Adam Brody Reveals What He Loves Most About Leighton Meester in Rare Comments About Her

Adam Brody is opening up about his relationship with Leighton Meester like never before in a new interview that was just released!

The 41-year-old actor is the latest guest on Anna FarisUnqualified podcast and he talked about the first time that he and Leighton met, what he initially thought about her, how they later reconnected, and what he loves the most about her.

Adam shared that he met Leighton for the first time around 15 years ago when he was eating at Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles. He said that the cast of Gossip Girl was eating there when he also happened to be there.

Josh Schwartz produced both shows and literally the first time we met, that whole cast was eating at Canter’s and I lived at Canter’s for like my entire 20s. And I was leaving, and he introduced all of us,” Adam said.

Adam and Leighton “bumped into” each other a few times in the years to follow and they eventually worked together in the 2011 movie The Oranges. He wasn’t single at the time though!

Adam said, “We did this movie together. I was seeing someone at the time… So we met kind of through mutual work friends off and on. And then we didn’t get together about a year after that movie, when I was single.”

“I was very attracted to her from the jump. She’s a heavenly creature. I thought she was gorgeous. And even when we did the movie, there was chemistry there, but I was seeing someone,” Adam said.

Adam says he had made assumptions about Leighton‘s personality, likely because of the character she played on Gossip Girl. He said, “But I had no idea whether she was a good person or not. And, in fact, kind of assumed she probably wasn’t for like the first handful of years that I didn’t know her, just because, I don’t know, Gossip Girl.”

“Not that I tagged all actresses with that or anything—I didn’t. And I like to date actors. I never believe that stigma,” he added.

Adam later learned that Leighton is actually an awesome person. He said, “And I was like, ‘Oh, she’s cool.’ But I still didn’t know, and that continued even to when we first started dating… And come to find out she’s literally like Joan of Arc. She is the strongest, best person I know. She is my moral compass and North Star, and I just can’t say enough good things about her character. It’s crazy.”

While discussing his favorite part of Leighton‘s personality, he said, “She’s never been rude to like a single person in her life, except—and I give her credit for this—paparazzi, where I’m too self-conscious. I wouldn’t say rude but like people will try to get her to sign some sexy old photo or something that aren’t fans but they pretend to be fans… It’s sort of a bottom feeding thing… She has no problem being like, ‘You can hate me. I don’t care.’”

Adam and Leighton have been married since 2014 and they have two kids – five-year-old daughter Arlo and a baby boy who they welcomed in 2020.

“Marriage and being an adult and having a family, it was a new frontier for me. Where, before that, I felt I didn’t have to change,” Adam said about being a father and a husband.
