Ian Somerhalder: Fashion World is Less Creative for Talent (Exclusive)

Ian Somerhalder: Fashion World is Less Creative for Talent (Exclusive)

Ian Somerhalder is smoldering sexy in this new image from his photo shoot for CBS Watch magazine’s April 2014 issue, provided exclusively to

Here is what the 35-year-old Vampire Diaries actor had to share with the mag:

On his early modeling career: “In the fashion business, if you’re a creative director or you’re a designer, it’s a very creative business and you can drive it. As talent in the fashion world, it’s significantly more vapid.”

On earning his self-guided degree in humanity: “You don’t have to be in an institution to study. The world has been a really cool classroom that we’re all in together, sort of bouncing around, learning, failing often and passing sometimes. And just like in school, the kids who are nice make the experience a lot better. The kids who are bullies and assholes make the experience not as wonderful. The thing we’re lacking the most in the world, and yet what everyone wishes for, is compassion.”

The spring issue of CBS Watch is out next week!

    This is so photo-shopped he doesn’t even look like a person. It’s more like a painting. I get that he’s a handsome man, but these photo-shoots don’t show how he really looks.

    Everyone’s getting older or they’re dead.

    He’s an amazing man who deserves everything in his life. He spends his free time meeting people and working for us, for the entire world, and he’s also a talented actor. Few people can be called idols but he’s definitely one.

    So proud of him <3


  • Mel

    @Jessie: I disagree. I mean all shoots are Photo-shopped but Ian is literally flawless in real Life. I met him and he’s just wow. Mind blowing beautiful.

    To all of you saying “he’s getting older”, “he’s aging”… guess what? We ALL are, we all get older every single day, so stop using that as some kind of insult because at the same time you are trying to insult him you are insulting yourself as well. Everyone gets older and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    Apart from that, Ian isn’t just his looks, he is also the humble, intelligent, generous and compassionate human that he is, trying to make the world a better place for everybody. What are you trying to do to help? Let’s see if you achieve what he’s done by the time you are his age.

    His acting career is going no where, I guess a modeling would be an alternative?
