Ian Somerhalder Bares His Arms of Steel for 'Annex Man'
Here is what the 35-year-old actor, who shares cover honors for the issue with Danity Kane, had to share with the mag:
On his fashion sense: “For day to day looks, my style is themed around effortless comfort. I’ll often hear ‘Beauty is pain’ and that couldn’t be further from the truth for me! If I enjoy the texture and I connect with the story behind the piece–be it sustainable harvesting, manufacturing,distribution or a “giving back” component from that company, I will feel confident and comfortable wearing that item. But face it, I’m a dudes-dude who likes easy comfortable jeans and t-shirts to keep an otherwise and increasing more-complex world a bit simpler…”
On what he likes to do when he isn’t working: “Immersed in the worn pages of philosophy or a great work of fiction, taking in the hum of crickets and wilderness, and surrounded by the people I love. Simple joys in this life we tend to forget are even there. Taking a minute to leave the office or the studio for a stroll on a brisk fall day or a warm summer one really can work wonders. I find myself, just like the rest of us, trying to find that healthy balance. I’m no busier than anyone else. The 21st century is going to be an interesting time for humanity. My hope is that while taking that stroll, having a conversation with a friend at a coffee shop gazing out the window we realize one thing: We need nature–whether it’s for those worn book pages or those leaves blowing in the clean air we breathe.”
