Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder: Christmas Tree Shopping!

Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder: Christmas Tree Shopping!

Ian Somerhalder and his girlfriend Nina Dobrev pick out the perfect Christmas Tree together on Tuesday (December 4) in Atlanta, Ga.

The Vampire Diaries couple pointed out different trees to each other before selecting one – at one point Ian held up some tree to Nina‘s nose for her to smell!

Unfortunately, that same day, Nina was running a fever!

“Still bed ridden. Not feeling too Hott. Well.. Technically I have a fever so I am hot. But you know what I mean….” she tweeted.

The week before, Nina and Ian, along with their Vampire Diaries co-star Claire Holt, took in a performance of TOTEM by Cirque du Soleil at Atlantic Station in Atlanta. Check out the pics of Ian with some of the performers below!

FYI: Nina and Ian are wearing American Eagle while shopping for the trees.

    @FrenchGirl:
    It is yesterday news and common knowledge that CW payed Mama Dobrev and asked her to join her daughter while Nina was doing her photoshhot with Vogue in Paris (you can see her clothes in Paris on Elena on screen during season 3).Welcome to showbiz.They scheldued her photoshoot with his con, b/c fans wanted Nian in Paris, and payed her mother to join.
    As for Paris this year, she was there only for plec BDay.Not b/c Ian missed her. He had a blast resting form her.

    stop twisting facts

  • TVDFan

    I do find these comments rather amusing, its funny how you guys get your knickers in a twist over Nian, I mean someone would think you Nian fans are in love with these two? Ok so heres my two cents, I am a fan of the show not the couples.

    1. These photos look very staged, not a hair outta place and Ian kinda does look pissed maybe they photographed his bad side who knows!

    2. Sorry Nina fans but Nina is quite a handful, friends who have met her have said she is quite off and at one of his events she acted quite rude to some of the ISF peeps there. She doesnt get invited to many events because of her attitude, its been known she has asked for double the amount of money because her answer was “I play two characters” so bully for you, doesnt give you the right to ask for double the money!

    3. As for their relationship, it does look like a publicity stunt, rumours went around that Ian was spending alot of time with Matt Davies because Nina was getting too him and that was last season. Remember Nian was fan made up, the fans pushed this, even Delena has been pushed, fans send poor Julie Plec hate tweets because Delena hasnt happened I mean come on guys show some respect, its not your show if you dont like it watch something else!

    4. They hid they relationship and yes Ian has denied it on several accounts that he wasnt dating he even said he was dating the show and this was when pics of him and nina leaked I mean come on we can see your kissing or holding hands dont treat us like idiots, but why hide the face your dating her for me that just seemed silly. If your dating a hot guy wouldnt you want to tell the world and the same for him if you were dating a hot chick you would want to tell the world but they didnt but Stephen Mcqueen has no problem saying he is in a relationship, Kat is engaged and I am not sure but Candice and Zach at no problem revealing they were dating, so tell me what makes them two so special?

    4. TVD is not all about Nina and Ian but to me it seems that everything centers around them, I mean you have them banging on screen and now fans want them in real life. I agree with the above comment these two get more tv/media coverage than Kate and William ffs!

    5. Nina and Ian I agree do only tweet when they need something, look how he is in first place for the ISF thing, he tweeted and his fans helped. Not knocking what he does isnt great cause it is, I think what he does for the environment is great, kids and animals and I am an ISF supporter.

    6. Thanksgiving, what the heck was that all about, he tweets he will be at his brothers pizza place, come on Ian did you think fans werent gonna turn up? Nina was there doing pizza come on people that was fab publicity for the both of them, Ian helping his brother and the so called girlfriend helping out, well makes fans love Nian even more right, which will make you watch TVD even more right, which will make ratings go up right? Can anyone see a pattern here?

    Its all about ratings, when Kirsten cheated on Robert, fans was outraged noone wanted to see the last installment and then we find out Kirsten and Robert together well how convienant that is and look twlight was a huge success. Come guys Bella and Edward on screen Kirsten and Robert off screen again anyone see a pattern?

    Once the show is over it will end, Nina is young and wants success, she strikes me as someone using Ian for his success and he doesnt mind as he has a hot chick on his arm which makes fans love him even more!

    Come on Delena happened bet you ratings went through the roof and now all these pics of Nian people seriously you cant all be blind and playing ignorant cause you love these two. What happened before all of the Delena fuss, I didnt see many pics of them at all.

    I have been to the TVD cons and I have to agree with @SoTrue Ian is a ladies man and he does love the woman, he does flirt, he flirted with me and my friend made me laugh cause he came off so sleazy but that doesnt mean I dont like him I do, I think he is a nice guy but in show business you dont get where you are without being abit devious and sorry Nian fans this whole thing is a publicity stunt to get ratings up.

    Would you still like Nian if say tomorrow they ended it and Ian say started dated Phoebe Tonkin? Would you still be happy for Ian?

    Fans need to get a grip with whats fiction and whats reality and to me it does look kinda fake. Paparazzi are good but seriously are they that good finding them two searching for xmas trees come on people you may hate on the people who state the obvious deep down inside you must know something isnt right.

    I remember Ian saying he would never date someone who smoked or he hated smokers something like that dont quote me, Nina smokes and so does Ian for someone wanting to help the environment etc surely smoking isnt good for his health let alone anyone elses as I have seen them smoke in public, for me thats abit hypercritical!

    He should really find someone his own age.

  • Damian

    I am a TVD fan but really who gives a rats ass if they are dating or not? I really couldnt care less, Everyone is entitled to their opinions and @GUEST that was abit out of order to say someone to GET A LIFE since you aint much better coming onto here and saying how much you love these two? I could tell you the same thing. Whats with all the negative feedback just cause your not a NIAN fan lets give them a thumbs done, come on were not a school?

    I for one dont like NIAN so you gonna give me a bad rating for that? I am all for DELENA so do I get a good thumbs up for that comment, this is all getting beyond a joke!

    People are entitled to their own opinions your gonna agree to disagree if you cant respect everyones comments and opinions then thats sad!

    I for one am reading all of these comments and I agree with the relationship being staged, come on the perfect shot when he hands her a piece of tree to smell now that looks like a kodac moment not natural at all, maybe I would take their relationship seriously if she wasnt wearing designer clothes to promote or pretending to be ill when she is out shopping for trees and she wonders why she has some many haters? I cant name one pic that they look natural in they all looked some what posed.

    My mate knows Mr Somerhalder and says he is a attention whore (in the nicest way, they are friends) Ian is the sort of person who would go out shopping and if he isnt recognised he would make sure he is, he would see someone he knows and shout out hey its Ian so people would turn and pay attention. But hey each to their own. I met the dude nice enough guy down to earth but yeah loves the women, he said my gf looked hot, let that slide since he was a celeb.

    Who knows whats going on in that relationship, come on girls you gonna hate anyone Ian dates thats a fact unfortuately it happens to be Nina, yeah I heard she is a nightmare and rude too. I cant see how Nian really works to be honest I cant see it lasting they are a mis match.

    Its obvious that half of these people on here are NIAN lovers so my advice to the others dont bother saying what you think, they dont want to hear, I read your comments and do agree with some of them but you dont see me giving negative feedback for it.

    I think people should take a step back remember you shouldnt always believe what you read in tabloids, things never are what they seem.

    NIAN fans just be fans and not obsessive abusive fans, noone really knows what goes on in their private lifes and whatever they do its none of our business, this is getting as bad as the shipping war, stelena/delena.

    Intelligent people know whats fake and whats real, dont get side tracked or wrapped into a life of two celebs we dont know nothing about.

  • Katy

    I like them as a couple but this seems very much like a photo op. It’s obvious they called the paps.

  • Meg

    @Jomofan: I bow down to you and everything you said there…thank you!

    @natalie: I’m european and I never go out when I’m sick

  • So true

    @TVDFan:
    High Five! Really!
    I may also add that it’s obvious that their agents read ALL comments,positive and negative too. Nina created FB after fans complaining she doesn’t have one, Ian got instragram recently b/c fans wanted too.
    Agents can’t force ppl to work with Nina, so she isn’t attending event’s even more. Rmember she got a dress for Emmy this year? Was she theer? NO! Even being Ian’s supposed gf this time hadn’t helped her.
    Now, what is REALLY interesting, that too many ppl here and not only here said that Atl gives them privacy and here we go they called paps to ATL!WOW! that is called DAMAGE CONTROL!
    @Damian:
    Bro u rock! Really! Ian indeed is kind of attention whore, but but but, that dude manages to do it charmingly and easy. Like he is just generally loud person. He knows how business works and doing all what is needed to stay wanted and unknowledged.
    It is surprisingly that u know that and still like him.
    With Nina is totally opposite. Her temper tantrums when she is unnoticed are notorious.
    As for womaniser thing. Oh come on bro why wouldn’t he? he is young, single, why not?Wouldn’t you act the same if you would be single and hot?
    they are total mismatch. Nina is immature kid, Ian is grown upo man.
    It is true that he did hide with Matt Davis when Nina started to chase him again at some point.
    But ppl in Atl knows thar they been friends, then went to just co workers. But never a lovers even casually.
    It is all for fans.

    @Guest:
    u change ur attitude fast. U started here long ago not only in this article comments as the one who tried to calm down Nian obsession, stating that u know that they are just friends. And here we go a change of attitude. Weird huh?
    And what different it will make if i am from Atl from time to time or from BigApple, or been send to EU or…erghm…Siberia?
    I am at Atl often enough, to say what i am saying

    Just b/c u know so much abt them even though don’t like them, I thought u might live nearby. I mean, otherwise, how could u know all of this.

  • So true

    @Guest:
    I am often guest in ATL and GA for TV shows and other filmings there.
    Also i visit NYC much. And i know a lot but i also know when the cat is out of the bag and agents do not mind of info spreading around (u noticed i am not the only one with that kind of info) and when i need to keep my mouth shut.

  • Natalie

    Believe me Nina has told the world she is dating Ian that’s something she loves to talk about because that’s all she has to talk about, and the problem with this fan base is a heap of children giving Somerhalder relationship advice.

    Let’s keep in mind Nina and Ian both have close friends in the media, they can have any sort of paparazzi encounter arranged quite easily. They are friends with the founder of Just Jared and the list goes on.

    I just want to thank who was it? @River, who confirmed that Ian is a supporter of farmed trees to be cut down even though they can’t fit into his elevator, and that Nina looked perfectly fine all smiling and rosy on the day she was bed ridden, who is still trying to convince us by the way on twitter talking with her media friend, that she’s still ill.

  • Damian

    @Natalie:

    You go girl!! High five to you and @so true :)

  • Guest

    @So true:
    I was sure they r just friends but my sources told me otherwise. there is something between them, though, I donno how much serious it is or when it started. also I know they r not living together. well it’s not a secret.

  • ….

    Seems staged

  • So true

    @Guest:
    i know that they are just friends. Ian never wanted her and he is not good enough for her, she is aming for someone whom she can use with better chances to A list.
    But i know that smth going on between them is either her blackmailing him, either to cvover the tracks b/c to many ppl see them with different persons.
    damage control
    They do not live together, they stay at different hotels duirng trips.

  • So true

    @Guest:
    what u sources say? That somewhere during from september till now there was a shift in between them to casual hook ips and booty calls?
    I know that in the end of the summer things were pretty bad between them. They are mismatch on so many levels. Troubles during shooting too.
    The only way i can see that someone said that their’s smth between them is either about being at each others throats, eaither new trick for damage control.

  • http://so so

    PR

  • Verite

    Never ceases to amaze me how many people are bound and determined to pour so much energy into proving or disproving whether these two are dating. Who cares? How does this affect anyone’s life? All you guys have done is made this set of pictures a “hot topic” on Just Jared’s site and you are further promoting their promotional relationship if that’s what you believe. If you think its all bullshit, stay away, stop commenting and posting and then, guess what? The paparazzi wouldn’t have anyone to buy their pictures.

  • So true

    oh i forgot to say, as i see we all went almost open here. Someone even mentioned that Michaela was payed by CW for the Paris. So here we go, what i know for sure. (hope u’ll share what u know also)
    ppl on the set never could understand why fans created Nian. B/c Ian is very passionate man and if he wants smth he goes for it or if he can’t he would make a flirty attitude. But on set from the very beginning there was no interest from his side in Nina. he was looking through her. She was busy making herself a center of everyones attention and didn’t flirt with him more than with others.
    In 2011 when CW decided to give Nian fullforce, Nina tryed to seducve him but failed. It pissed her off and she spread rumors that he is to fast in bedroom. That was a beginning of bad blood between them. They hadn’t hooked up till november 2011 that is 100% sure.He was running circles from her. During summer 2011 she was to busy flirting with thick walltes on parties, but after Halloween there was Ninas chase after Ian once again. Matt davis was Ians refuge. In the end of season 3, they werent even friends any more, just co workers and Ian was her baby sitter at paties, summer was easy the spend it apart and whern they met ian did drink himself to obvilion near her.In autumn things went worse so they called for damage control. I dunno when they managed to hook up. B/c at party in Atl in october end he was still running from her and only timethey were near is leaving together b/c fans were watching. During TOTEM Ian had at least 7 beers and was rarely near Nina if not fans were talking about them. So i dunno, may be there is smth in between them. But i don’t see it.

  • Guest

    @So true:
    nope. I cannot detail here, sorry. but I can tell u that one source told me that Ian did the first live stream from Nina’s place. it doesn’t mean anything, of course.

  • So true

    @Guest:
    here is the thing what i can add. What i mentioned before is not a secret anymore, so i was open. I do understand and respect ur reasosn. As u can guess i know more than i am saying. But back to the topic.
    Fans tend to look for mathing things and TV sets and blah blah blah. So the SONY TV they see as a proof b/c both Nina and Ian tweeted a pic with it, stands on set in a lounge.
    As for Ian being at Nina’s place. Well first of all it is possible and for so many no romantic reasons. second both of them are aware of fans obsession on finding matching furniture. So i wouldn’t be surprised if Ian did so.
    And third. I am not saying that ur source is wrong, but it is actually possible that their places look a like or the same from inside, b/c the live in the same apartament block (as other actors) and design is the same for all apartaments.
    So i do agree that what was said give me shadow of a doubt for what i wrote above, but still is not enough comparing to what i saw and what i know to say that there is smth besides friendship and co workers between them.

  • guest

    @Amy:
    And don’t forget the part where he very firmly tells her NO! Not once, but twice! Weirdest couple ever! He STILL won’t admit she’s his g/f, and never mentioned ANY of her mag interviews or covers when she was blabbing all over that they were a couple. He’s always supported her mags before. It looks like a very one-sided relationship. She’s a little girl looking up to her big man boyfriend, and he’s in a mid-life crisis, trying to hang on to his youth.

  • Guest

    @So true:
    it just makes more sense that he live streamed from her place than they bought the same TV. also, the cat he was holding is probably Nina’s. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in purpose. I know some more details that might surprise u a bit but even if they r really dating, they r not living together.

  • So true

    Here is account for spam and especialy for jarred vmih@inbox.lv
    send a mail. lets chat in private)) Lol that is fan. I hope Ian gets the PCA with the hard dicussion that gets this article on the top
    BTW cat whom he is holded can be his third cat. Same colors.His bro send a pic od ians third cat, can be taken for Ninas as well.
    It is hard to surprise me. B/c i work with media.
    And what shoking u would say that even if they are dating they sleeping around with others? Yestreday news. Or that they barely talk to each other and mostly are on each ther throats?

  • So true

    P.S.
    Check the video with Gabby Douglas from the set. She is in the same room Ian streamed first time. It is loubge on the set with SONY TV in it, palm trees and other stuff.

    same here

  • Amy

    The conspiracy theories here are cracking me up. Don’t be jelly. Also there’s nothing wrong with some harmless flirting. I think my favorite conspiracy theory is that the CW is behind Nian because the fans wanted them together. Is that why Ed and Leighton from GG dated? Oh wait, they didn’t.

  • chick

    @So true:

    so true, iam interested in what you know as I have heard alot of things too, can I mail you?

  • So true

    @chick:
    sure. But be awre i am saying only what is out of the bag already

  • Sammy

    Wow… these comments are very interesting. I don’t know how genuine these two are as a couple.. but seriously so many negative comments makes me doubt them as a couple.. As they say no smoke without fire.

    Oh yeah i agree with the whole twitter promotion these guys do. :)

  • chick

    I have always had doubts about these two, I am friends with people who know them and I have heard so many negative things about them. I agree Ian only does tweets when he needs something, like last night it was dont forget to watch TVD or dont forget to vote for me at PCA I am not knocking the guy but I feel its all about him sometimes and not his fans, I notice he only replies to fans that actually do something for him or someone trying real hard to get his attention. Dont hate me but I have met him and I dont think he is one of the smartest people neither, have the time he looked pretty out of it. The relationship I have to agree with some of the negative comments, it does look staged these pics and its like they are acting, there is something more to this relationship. I have heard alot of bad things about Nina and what she says about Ian and I think thats really bad. I mean what happened to the PCA awards last year was it when Nina wasnt even in the catergory and all of a sudden she wins one??? Then she flaunts it in poor Ians face knowing how badly he wanted one. She strikes me as really shallow to be honest and I think he is too good for her. She doesnt really follow his ISF stuff I think she jsut hangs about for the publicity. At the coachella concert if you look at the pics she is always looking at the pics, maybe its a question of he is into it more than her. I dunno I think the whole relationship is not real. But I suppose we will never know!

  • Verite

    Personally between the two I will tend to defend Nina before giving Ian the benefit of the doubt. Nina is so young. Three years ago she was a little girl straight out of suburban Toronto whose only experience was degrassi and some awful TV movies. Ian on the other hand has been dallying about with god knows who since he was modelling at 17. He’s much older and yet he’s still pretty much immature. He’s the same age as Joshua Jackson and look at the difference in how they conduct themselves and the projects they take on. Ian behaves like a frat boy most of the time.

  • Sherry

    @So true:

    Wow…This is both insightful and shocking at the same time…So I think I’m going to play the devils advocate here….If it is all PR, and I really don’t know one way or the other, but if it is, just say for arguments sake — Then it’s a pretty good business move don’t you think on their part…I mean after all, they are young, and what young person doesn’t want to promote their career!!! After all they are T.V.actors not big movie stars, so why not try and move it along further- I mean they are after all entertainers in the entertainment business, and if I go by that and that alone – then they’re doing their job, ..I really do enjoy TVD… Anyway, I’m just saying….

  • Verite

    @Sherry:
    I agree with you. If this is all marketing then they’re doing a great job. As for sotrue and a few others here I guess my question is who appointed any of you guardians of the truth and saviours of the delusional fandom? I mean even if you think people are being misled and that this couple is leading other fans, what business is it of yours and why do you care? Nobody is being hurt. Every fan ever has bought into an image constructed by publicists. This is what entertainment is and of all the awful things that a person can believe this stuff is relatively harmless. People are having fun and joining a community of like-minded fans and making friends. How is this so awful and why should you, sotrue, spend so much energy on such a negative pursuit? Forget all this, go out, have fun, make friends, and forget it. You hating these people doesn’t change a thing and does nothing good or helpful for you.

  • Elena

    wow, just wow, so much hate. Sorry but with all due respect grow up really.

    @sherry thank for your post in this nonsense and crazy argument that many have here.

    You know, I do think too that Ian and Nina are only friends, started probably as some friends with benefits but no way these two are in love or whatever, for me it´s pretty clear. And right know they are dealing (due to the nature of the show and age of the audience) with some crazy fanfare, and when you start (although Ian has been in this business for quite some time) as any actor/actrees you need fans and a real love story sells. It happens with them and many actors all the time at some point in their carrers, especially when you are young, this is how it works in Hollywood baby as Billy Crystal said once, HOLLYWOOD A PLACE OF SECRETS AND LIES and business. I think that one of the mistakes that people make is putting a celebrity or relationship on a pedestal really, not only Ian or Nina, I am talking about any celebrity.So I consider Ian or Nina the worst human beings for that? no, they do what many actors do, and I don´t know them either.

    I think that they are using this Nian thing very wisely, they use it in some dosis without hurting their careers (because it could hurt), for them their careers are their priority and are very focus on that and I have the feeling that they are very professional too, let´s say that this Nian thing is an extra bonus, they are selling a love story (and that sells) and in general have good press.

    On the other hand, if people like this couple, let it be, people have the right to think and like what they want. I think time is wiser and probably this Nian thing will be over when the show is over and many people will look at things then with perspective but in the mean time if they want to enjoy this coupling again let it be. I am pretty sure that is what Ian and Nina are thinking too, let the people think what they want (good things or bad things) that I countinue with my life.

  • Jayme

    I wonder what will be the next big step in their relationship:engagement,wedding,pregnancy or … breakup?LOL
    Get your bet on!

  • chick

    @Amy:

    no but blake and penn did!

  • Natalie

    I have a conspiracy theory. Nina likes her fans to know when she’s having sex with Ian so they can tweet her about it.

  • Natalie

    I have another conspiracy theory nothing is top secret with Nina Dobrev.

  • chick

    @Natalie:

    lol u crack me up! yep i had the same theory lol you mean boootieeee call dont ya lol

    btw did nina even wish ian a happy bday? nian fans went mad last year when she tweeted happy birthday to my favourite vampire………but didnt see nothing this time what i saw was “sending you, you know what wishes to you know who..shhh top secret. Thats such a *cough* interesting way to wish your boyfriend a happy birthday!

  • So true

    @Natalie: @chick:
    I love u theory, though sadly reality is much more entertaining. Nina spend a day with a manager paul Cha in Atl, who celebrated his BDay as well! They spend it together(while ian run from her to LA), but the best part of it thta Paul Cha has a flue the whole week!! Interesting hah?

  • chick

    @So true:

    oh now thats interesting lol

    Ians at the creations tvd con today wonder if she will show up……..doubt it lol

  • So true

    @chick:
    i doubt it to. She was supposed to attend this one, before organisators cancelled her. So imagine WHAT normal fans would do if she will show up jut to Ian insted of them?

  • Verite

    OMG people are so hateful I can’t stand it anymore. I hope you all are enjoying your miserable lives cackling about other people’s business. What a bunch of witches.
