Big news, you guys. It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Leighton Meester and Adam Brody. The last time was over a year ago, when they got married. But life seems to be progressing just fine, since it was announced on Monday that Leighton is pregnant and the couple are expecting their first child together!
Incidentally, Leighton gets a lot of respect from me, since she didn’t give a standard “over the moon” speech to announce her forthcoming motherhood, but instead, we only found out because she was out and about in LA and was photographed with a clear baby belly, as you can see above.
I don’t know too much about Leighton or Adam, but they seem to keep it low key, which makes them a-okay in my book. Congrats to the happy couple!
Dig up that crossover AU fanfic you wrote in 2006, because it just came true! The OC‘s Adam Brody and Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester have tied the knot in a secret ceremony and now all of your teen fantasies have sprung to life. I mean, we did know it was coming – the pair went public with their relationship this time last year and announced their engagement in November – but still! Excitement! (Or something…)
I never watched either of those shows, so I don’t have much of a connection (or any) to either of those stars, but I do know that people were going crazy for this shit on Tumblr. I’ll tell you what I’m going crazy for right now: House of Cards! I actually started the first season last night and watched five episodes in a row. Now that’s some good TV. But I digress…
Gossip Girl would have a field day with this one! Less than three months after news of their engagement went public, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody have married in a super-secret wedding, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.
Whoa! Cool “exclusive”, US Weekly! That really told us a lot! No further details are known on the ceremony, like, where it took place and when, who was there, what kind of cake they had, etc. I suppose that’s what US was getting at with the whole “super secret” thing.
I dunno, guys – this one might actually last. Neither of them are really too much in the public eye these days and they’re low key enough to stay out of the tabloids. Do you think this is true love or is it another ill-fated union?
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.
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?
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.
