Adam Brody Talks About Surfing with Wife Leighton Meester, Plus the Twitter Time Limit She Gave Him

Adam Brody and his wife Leighton Meester have been spotted surfing many times throughout 2020 and he’s opening up about their quarantine hobby!

The 41-year-old The O.C. actor chatted with WSJ. Magazine for a new feature this week.

Adam was asked how he steers himself back on course for the rest of the week when he has a bad Monday.

“Ideally attack the problem, but it just depends on what the problem is. That said, a big part of our quarantine life is that my wife and I have been surfing our brains out,” Adam said.

He continued, “My wife will come down with our son half an hour, 45 minutes after I’m up and join the party and we will check the surf on our phones. I’ve been off and on a lifetime surfer. My wife’s relatively new to it but is very dedicated. She is going surfing right now.”

Adam was also asked about other quarantine hobbies. He said, “Go Fish was big for a while. We’ve stepped it up to Monopoly Junior. A little piano, a little karaoke. [Our daughter] has flirted with wanting to learn to ride a bike without training wheels and then kind of backs away when it gets real. And then a lot of walks through the neighborhood. And a lot of role-playing, me in particular with my daughter. The books we read change too, and that’s fun. Other new hobbies? Honestly, we’re just beach bums.”

Adam says that Leighton placed him on a 30-minute time limit for Twitter amid the election season.

“I was on Twitter so much up until the election and I enjoy it, I really do, but it’s very addicting,” he said. “I found myself, as most people, just so pissed off for most of this year and was really happy for about 48 hours after the election and then 48 hours after [that], I was so pissed again. So my wife put a 30-minute time limit on Twitter and my life has changed. I don’t know if I could have concentrated on anything else pre-election anyway, but post-election, I was like, I don’t f—ing need to know what Ted Cruz just said. I can’t let that infuriate me 24 hours a day. [So] I’m back to reading books and I felt my blood pressure lower instantly—I feel a new sense of calm and accomplishment.”

Adam also talked about whether he and Leighton will be watching the upcoming Gossip Girl extension series, which will premiere on HBO Max in 2021.
