Ian Somerhalder Bares His Arms of Steel for 'Annex Man'

Ian Somerhalder Bares His Arms of Steel for 'Annex Man'

Ian Somerhalder shows off his buff arms on the cover of Annex Man magazine’s Winter 2013/2014 issue, available now!

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.”

    Give us a break. His style is whatever designer gives him FREE clothes. Then we’re the one who actually pay for the crap. As for the picture, either he’s heavy on the botox or it is really really airbrushed.

  • Sorya

    OMG, He looks gorgeous! I have seen him in person and believe he does not need botox or airbrushing..

  • Grey

    Haters can go away! This man ROCKS! He is AMAZING all the way! he deserves to be on all covers in the world! Go Get them tiger!!

    I am so happy btw that he not so subtly stated that he leads single life and as a man prefers to date girls of his age and wishes the same for Damon on TVD!
    Hopefully fans will let go of their illusions, will listen to Ian himself and will enjoy the ride of being HIS fan!

  • http://justjared ash

    Ian looks sooooo hot

  • Keilee

    Oh my god he rambles. He is so boring

  • Sophie

    wow he is so hot and talented, can I have a Ian too?

  • Wow

    He looks very good and for all of those who forgets. Lets remember Ian used to be a model and that is why, he is posing. I do want to know if someone buys the magazien what he has to say about Nina. Please update here. I dont think he is on botox. He was born with that jawline and cheek bones, very distinctive.

  • Anna

    @jenna: I’m pretty sure he still has to pay for clothes, either way he does a lot of good with his fame so you can sit down now.

  • cat

    He almost always wears jeans and a T-shirt, not the designers’ clothes. Anyway, he looks really good, despite the “questionable” clothes that he wears in those photos. I’m sorry, whoever is the author of the clothes, especially the striped thing.

  • starchy

    Why would he need Botox? He’s only 35! I’m 42 and have no lines. Plus, he moves his face and frowns all the time in TVD.

  • ana

    Handsome man, he looks amazing, love him

  • UGLY

    This guy is SUCH a joke! I laugh anytime I see him try to pose for a pic. It’s nearly as awful as his acting. He’s gotten old FAST. Thnk god TVD is ending in a yr so I don’t have to see his interpretation of acting…..which is freaking terrible.

  • cherie

    Gorgeous Man, and lol to posing, yes he is posing He is a Model. As for botox that is a laugh, that Man is even more gorgeous in Person, No Botox, because hes his Face moves, and when He laughs that beautiful Laugh, He has laughlines like everybody, no matter what age. His unbelieveable Eyes popped right out of His Face even more so than in Pictures, besides all that he is a wonderful caring Man and a great Actor.

  • to UGLY

    To you feel better now?

    By the way I love Ian

  • Lou

    Why does everyone feel the need to run to defend Ian if sumone doesn’t like him or think he’s hot? Everyone is allowed to have their own opinion. I for one don’t think he’s a very strong actor but I’m not going to run to bash sumone who thinks he is. It’s really childish.

  • pup


  • Paule

    He is the sexiest Man I have ever seen! I want this Magazin <3

  • Paule

    @Lou: If you don’t like him why comment on here? Seriously this is an article about Ian and we Fans don’t want haters on his Pages! We have every right to defend him. Its as simple as that!

  • Sany

    @cherie: I agree! I met him and he is SO BEAUTIFUL! Probably the most gorgeous man I have ever seen!

    The Pics are super hot! GO IAN :)))))) ( Deffinitely gonna buy the Magazine )

  • Kat

    He’s drop dead gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cherie

    @Sany: :-) He is defently the most beautifull Man I have ever seen, and such a kind Man to, and has there ever been any Pic, He isen’t super Hot in:-)

  • Paul

    Just because this post is about Ian doesn’t mean it’s fans only. This is a blog where anyone can comment on anything they want on ANY post. Though I have found that Ian fans’ tend to be really defensive.

  • Missy

    Beauty and brains!!! He has IT ALL <3 Love him :*

  • hune

    Haha I thought the second answer was going to turn into a joke but no he was being serious!

  • Yawn

    I like his non-profit work but he needs to take himself a little less seriously. Say less, Ian. Mystery and modesty are sexy!

  • CC

    Ughhhh screw Annex. I wish Ian could shine without having Nina’s name on the cover. He didn’t even speak about her at all. I’d be pis*ed if I was Ian.
    All the little kiddies are laughing because it has Derek Houghs name on it as well. “Awkward, he he ha ha”. Seriously, free Ian from this nonsense, he deserves better. I bet they didn’t even bother to read his article. Nina may enjoy flaunting, posing, pulling faces and letting everyone know who she’s crushing on to get attention and article written about her. But just leave Ian out of the immature high school drama now. It’s over.

    BTW all the people calling Ian Ugly, bad acting, old, are just jealous Paul Wesley fans…..happens every time, like clockwork. Same old, same old with everything obviously.

  • ISHA

    Ian Somerhalder is just one of a kind..Not because of his looks or clothes,but because he uses whatever amount of fame he has to create awareness,to give to the world as much as he can in way..he doesn’t waste fame..he uses his words,social media in such a good way..his positive things out weigh the negative things if he ever has any unknown to us,we appreciate the impact &inspiration he has on our be better people for the world..His looks just doesn’t matter&i’m sure he’s least bothered about botox because he is least bothered about getting a good role in hollywood,he is more concerned about his foundation &ryot news..A lot to learn from him..

  • ISHA

    by the way,with a jawline like that&eyes like that…who needs botox..lmao to people who keep trying to shove that botox thing down our throats about Ian..Wedon’t defend Ian,it’s what you call support..and he’s so good that he gets love and support..haters are just a little minority in the form of his costars&so called girlfriend’s fans..we know who they are who hate on Ian..

  • lucy

    3,2,1….and the hate comments for Ian starts.
    Ian, you look handsome and gorgeous and you are definitely a fine wine who gets better and better with age.
    love u……..

  • FAY

    HOTTEST MAN ALIVE and the best actor <3 Love you Ian!!!!!

  • So true

    I am happy that Ian gets all attention he deserves bc that man works hard and gives to the world more than he gets in return.
    I am sad bc Nina is leeching on his fame even in this article(((
    and this all bc there are crazy ppl who call themselves Nian fans but in reality they hate both actors as soon as they do not stand up to fans expectation of endless love which was never there but fans wanted it to be.
    So sad and pathetic ppl. Nina uses them. And it is upsetting that Ian’s name gets in the middle.
    Good thing he did said it all in classy manner. he is single, he is busy and he has no interest in younger woman!

  • LB


    I agree. He is beautiful to look at but he is way too preachy on his Twitter about his foundation and causes. Give it a rest! No wonder why he is still single at age 35. Beauty only goes so far.

  • Saskia

    Beyond HOT <333

    @LB: so? Why do you care? We love the way he is…he’s a great role Model and he loves and appreciate us! I’m so glad he’s not a Snob like most celebritys!

  • GIA

    He’s a great looking guy but I think he could stand to gain about 10 pounds. And lose the constant BROW-Frown…I keep wanting to lightly botox his brow just to keep him from doing it. So many young male actors get in the habit of furrowing the brow but it ends up dulling up their looks into that one same look ~ not to mention the permanent wrinkles it causes. KUDOS for the causes he espouses and for keeping things simple. Stay level and down to earth Ian, it will go a long way with your fans!


    SO in love with him <3 He is so incredible good looking!!!

  • Maria

    Ian is Fantastic forever!!
