Did you hear that Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf tied the knot in February in a super secret, intimate ceremony in Northern California? It might actually have been Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, the actors who portrayed two of the most iconic teen characters to ever grace television with their presence, but still! While they might not be the #mosttalkedaboutcouple, their relationship is certainly one of the more mysterious ones floating around la-la land. Was it masterminded by Josh Schwartz, the producer of both The O. Instead, it was the beginning of one of Hollywood’s most adorably private pair.They wanted us all to wear the same clothes that we’re wearing on the show. When Lively was dating Leonardo Di Caprio and shooting the series, she’d take photos of a doll to document where she was and send them to him. I’m open to anything that’s good, that’s interesting, and that sort of feels necessary.
In fact, she tried to decline the part when it was first offered, but they tricked her into taking it. After the first year [of the show], it’ll quiet down.Your life will go back to normal and you can start going to school.But there was one problem: she was blonde," Schwartz said. The first time Chace Crawford (who played Nate Archibald) met Meester, he couldn’t see her as Blair. “I’m actually a very shy person and the idea of losing my anonymity was one that was scary to me,” she said."And Blake was blonde, obviously; Serena had to be blonde. “[I thought] I just don’t see her as Blair Waldorf. She’s the perfect girl for this.’” would become the phenomena it did. “I remember saying when I read this script, ‘Whoever does this will not be able to walk out of their house ever again and be the same as before they started this.’ You could tell it was a cultural phenomenon. Was a secret crossover episode filmed and never released? Lovers of the two shows rejoiced at the made-for-TV union of Brody, 34, and Meester, 27, and fortunately their marriage wasn’t an elaborate stunt to make Chuck Bass or Summer Roberts jealous.
No official announcements via Perez Hilton of their dating status.“It’s funny,” Trachtenberg said, “Because when we were filming, there was, ‘Leighton hates Blake, Blake hates Leighton, everyone hates Blake, everyone hates Leighton, everyone hates Chace,’ and blah, blah, blah. Yet the second they’d be on set together, it’s as if they were.” 18. "[She] was very removed and very quiet, and, after her scenes were done, she would wander the stage," Safran said. You talk to Blake on a very contemporary level, and she would be like, ‘I’m doing this thing tonight. “The shocking thing was, I found out on the set of the season 2 finale that Blake and Penn had broken up months before,” Safran said."I had this image of her just in these gorgeous dresses with a book in her hand, sort of a little bit out of focus out in the corners.”19. “They kept the breakup hidden from the crew, which you could never do now. They kept it from everybody which is a testament to how good they are as actors.Because they did not want their personal drama to relate to the show.” 21. It was like there was a ‘Gossip Girl’ in our system.” 25.Lively was initially afraid of her bosses finding out too much about her relationship with Badgley—until she realized they wanted the cast members to date. We didn’t understand what was happening, because everything was getting leaked, every detail. The show’s actual Gossip Girl, by the way, was never going to be a girl, but both Nate and Eric van der Woodsen, Serena’s brother, were considered by the writers as possible real identities of the blogger earlier on.26.We can’t put it in writing, but we promise you can go.’ So that’s why I said, ‘Okay. I’ll do this.’” Of course, things didn’t actually quiet down. Leighton Meester first auditioned for Serena, but told producers she felt she was a better fit for Blair Waldorf. Meester wanted the part of Blair so badly that she dyed her hair for it.
