Ian Somerhalder Covers 'Icon' Magazine Men's Issue 2013

Ian Somerhalder looks super suave on the cover of Icon magazine‘s Men’s Issue 2013.

Here is what the 34-year-old Vampire Diaries actor had to share with the mag:

On his hit vampire themed show: “I obviously feel wonderful about the show. It has defined my life for the last four years and will continue to. It is multi-faceted, you know? You get a bit of creative fulfillment, which is incredible, and you also have a tremendous amount of talented people around that become like family. And ultimately, due to the success, we have this exposure level that allows us to influence people. When you have that ear of the public you are able to use that for positive things. I feel like I am able to do that with the great fan base of the show.”

On his foundation: “It’s not all about saving animals and saving the planet. It’s really about the human condition – what is it that makes us tick and allows environmental degradation and destruction of our planet. These are things that align with me as a person, not just a foundation.”

On being a workaholic: “There really is no off time for me. You know, I’m really grateful for television and I like the commitment. Of course I want to do more film. I’d really like to get to the point where I can act in a film and direct a film every year. And of course, enjoy myself. I’ve been on the grind for 10 months out of the year for the last six years. It is a great problem to have, but it takes a toll on you.”
