She speaks! Leighton Meester has been mum on her marriage to Adam Brody thus far, but the Gossip Girl alum could't help but gush about her man while promoting her new play Of Mice and Men.

"That pesky guy," she said of Brody in an interview with Newsday. The actress, 27, is currently starring in the stage adaptation of John Steinback's classic drama on Broadway with James Franco, and opened up about working with her new hubby in the upcoming film Life Partners.

"That came along just by chance," she said of working with him again. "I was like, 'I'm gonna be playing the person you're not dating,'" she laughed. "'That OK? I'm gonna be playing the opposite of that.' And yeah, I'm biased — but he's incredible in it."

Us exclusively broke news back in February that Meester and the O.C. alum, 34, secretly tied the knot. (The twosome first met on set of The Oranges in 2012.)? Since then, they've resided in NYC for the duration of Meester's Broadway debut. On April 2, the typically private pair were photographed kissing on a Manhattan street corner.
