Adam Brody says Leighton Meester is his 'moral compass'

When Adam Brody was first getting to know Leighton Meester, he had his doubts about whether or not she was a good person. While speaking with Anna Faris on her podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, Brody opened up about his initial assumptions about the Gossip Girl actor. "[I] assumed she probably wasn't [a good person] for, like, the first handful of years I didn't know her ... just because [of her role on] Gossip Girl," he explained, alluding to Meester's character on the show.

Of course, once he actually got to know Meester, he quickly established a very high opinion of her character. "Come to find out she's literally Joan of Arc," Brody gushed on the podcast, adding that "she is the strongest, best person [he knows]." "She is my moral compass and North Star, and I just can't say enough good things about her character."

Though it's only a small glimpse into their marriage, Brody's comments about Meester definitely confirm that he has nothing but high praise for his wife and married life.
