— -- Adam Brody can thank his current fame to "The O.C." and his lovable character Seth Cohen, but in no way is the 34-year-old actor nostalgic for his days in Orange County.

When asked if he misses the show, he simply told HuffPost Live, "No, I don't."

"It was a wonderful time, but I'm significantly older, and that was ... maybe it's the equivalent of, 'Do you miss being back in college?' -- which I never went to, but probably a little, there are fun things about it. But that character? No."

He further explained, "That was a character from 2004, and it's very much of that time, and no, my interests don't lie there at all anymore. Like it or not, I've been accused of playing him ever since, anyways."

Brody is also over getting asked what his former character is up to now.

"He got married," Brody simply said, followed by how often he gets asked about the show.

He thinks it's great and it's a story he shares with a generation, so "in that way, it's an honor," but even though "I'm proud of the legacy, It gets boring, that's all. The only way it bothers me, it's not that I'm not proud of it, it's that I've exhausted the conversations about it, in my mind, to me."

He continued, "It's gets boring and I understand. Forgive me for comparing myself in any way ... but Harrison Ford, I understand why he would be crotchety talking about 'Star Wars,' which is beloved."
