    Ian’s trademark smirk is starting to get annoying. Yes, we know you are good looking, but must you have that smirk on every time?

    Ian works his butt off for a great cause. Nina is there to get her picture taken. She loves the attention and HAS to be the center of attention or she acts like a spoiled child. Ian I hope wakes up and gets with someone who will work with him for the cause. Not to take the spotlight away from him.

    I heard the event was amazing! I’m very proud of Ian, ISF and all the volunteers! Cleaning up the beach of California is a great cause, BRAVO!

    Way to go Ian! <3

    Please. You obviously don’t know her. She’s his girlfriend and wants to be there for him. She’s anything like a spoiled child. Before she moved from Bulgaria to Canada, her family hadn’t got a thing. Nina is one of the most down to earth celebs out there, so check the facts, before you start talking!

    Irena Says:

    @tara: Totally agree with you Tara! Ian works his butt off while Miss Dobrev only shows up to get attention! If it wasn’t for Ian, she wouldn’t get half as much press! She is such a attention seeker! :(

    Nina was there to support the cause, just like Julie Plec and a few other TVD people were.

    Paula Says:


    Yeah, having another star from TVD will be so harmful for the cause, having more star power at charity events is always so bad /end sarcasm.

    I don’t get his permanent one side smile.
    I can’t bear that, it’s everything but natural.

    @Paula Julie was there? Thats awesome, who else?

    Paula Says:


    You actually sound like a jealous stalker. Going through some paparazzi videos and overanalyzing one minute videos of Nina’s facial expressions sounds really desperate.

    Egoiste Says:

    nah..i wish! it’s just such fun,to watch little sis gushing about match made in heaven at some board,where they bring all the stuff they can find about them,after we really saw them during Coachella. Drunk me best fun ever!
    Jared is crazy about the fact that they aknowledged him twice and gushing over them too. I love to read here sometimes how lonely fangirls dreaming about having same relationship ignoring the obvious!

    @Egoiste: Nina was at the beach helping.

    Starting countdown how soon horny teens and desparete housewives will come here do defend the fairytail they wrote themselves?
    My respect to Somerhalder,as was said he is working his ass out for a good deed and he is good at it!
    Also my admiration to him for the class he is handeling the situation with fanservice. He is a professional.
    Almost no mistakes as was made during his previous events and even when all accidents Nina caused with fanservice again will pop up (and they will) fans wont believe it,they already see her as a hostess of the event, even if it is obvious for everyone who knows the protocol of such events that she was there just as co star.

    Nina is beautiful and is anything but an attention hog! She is one of the classiest people in the business.

    …cute couple. Ian’s doing a lot of good.

    Liz Says:

    You people all sound completely and utterly insane. Round of applause to EVERYONE that attended an event for a good cause. Even if was just to get their picture taken. Their money still went to the foundation.

    Valentina Says:

    First of all Nina is his girlfriend so she has every right to be there to support him…second there were a lot of cast members and producers, plus others CW stars..
    It was an event for a good cause, everybody needs to shut up and be more respectful.

    Observer Says:

    I actually was a fan of ian until he started to talk way too much for his own good, well at least he is doing a good cause, as for the nina chick the snob didnt even attend the beach event. If you classify the dumb chick with the handbag holding her sandals as her attending the beach event then she is one dumb *****, the cute smiles and soft voice during interviews is all an act, dumb bogans, if u want dignified actors check out depp and mathew fox from lost now they r true actors, all this media attention that ian is seeking for is foundation is going to come back and bite him in the ass

    He really looks like a vampire

    Dani Says:

    You can hate on Nina as much as you want but not here…C’mon guys this is really ridiculous!
    Ian is a wonderful Guy with a big heart! He uses his frame to do good….I ADMIRE HIM SO MUCH FOR THAT! Never change Ian! Kudos to you!

    I’m also glad so many Co-Stars support his cause! Really nice! :)
