EXCLUSIVE: Leighton Meester and Adam Brody Admit They 'Laugh' That Blair Waldorf Married Seth Cohen!
Fellow fans of The O.C. and Gossip Girl, prepare your hearts before you watch the video above because Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are truly a teenage dream of a couple – and charitable do-gooders, too!
ET caught up with the pair exclusively on Tuesday at Para Los Niños Charter School in Los Angeles, where they were serving lunches to children through Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization.
And since it was their first time appearing in an interview together since tying the knot in 2014, we just had to ask if they’ve ever shared a laugh over the fact that two of television’s most beloved teen characters, Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen, ended up together IRL.
“Occasionally,” Brody, 37, admitted. “Once a year, randomly, on our Seth and Blair day,” he joked. “It’s good for a laugh.”
Meester, 31, agreed they’ve laughed about it on occasion but noted that’s more so because of the fans' interest in them.
“It doesn't excite us, I think, because we're just human beings... but it's exciting to us that it's exciting to you,” she said. “It’s cool.”
Sadly, they also revealed they didn’t actually watch each other’s shows.
“I mean, lending our name or face certainly brings some level of more awareness, but we also need to know what we're talking about. I wanted to be hands-on and I want to be educated and, again, forge a connection,” Brody said.
The former O.C. star says it’s both fulfilling and nerve-wracking to work with these kids.
“It's weird, but I actually get a little nervous that they're not going to like me. Well, they're just like, 'I don't care, I'm eating lunch. Who's this jerk?' You know, and so the fact that they engage and seem to have a good time, that's wonderful. I wasn't prepared,” he added.
“It’s really nice to get to see them one on one and actually have contact with them and see the difference that you're hopefully making, and to be able to play. They're so much fun. And they're so smart, and cool and awesome," Meester noted.
The couple was joined by Saved by the Bell alum Tiffani Thiessen at Tuesday’s event, who brought 7-year-old daughter Harper along to help out.
Meester and Brody also hope to instill the value of giving back into their daughter, Arlo, who turns two later this year.
“She's too little to come here today. She'd be like, 'I don't get it.' But I think it's a really, you know, even for us, this is something we're sort of even learning about, and I think that it's really important to show your children that there are different sides to everything," Meester shared.
“It’s something that people I think don't talk about. This is a crisis. This is a huge issue…. I mean, this is a summer hunger campaign for the awareness of all the kids in America that don't have food during the summer," she added. "So, I think you sort of take that for granted and I think to just instill in your children, or to just teach your children and also remember yourself, you're super lucky. And also it's good to reach out and to help and just to remember that.”
