Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev are everywhere at the moment. Literally. They’re like a bad case of Herpes. Not only is Somerhalder on his way to become Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, but he’s also enjoying the flustered attention of hundreds of thousands of fans. Dobrev, Somerhalder’s better half, is also being showered with adoration and attention, so much so that writer Julie Plec recently complimented her on her apparent awesomeness. To this, Dobrev replied on Twitter, “Thank you @julieplec, filming tonight’s episode was intense, one of the most intense shooting experiences I have ever had. You should be.”
According to Celebs Gather, ”Somerhalder managed to sneak away for a mini vacay without Dobrev. But, he returned with renewed enthusiasm for life. A few tweets expressed his appreciation for the downtime then he followed those up with well-wishes to fans.”
Aw, thank you, Ian! You shouldn’t have!
He tweeted last night, “Good night you beautiful world.” Obviously Somerhalder would find the world beautiful, because in effect, the world is his oyster. He has Hollywood running after him like rabid dogs on a Rabies expedition – the one thing every actor aspires for in his career.
Celebs Gather further reveals that Somerhalder and Dobrev “are back together making magic”. That’s lovely. (Please remind us to exclude Wizard sex from our upcoming meditation?) The mushy sentimentality of Dobrev and Somerhalder is enough to make us throw up in our mouths a little. We’re all for Hollywood power couples and undying love, but this is getting silly and slightly droll.
We hope to see Somerhalder smoldering on our silver screens at the end of 2013, but until then, he should tone it down a bit – we don’t want another Tom Cruise-Oprah-couch experience, do we?
No, no we don’t.
