Leighton Meester and Adam Brody took their dogs for a walk in NYC on Thursday ahead of Leighton's evening show for her Broadway play, Of Mice and Men. The actress and the play have been getting quite a bit of attention this week after Leighton penned an article for Huffington Post where she discussed the feminist subtext of her character, Curley's wife, who is also the only female character in both the John Steinbeck classic and the play. The actress wrote, "If this woman is purely a victim, why is she so hated? And if she is truly harmless, why is she so threatening? Without question, it was a commentary on the social climate at the time, which still surprisingly applies today." Leighton has been open about her feminist ideals, including saying that gender-equality icon Betty Friedan is her role model.
