Altruism: the principle or practice of concern for the welfare of others. Ian Somerhalder does it, birds do it, bees do it, and even educated fleas do it – Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, The Hamburglar and a nervous cannibal do NOT do it.
Ian Somerhalder, the blue-eyed doll-man and part-time vampire, loves a drop of altruism in his morning green tea – it’s like a laxative for the soul. People find Smoulderhalder hot for some or other obscene reason. It could be his “EHRMAGERD SAVE EVERYONE!” philosophy or it could just be his eyes. We’re leaning towards the latter, but what do we know? We just write about celebrities.
Just in time for his first day of shooting The Vampire Diaries Season 6, the former Madame Tussauds captive took a selfie with his cat, Moke, and posted it on Instagram to show the world how much he loves cats. (SIDE NOTE: The writer of this article has seven cats). Somerhalder’s fans went wild – some even danced naked under the moon – after he uploaded the super adorable, Somerhaldersexy selfie. And then he went and destroyed it all with a self-indulgent caption:
“Being a Dad… Morning vet visit with Moke before heading to my 1st Day of work for SEASON 6 of The Vampire Diaries! Wow, how did this happen??? I’ll tell you how: you all are the greatest audience on the planet! Thank you for all of your love and support over these years- none of this could possible without you! See you at Comic Con, then Teen Choice Awards, Then Emmy weekend, then in my dreams. Huge love to you all! Love, Ian”
In his dreams? Does he take Magic Mushrooms at night?
Nina Dobrev, Somerhalder’s on-screen, off-screen, on-off ex-girlfriend, should have broken up with him when the recurring fan-nightmares started. But no, she had to fall in love with his altruism and his really, really blue eyes.
We leave you with an excerpt from Somerhalder’s Vampire Diary:
“Dear Vampire Diary
I cried on a wall last night, because I thought of all the stuff going on in the world and it made me sad. Like really sad. I want bacon. Where can I get bacon?
I should totes post a selfie with my cat on Instagram tomorrow.
He’s saving the world one selfie at a time. Show some love in the comments, won’t you? Let us know what you think about Ian “I.LOVE.EVERYONE” Somerhalder.
