8. How Did They Meet?

The most logical explanation would be that these two were both introduced by Josh Schwartz, the mastermind behind both The O.C. and Gossip Girl, but that’s actually not the case! Their first real encounter with each other was on the set of The Oranges, a 2011 independent film, but at that time Meester was dating someone else. It’s unclear when exactly the two started dating, but they decided to go public with it in early 2013 and were spotted out and about on various dates. According to a source at US Weekly, Meester had a crush on Brody before they started dating!
