“Things change, it’s life and…the parallels of how art imitates life this season are pretty staggering,” Ian told ET Online. “Especially when you have a team of writers who know you so well. I’m starting to see my life surface in the art and I’m starting to see the art surfacing in my life. It’s a very interesting dichotomy actors live but they’re supposed to be intertwined. Art should imitate life and life should imitate art.”

FYI: Nina is wearing a Rails Hunter plaid shirt and a twenty tees tank.

    She looks awful and very tired

  • Staynzy

    She really has been looking different lately, I still think she is gorgeous but her face has been looking a different shape or something but yet she doesn’t look like she has lost weight which usually changes it.

  • Niche

    Maybe she does not have that young face anymore and she is growing into a more mature lady so her face is changing. A question whats up with Nina traveling back and forth from Atlanta to LAX? I mean does not she has t stay in Atlanta to film? Or is that she has time off from filming like 3 days a week then she returns to Atlanta film episode then again 3 days off and so on. Unless she travels often to LA cause she is really dating Derek Hough so she has to see him

  • sarah

    NIna looks GORGEOUS! So talented. As for Ian, go hug a tree dude and let Nina go on and have a GREAT LIFE and GREAT CAREER.

  • Tina

    @ sarah “As for Ian, go hug a tree dude”…..ugh funniest thing I’ve read today.

  • Vervain

    She has let herself go since the NIAN break up. Maybe her new beau’s expectations aren’t as high as her last one. If you have seen her in some of the other random shots in the last couple months, she just looks sloppy and tired. I really used to like how she would keep herself very put together, whether it was just going out casually or for award shows. I think Ian may have been a good influence in that department for her. Have you seen how Derek dresses on a regular basis? Not impressive..nor is his sister’s ensembles. Yuck.


    nina is the best

  • Mel

    Love Nina! I think she looks great. I look like a total mess when I’m catching a flight…

  • Lucy

    Yeah, Ian was talking that as Elena, Nina is more younger than he and his character Damon. So as he Damon let Elena to be free to experiment her life, Ian had to do it with Nina. She wanna do news things, experiment the world and both Damon and Ian want Elena/Nina by his side, but need to let her go even if it hurts. To bad that Nina is already done with trying to figure out her life and is already in bed with Derek Hough. They are spending every free time that she have together and the whole summer they were together. Poor Ian had no idea she was just giving a excuse to be free and giving to Cosmo Magazine a excuse to sell the single and badass heartbreaker cover. What a liar, her tired face show it all.

  • Mia

    Why don’t you write something only about Nina? OK, I guess there’s nothing else to say beside “NINA IN LAX”.
    Ian’s posts is all about him, but when it’s about Nina is like it’s not enough and you have to put Ian’s name to the issue, so it will have more people reading.
    I wish Nina would leave Ian alone and go dance with her albino mokey Derek. Ian has done enough for her.

  • Simone

    @sarah: better hug a tree that won’t betrayal you than hug a f a m e w h o r e that takes pictures with her boyfriend and the guy she is having sex at the same time. What a lack of respect with Ian and with herself. At least everybody knows she is a liar and a pathetic person.

  • wow

    A lot of hate coming from a bunch of people who don’t really know this girl. With the way (the delusional) fans are behaving you’d think Nina broke up with them too!!! LOL Get a grip! And a life.

  • Jay

    Why does she look so messed up, unhappy and kinda ugly lately? Karma is a b*tch right Nina? Can’t believe I was a Fan of her once :( all she ever did was lie to us. She and this Monkey Derek deserve eachother. Attention seeker. Ugh :’(

  • Ella

    This girl needs support since she’s obviously heading down the wrong path. And I am not talking about her break up with Ian.
    Drugs,alcohol and decadent mormon company won’t get her anywhere.
    “Great life” “great career”= LOL
    She’ll end up like Mischa Barton if she can’t pull herself together in time.

  • Daniel Campos

    she (nina dobrev) lied strong single while she is dating someone to sell a magazine over .. she lied about going to conventions she lied about spending more time with her fans in comic con she lied about wanting to be single for a while to find her self and not jumping into new relationship i care that she lied to us her fans and underestimate us .. that she acts like she deserve better than tvd cast. she is ridiculous she makes me sick, disgust me

  • Ella

    @Daniel Campos: What?Have you lost your mind?!She doesn’t owe you anything!
    If she wants to say she’s single when she’s not,you can’t blame her for that.She’s a free individual who has every right to “lie” about her personal life,not a puppet begging for your approval.
    I myself don’t like her new “Hough”attitude and think she seemed classier and wiser before but once again it’s HER life.

  • matt

    for all of you that said she looks like a crap , dude, look at your GF! nina looks great in casual

  • Waste of time

    @Ella: So she can lie to a magazine cover that hundreds of people are going to read even her fans? That is not nice she is completely disloyal. I did not know to lie was a good thing

  • sarah

    @Simone: Umm Ian was in a 2 year relationship when he was with Megan when he started “DATING” a very young 20 year old Nina. Ian dates when it’s for him to further himself. When NOBODY knew who he was he dated and got pictures taken with Nicky Hilton, then at the height of Twilight, Ashley Green, then Maggie Grace when she was hotter on Lost and a MOVIE STAR of Taken. Megan, when he needed help starting his “foundation”, she is/was the one with the beauty, brains and connections. So give us a break with the whole it was Nina who did wrong.

  • Liz

    Nina opinion more one beggar junkie now!! sorry I she stood crazy!!!

  • ELA

    i third that.

  • Nikki

    Why is she wearing sunglasses at night? O_O

  • Elizabeth

    She’s been looking really rough lately. Her face/cheekbones seem gaunt and the giant vein on her forehead is more pronounced. But she hasn’t lost weight, so that isn’t it. To me she looks washed out and just bleh. Nothing at all against her personally- she seems fine, but as I see it, her looks are waning.

  • Elizabeth

    Although I will agree with the person who said that she looks like she’s doing the walk of shame. She’s a hot mess in these pictures and her hair looks like it’s been used as a birds nest. Not a good look at all.
