Ian Somerhalder Talks 50 Shades of Grey, Who He’d Never Date, and How to Be Charitable
This morning we were daydreaming about what it would be like to date Ian Somerhalder (Damon), (A romantic dinner followed by some love bites?! Maybe?! Please?!) when we stumbled upon an interview he gave MTV about the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. And, while being a do-gooder may not seem related to how-to-nab-Damon, it actually is. You see, they asked him this all-important question: “Would you ever date a lady who doesn’t volunteer? Is that a big deal breaker for you?” To which Ian replied, “I would say absolutely that would be a deal breaker.” So, now that we know we have to get active to win this vamp’s heart, how do we go about doing so? Not to worry, because Ian’s got that one covered, too. “The easiest thing is to share ISF through social media,” he said. “Another thing to do is start an ISF community group. … You can also connect us to leaders of change. Essentially what we need you to do is be our eyes, ears and mouths. There’s a lot you can do, literally, from your fingertips.” Apparently, it’s not just us Ian’s trying to recruit to the cause, but it seems that even sexy, fictional characters have their place at the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. When asked if 50 Shades of Grey’s Christian Grey would be the volunteering type, Ian answered, “Of course he'd volunteer for our foundation. Mr Grey is a sucker for opportunity and challenge... as a volunteer? Mr. Grey would be able to harness the corporate world to serve and obey the mission of the foundation, and he'd do it with a sparkle in his eyes and a smile across his mouth.”
Any organization that Ian and Christian are a part of, we want in on! Check out the ISF website to see how you can get involved, too.
