    Newlyweds Leighton Meester and Adam Brody have remained quiet about their relationship and are letting some adorable photographs do the talking. But the actress, who is currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, opened up about working with her husband in the upcoming comedy Life Partners.

    "Yeah, that pesky guy," the Gossip Girl alum joked with Newsday during a recent interview about their onscreen collaboration. "It's about finding each other, and how it kinda hurts to change and grow...for the better, even. It was the best. We basically got to say whatever came to our minds. There was a lot of improv."

    Meester portrays a lesbian in the flick, while Brody is a charming doctor. Gillian Jacobs also stars in the film as Meester's best friend.

    The 28-year-old brunette beauty admitted that it was fun appearing on the big screen with the O.C. actor and it "came along by chance."

    "I was like, 'I'm gonna be playing the person you're not dating,'" she told the newspaper with a chuckle. She continued: '"That OK? I'm gonna be playing the opposite of that.' And yeah, I'm biased—but he's incredible in it."

    Life Partners is set to premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

    The adorable couple, both bundled up in matching puffy black coats, were most recently spotted smooching on April 2 in Manhattan. Brody tenderly cupped his wife's face with his left hand, resulting in a picture-perfect clear view of his wedding band.
