  • catherina

    she thinks she’s hot cuz he’s dating her..he’s doing it all for pr for sure he can do much better

  • Vevinka

    so are they a couple? because iam sure they are :)

  • Gavin

    Please, people should stop saying how Ian can “do so much better” given that Nina is insanely beautiful. And Nelly, i think you are very shallow to judge the value of a relationship solely on one’s appearance. I would agree that one’s appearance is often what attracts others initial interest, but what really matters is what’s inside. If you are a fan of Ian, you would know that he has a big heart to help others and is much more than meets the eye.

    Congrats to them for making it official to their fans; i realize how much courage it takes with the media’s pressure. I hope their relationship goes well; my only concern is what will happen if they do break up in the near future. Their chemistry on screen may turn awkward and being on set with each other may become uncomfortable (i.e. Nina is still very green in the industry and may not know how to handle similar situations given that she claimed to have never dated anyone on set). That’s really the problem when actors (in the same show) start to date. The domino effect; the break up, becoming uncomfortable with each other, show goes downhill, ratings drop with lost chemistry on one of the most important elements in the show, show cancelled, back to dull lives where the media no longer has the spotlight on them.

    Nina needs a stylist ASAP

    vampire diaries going into it’s 3rd season this fall plus she did 53 episodes of degrassi … she’s here to stay and you really need to read a book or two every once and a while because i don’t think you know how long “15 minutes” is.

  • Daniel

    Omg Iannnnnnnnn, God hes the hottest man alive!
    Nina is sooo lucky!

  • sarah

    I like Ian but he’s 33. Nina is a beautiful young girl who should be enjoying herself. BTW, I didn’t realize how short he was or Nina shouldn’t wear heels when she’s around him.

  • Kat

    Seriously, could this man be any hotter?

  • al abri

    ian ,i love this man soo much

  • tammy

    Love TVD’s looks like Ian and Nina are really together. I don’t want them together on the show too. Now we’ll have to put up with Kevin playing favorites. He loves Ian and has made it clear to anyone who’ll listen. But, now with them dating they’ll have complete run of the show. It’ll eventually ruin the show.

  • DB

    Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are the perfect couple. I love them together and I am very happy to see them no longer hiding it.

  • Lena

    I’m so jealous of that gorgeous girl!
    But to be honest, I’d rather have Damon and Elena together. Hope this doesn’t ruin that!

  • hfdbfdg

    all these stupid comments about how if they break up it might affect there acting, they definitely would have had a talk to by the writers of the show if they break up they have no choice but to be professional because that is what good actors do if they do not act professional then they are not good actors just leave hem alone and let them continue on there relationship if they are def together i still haven’t heard proof

  • sally

    OMG such a hot couple, both are perfect in every way for each other…ian is a lucky man to have nina as his gf. Love them together…and btw i think nina has the best dressing style:)

  • Kristy

    A couple? I’m sorry never herd it come out of there mouths.. Who said they were dating, O YEAH right the press made them a couple. Those pictures mean nothing just 2 friends that like to hang out together.

  • Nita

    Couple or just friends, they’re both gorgeous and seems to share same good values…luv them!! Thanks for the pics, Jared!

  • BOJI

    They make a perfect pair actually. Nina champions Ian’s causes ie she shares his interests, is genuine about it, has a love for animals, loves the outdoors, sense of humour and is not a jealous type. She even cheers him on when the fans call out his name and clapped when the British inteviewer asked him to bite her(interviewer). A sporting girl who is also multi-talented, Ian should consider himself most fortunate.
    Gavin, I think you underestimate Nina and I believe they will be together for a long time yet.

  • life…

    what ian was in South Africa and nobody told me i just missed a prime moment to stalk the love of my life
    just joking:)

  • Lib

    Ahh, they are beautiful together, if they are together. She is multi talented, singer, dancer, athlete, very underrated actress. If they are not, some of the best relationships start with great friendships.

  • Danielle

    I think Nina is gorgeous, she looks nice and Ian is hot = Great couple

  • http://Gorgeous!! Janis

    Nice couple and great causes. Awesome!!

  • tvdobsessed

    i love ian and nina together and i don’t know why people are saying he’s way too old for her some couples have like a 30 year age difference between them! (i think) and plus ian looks like he’s in his twentys anyway and do you guys like ian with or without stubble? personally i like him without stubble but thats probably cause he has no stubble as damon and damon is sooooooooo hot! (please comment what you think about stubble)

  • Enadina
