Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are best known for starring in two super popular teen drama series, The O.C. and Gossip Girl, respectively. Though their on-screen counterparts are very different between the sarcastic and nerdy Seth Cohen and wealthy Manhattan socialite/Queen Bee Blair Waldorf, Meester and Brody ended up becoming an adorable couple in real life.
Notoriously private and low-key in their personal lives, it’s always fun when they pair up to do a project together like the underrated sitcom Single Parents and now the action-thriller film River Wild, which was added to Netflix on August 1.
A remake of the 1994 film starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon, the new iteration follows a pair of siblings embarking on a whitewater rafting adventure. But one sibling, Joey (Meester), fears danger might be brewing when her brother Gray (Taran Killam) invites their troubled childhood friend Trevor (Brody) along.
In addition to Brody and Meester, River Wild also reunites Meester with her other Single Parents co-star, Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam.
Are Leighton Meester and Adam Brody still married?
Yes, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are still married after almost ten years together! Earlier this year, Us Weekly reports that Brody stopped by the Podcrushed podcast and revealed he and Meester first met while she was out to lunch with some of her Gossip Girl co-stars in Los Angeles.
They got to know each other better in 2010 while filming the rom-com The Oranges, in which they both starred. The pair married in 2014 during a private ceremony in Northern California.
"“I was smitten instantly. And I was, you know, smitten for a long time,” he explained. “I didn’t get to know her for many years after, even though we even worked together briefly. She’s so lovely and she’s so sweet.”"
Do Leighton Meester and Adam Brody have kids?
