GUYS GUYS GUYS all of our teen romance dreams have come true! In a crossover fanfic dream turned reality, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are reportedly dating (according to US Weekly). The couple met on the set of their 2001 comedy The Oranges, where sources say the pair were often hanging out and getting to know each other.
But that’s not their only connection! As we all can remember, Adam Brody skyrocketed to fame playing the lovably quirky Seth Cohen on Josh Schwartz‘s teen drama The O.C. While Leighton found her big break in wearing the impeccable headbands of Blair Waldorf on Schwartz’s CW show Gossip Girl. We’re so happy to see these two are keeping it in the TV family!
This is not the first time either of these two cuties have dated a costar or a veteran of a Schwartz headed show. Way back in 2004, Adam and his onscreen love interest Rachel Bilson were engaged off screen. Leighton on the other hand chose to date outside of her show’s main cast and instead went for one of Gossip Girl’s many villains by dating Sebastian Stan who played Carter Baizon. Of her break up from Stan, Leighton commented:
“I was really sad when it ended, but that’s what taught me a lot about myself and love and life – and that’s good.”
Hopefully she can take what she’s learned and put it to good use with Adam!
Now that both Adam and Leighton both have their teen drama behind them (RIP GOSSIP GIRL) these two can officially move on to more adult behavior. The brand new couple has already been spotted traveling together to Bangkok, and taking in the local art scene in LA. Though they have yet to publicly announce their romance, sources close to the pair ensure US that the two are definitely an item.
