Ian Somerhalder Insults Nina Dobrev’s Love Scenes: Throws Shade So She’ll Reject ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 8 Return Role?

Ian Somerhalder Insults Nina Dobrev’s Love Scenes: Throws Shade So She’ll Reject ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 8 Role?

Nina Dobrev’s return to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ is probably being blocked by none other than her ex, Ian Somerhalder. There’s new speculation that the actress wants nothing to do with his ex, especially after he threw shade at her for their on-screen love scenes while she was still on the show.

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder’s break up has always spurred plenty of emotions for ‘The Vampire Diaries’ fans, especially now that the series depends on the actress to come back for their final season of the show. Nina has yet to confirm whether or not she’s reprising her role as Elena Gilbert after quitting the show back during season 8. And one of the reasons why she might not be coming back is because of the shade Ian threw at her by claiming that their on-screen love scenes during ‘The Vampire Diaries’ were nothing more than cute.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ian hinted that it was difficult to separate his personal feelings for Nina with his professional ones, especially when they were expected to shoot love scenes together. Explaining how hard it is for him to get into character and make out in front of a camera, Ian said, “It is cute to see them and their interactions together.

I think anyone — whether it be Nina or Paul or myself — anyone will tell you it’s typically going to be a lot more fun to play the bad guy, the bad boy, the bad girl because they’re more dynamic, they’re more fun. But it is cute to see Damon and Elena and their interaction. Damon is just smitten, he’s in love and it’s cute, you know?”

Surely, no one wants to hear their boyfriend tell the world that their love scenes – whether it’s on or off screen – is ‘cute.’ Sexy, sultry, hot: all would have been better words. Ian calling his love scenes with Nina ‘cute’ just means he couldn’t care less about her feelings while also hinting that the chemistry between them was dead.

It’s no wonder that Nina Dobrev doesn’t want to return to ‘The Vampire Diaries.’ The 27-year-old actress doesn’t need her ex-boyfriend belittling her efforts or her acting for that matter too, especially since ‘The Vampire Diaries’ success depends on her so much right now.

What do you think, CDL readers? Is Nina Dobrev not returning to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ because of her Ian Somerhalder drama along with the shade he threw at her? Drop us a line with your thoughts in our comments section below.
