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!

the most interesting man @ 03/11/2014 at 4:45 pm

As Paul Wesley said : Ian is the most interesting man in the world !! Love him !

Ian Somerhalder is a beautiful Man in and outside! His Words really touched me and he’s so right. “The kids who are bullies and ******** make the experience not as wonderful. The thing we’re lacking the most in the world, is compassion.”

@Ana: Everyone is.

Oh another PDubber amongst us. “Attention seeker” People are giving him attention. Magazines want him. He’s smart, beautiful, talented and is changing the world. There are very few people as impressive him. Perhaps, even none. He has it all.

I’m sure the guy is good looking. But the pictures look so airbrushed it’s hard to see if that’s what he really looks like.

Not only does Ian looks beautiful here but I really love the comment about kids and bullies. I see so much bullying on twitter everyday. And I agree the world is a classroom. I do think education is important but it is not enough. The world has a lot to offer. This man is very astute and that to me is more important than looks. He’s the whole package.

OMG, he looks so hot! Sexiest man alive for sure

smart, sweet, handsome, hot, intelligent, compassionate :) this is our wonderful Ian :). changed my life, otherwise, you’d better see the world. His words – “breath, smile – repeat” help in the most difficult moments. For the fans loving, patient – we are his friends. The most humble and most grateful of famous people. Loving your wonderful family and friends. He has my love, respect and support to end of the world and one day longer. Thank you Ian for everything :) #proud #somerholic


@sarah: he’s even more beautiful in real Life!!!

Oh please @ 03/11/2014 at 4:55 pm

@Ana: Oh Ana, Paul Wesley is getting older too, they all are, we all are, and Nina’s heart didn’t look too broken when she was flaunting and boasting her single and free happiness on Twitter last Summer about two weeks after the break up. Maybe Bradley, Derek, Julian, Liam etc broke her heart too….shame on them. She’s living the life she wants. Her and her 33 year old hairdresser companion, College boys galore to rub against. Don’t you have anything better to hate on Ian with?


so trueeeee @ 03/11/2014 at 4:56 pm
