Ian Somerhalder is a sexy tease—and he knows exactly how to get our heart beat up! The sexy part-time vampire (and soon to be BDSM master) is auctioning off signed photos from Colossal Partners to benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which works towards animal welfare and habitat restoration. Fans can choose from two photos, which will be personalized and signed by the master himself. “You look delicious” is my favorite photo. The other one says “My love for you will never die,” and is decidedly less provocative.
Ian shared the link with fans, adding, “Want a signed Valentine’s Day Card from me&do some good? Ladies talk to your boys boys, this may make your day easier ;)” It’s true—a lot of guys find the romantic holiday stressful, so why not just skip the nonsense and indulge her passion for a man that isn’t you?
Fans of Vampire Diaries can also purchase signed photos from Joseph Morgan, who plays Klaus. “Give me your heart,” one reads, in obvious homage to Klaus’ brutal slaying of twelve hybrids (and really, his slaying of anyone who looks at him wrong. But I don’t think I’d protest too much if he tried to rip my heart out . . . that accent!). Joseph also offers “Be my bloody valentine.” Fans can also order apparel emblazoned with their faces. If this sale is any indication, 2013 is going to be a great year!
This news comes on the wake of tons of Fifty Shades of Grey casting speculation. Though we’re pretty sure Ian is legally ordered to keep his mouth shut about his involvement, he’s working hard to send out major hints—reading a movie script on set, auctioning off a copy of the book—and fans are eating it up! It may be years before we see Ian with a riding crop in his hands, but for now feast your eyes on his smouldering signed picture—which sports his handwriting and a flirty “xo” after his signature. Will you order one for yourself, or a “friend”?
