adam brody leighton meester dating rumor gi Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are dating?In a move guaranteed to target the very souls of teen drama fans, Leighton Meester of “Gossip Girl” and Adam Brody of “The O.C.” are dating, according to reports.

The secret romance is only a few weeks old, according to a source quoted in US Weekly, even though the two have been friends since 2011. Meester and Brody met while co-starring in the Catherine Keener/Hugh Laurie dramedy, “The Oranges.”

While the two were merely “close and friendly” during the shoot, they did spend time together as friends even then. The romantic relationship only came later. Since the beginning of 2013, however, the couple reportedly vacationed in Bangkok together and were then spotted on Friday (Feb. 1) at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Although Brody and Meester are known for playing teenagers — Brody as the nerdy Seth Cohen on “The O.C.” and Meester as the conniving Blair Waldorf on “Gossip Girl” — both are very much adults. Believe it or not, Adam Brody is already 33 years old, while Meester is a young 26. Thus, they can probably make good decisions on dating at this point.
