Nina Dobrev on Ian Somerhalder: I Tried to Fight the Connection For So Long
Now there’s one more reason to look forward to October! Not only does it signal the return of The Vampire Diaries (Season 4 starts October 11), but Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) is also Seventeen magazine’s cover girl for the month.
In addition to taking lots of gorgeous photos for a fall spread (so many sweaters!), Nina also spoke with Seventeen about hanging with her TVD gal pals and her co-star/boyfriend Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore).
“The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said 'Nina: Why she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars.' And then cut to two years later,” Nina told the magazine. “It's funny that I said that, but you know what? It was honestly what I believed at the time. I didn’t want to be dating one of my co-stars — my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long — which I did for a really, really long time.”
Love conquers all, even professionalism. But hey, no one can blame the girl for not being able to resist Ian!
