Ian Somerhalder: August Man Attractive

Ian Somerhalder: August Man Attractive

Ian Somerhalder rocks a Dolce & Gabbana shirt and Pudel skinny jeans in the November 2009 issue of August Man.

Here’s what the sexy 30-year-old Vampire Diaries star had to share with readers…

On his ideal role: “The one I’m doing right now, actually.”

On his transition from acting to modeling: “Fashion was a ton when I was young but, not being particularly as tall as one would need to be as a model (however I did fairly well) and not particularly seeing myself doing it for any length of time beyond it being a stepping stone into film and TV. The goal was: make money as a model and sink into acting training.”

On keeping his private life private: “It’s all very simple, actually. I’ve been left alone for the most part really. It doesn’t seem that what I do off the set is of importance to anyone!”

    He is smoking! I know he is going to age so gracefully. I agree Angela he is totally hotter than Zac Efron. Ian is the whole package and I can’t wait for more Vampire Diaries!

    do not compare with the others! he can act. That’s a big difference from them. And he’s drop-dead gorgeous :)

    soms Says:

    I guess he has to look pale, given the character he portrays. Still gorg though. I’d like to see him in a quality adult drama show (sv and vd do not count).

    It’s the eyes. He’s ‘otherworldly”. Ian’s been fantastic since “Rules of Attraction”, even in that horrible HBO show “Tell Me You Love Me”! Damon is a role he clearly sinks his teeth into, and he’s wickedly awesome!

    @angel: I know, right?! His eyebrows look so creepy especially in the first picture with the white shirt. Other than that, I would totally hit that every which way possible.

    @ganymede30324: I cannot believe Ian Somerhalder was on that trashy HBO show “Tell Me You Love Me”. This show was so trashy and sexually explicit. And I know the sex was simulated but it looked very really. There was full frontal nudity. I thought less of him after that.
