I do know, however, is that they came together on the 2011 “dramedy” (awful genre name, guys!) The Oranges, where they fell in looooove… or at least started doing it.
From US Weekly:
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.
Now, anyone born past, uh, YESTERDAY know that “hanging out” means sexin’ it from here ’til Sunday. The problem is, I don’t think I’ve ever cared less about a new Hollywood couple than I do these two. Granted, Gossip Girl is still in my Netflix queue and maybe I’ll eventually watch it one day (though probably not), but I dunno, man. I’d be more excited if one of them decided to date a tree or their vacuum cleaner or something. Remember how Leighton Meester used to date Justin Long? Remember how little you cared about that, too?
Whatever, young love, happy days!

Adam Brody recently did an interview with writer Diablo Cody and she asked him what he thought about celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, who seem put off by the fame that comes with their job.
At the time Adam offered a pretty candid response saying, “It’s only gotten worse, I’m sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do… It’s like, quit… you don’t need to be an actor, so it’s like, if it’s that much of a problem… there’s the door.”
After seeing the interview and being asked follow up questions by MTV News, Adam basically retracted his statement, “It wasn’t taken out of context. I saw (the interview) and thought I sounded like an idiot. I did. Regardless of how anyone else took anything, I would think that sounds very ungentlemanly and I sounded like a jacka**.”
I’d never knock a dude for trying to do the gentlemanly thing, but there would have been a way to reiterate his statement without What he initially said, although not especially articulate, was not inaccurate. Working in Hollywood requires a certain willingness to play along with fame. Hollywood is not a small art community that deeply gives a shit about your performance. It’s a business, and you don’t make money by being a nobody. Nothing ungentlemanly in being smart about your business.

So Diablo Cody has a new web show, and for her first episode, she interviewed Adam Brody. They talked about a variety of topics in a quirky, sarcastic way, but one of the more interesting parts is around the 5:50 mark when she asks Adam if he enjoys fame or if he wishes he could separate acting from the fame, “ala Kristen Stewart.” Here’s what he said:
“It’s only gotten worse, I’m sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do. It’s like, quit, fuckin’ quit … you don’t need to be an actor, so it’s like if it’s that much of a problem … there’s the door.”
Snap! And you know Adam was in a movie with Kristen a few years ago, In the Land of Women, so it’s not like he doesn’t know her. I hope she keeps up with him so she can finally realize that she can, in fact, fuckin’ quit. Let’s be real though, she’s too busy smoking weed and pissing off the world and being way too undeservedly successful to watch YouTube.

I know we’ve been following the “Mischa Barton + Keds = True Love” story pretty hard so here’s the latest breaking news.
In this picture I believe she is wearing normal (acceptable) footwear. I could be off the mark here, as I don’t really know the whole Keds line. If I’m wrong I’ll take a comment ding. But if I’m right I want it known that I nailed her first.
Put your Keds back on! And eat something.
Next up, Adam Brody, Elisha Cuthbert, and Amber Tamblyn. These guys all look hot in their own little way, no? Brody is rocking a full fledged adult male thing and somehow the slightly stoned vibe makes Elisha work for me. Plus I’m a sucker for redheads (Amber Tamblyn).
It should be noted that all these, again, are from the Coachella event. The fact checker (whom I’m on the phone with now) tells me that this event is in Indio, California and features music acts. There seems to be a charity angle as well. So all you guys near Indio (home of the Indio High Rajahs) hustle on down to see both music and Scarlett’s cow legs.

I’m not usually that into him, but he looks really good here. Less boy-like, I think. He’s growing up nicely.

The OC‘s Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody decide to call it quits. In real life, not on the show. Are they still on that show? Do I really care? No. [Tabloid Whore]
Eddie Murphy reportedly announces to a Dutch television show that he’s no longer dating Mel B. (aka Scary Spice) and now questions the paternity of her child. His rep says these reports are false. Maybe Eddie needs to take a tip from Gwyneth Paltrow and brush up on his foreign-language skills. [TMZ]
Um…related? Eddie Murphy is dating film producer and Babyface ex Tracey Edmonds. [Bossip]
I’m Not Obsessed has a good index of YouTube clips from the VH1 Big in 06 Awards. [I'm Not Obsessed]
George Clooney’s pet pig dies. Perhaps this will send him into a drunken emotional tailspin, hitting up Hyde every night with new BFF Stavros Niarchos, culminating in a glorious George Clooney crotch shot. Is that too much to ask?? [Junkiness]
I love Jennifer Garner. After her weight gain kicked off rumors of another pregnancy, she decides to just fess up: “Nobodyâ€™s pregnant. I am as physically unfit as Iâ€™ve probably been in my whole life.” [Pop on the Pop]
Oh good. Tori Spelling’s writing a memoir. People notes that the opus will “likely be done with the help of a ghostwriter.” I would, honestly, be much more interested in the stunning work of literature that Tori Spelling would surely produce if left entirely to her own devices. [People]
Two Beckhams for the price of one Courtney Love? You’ve got yourselves a deal, England! [popbytes]
