So I met Adam Brody last weekend. I told him he was nice. Remember when I met Joe Jonas and I was extremely awkward? He wasn’t even my celebrity high school crush.
Adam was promoting a new film he is in called Life Partners that is being shown in the Tribeca Film Festival. His wife Leighton Meester, my other celebrity crush, is one of his co-stars. She sadly couldn’t be there because of her role in Of Mice and Men, but we made due.
In the small moments we got to see his personality he seemed to be a lot like his character Seth from the O.C. Adorable, awkward, self-deprecating, and charming. There were maybe 80 people there and most, I’m guessing, were scholarly and were there for other reasons than making their high school dreams come true . . . then there were the 15 of us that were just there to make our high school dreams come true. Poor guy, he will always have his entourage of O.C. die hards that follow him to the ends of the earth. Daniel does not think this is something we should pity him for.
Once the Q&A was over the heard of 15 girls swarmed him. I wasn’t going to do it. I try to play it cool around celebs, remember? But luckily my trusty friend Gabi gave me the courage to get in line and get a photo with him. The Apple employee was a little annoyed at the gaggle of girls (he was just jealous) and was going to cut us off. Adam told him it was fine and he would take photos with all of us and that is when I said, “oh you are so nice.” or something…. I felt it was well deserved. Poor guy just got off an airplane (note his messy hair) and probably just wanted to see his wife, but instead had to take photos with girls who have had pictures of him in their bedroom for the past 10+ years.
And again, just incase some of you didn’t listen when I first posted about my obsession with O.C. here is the storytelling genius Ira Glass to back me up on how great the O.C. was.
