    Ian, please put on some weight, you’re too skinny. You looked perfect in Season 1 of TVD.

  • Nini

    Love him in his ISF shirts. I would have loved to participate in asking questions but I’m not on Facebook. :(

  • http://justjared taylor

    Attention seeker

  • Gina

    Why? Is he filming himself crying on the couch instead of grieving privately? Trying to get his RYOT message out there and seeking attention for personal one ups are two different things.

  • http://justjared Ana

    He literally looks like a joker here lol so old and ugly

  • Emilia

    IAN ROCKS!!!!!!!

    @Ana: oh just shut up if you don’t have anything nice to say! Why waste your Time looking at his pics? Why waste your Time writing a comment? Sorry but you haters are pathetic. Go get a life!

  • Kate

    I love Ian, he’s by far the best and most down to Earth celeb ever! He really cares about his Fans! And he’s hot!!!!

  • Kahlan

    I’ve never seen a man as handsome and awesome as he is. He’s too good to be true. So sad I missed his Q&A tho :(

  • Sandra

    He’s AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Helen

    He’s so inspiring and awesome! I’m really proud of him, he’s my Idol and the best I could ever ask for! Go Ian, we love you <3

  • Tom

    Awesome Man, we need more People like him! I have to admit at the beginning I thought he’s just good looking but he’s so much more.

    @taylor: for caring about his Fans? Nah dude your Argument is invalid.

  • Zoey


  • Kristina

    who is he???

  • Kelly

    Ian`s fans are so lucky!
    Unlike other celebrities even his weekends are full of work. And he always has time for his fans. Isn`t it amazing?

  • Ian rocks

    He’s not only gorgeous on the outside, he also has a very big Heart. I’ve never seen a celebrity who cares so much about his fans like he does. He’s amazing and I’m proud to be his Fan.

  • Kate

    Just saying:
    If you don`t like someone, you don`t spend time to comment every article about him. It means that he is more intresting for you than your own idols and your own life. Pathetic right?
    Everytime you go to write bad things about him, it looks like you wanna sleep with him, but he doesn`t like you, so you are mad

  • Lena

    Aww kids don`t be jealous, one day your idol will give a crap of you (maybe) and you will stop being that mean

  • Mel

    @Kate: THIS! THE POWER OF IAN! Everyone is obsessed with him, and how could you not? Look at him, he’s ridiculously good looking, PLUS he’s an amazing Human being!

  • http://justjared sam

  • Kate

    @Mel IKR?
    People just ignore anything about him because he is the full package: Good-looking, talanted, humble…

  • http://justjared vanessa

    Ian wore so much make up on his face he looked scary to me LOL

  • Kate

    Also it`s so cute that people can`t find anything bad in the article. I mean whar`s bad here? Guy cares about his fans and planet so they insult him for his face and age :D
    Kids, it`s not everything. When you will grow up, you will understand
