So … it is being reported EVERYWHERE today that former star of The OC Adam Brody and former star of Gossip Girl Leighton Meester are dating. Apparently, they are the hot new couple in Hollywood … at least, for today. For some reason, which I’m not entirely losing my mind over personally, everyone is dying over the fact that Adam and Leighton are together … I’m guessing it has something to do with the epic fanficness of Seth Cohen dating Blair Waldorf. LOL. Anyways, click below to learn MORE about this stunning new romance that has gripped folks all morning on the World Wide Web.
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.
Hahaha … the couple goes to a museum together and BAM! They’re suddenly embroiled in the romance of the century. I mean … don’t get me wrong, as a huge fan of pop culture and frivolity, I get why this is a good story but … folks are making way more of this story than they really need to. Without a BeyoncÃ© lip sync story to beat to death the tabloid media had to come up with something to focus on this week … and I guess this is it.
PERSONALLY, I don’t get all the fuss. Adam and Leighton may be happily together now, hanging out at museums or whatever but everyone with half a brain knows that lasting and eternal world peace coupled with the end of all hunger and poverty in our existence will only come when Adam Brody gets back together with Rachel Bilson so … duh.
