Actor Adam Brody considers his career a success now he has shot a movie love scene with Hollywood sex symbol Meg Ryan.
The 27-year-old former The O.C. star is proud to be the latest name on the list of Ryan's onscreen love interests - a prestigious club including Russell Crowe, Tom Hanks, Hugh Jackman and Alec Baldwin - after starring alongside her in In The Land Of Women.
Brody says, "When I got the part I thought about how many leading men she (Ryan) has been opposite, which are some of the greatest actors of this generation and I was excited and intimidated by that," says a relaxed Brody from his home in Los Angeles.
"I just didn't want her to be disappointed in me. But I think we got along well and I think there was some chemistry there.
"I have been in teen shows for years, so doing that stuff (kissing) is kind of commonplace and not a big deal.
"It was way more cool just because it was Meg Ryan."
