While appearing on hip-hop artist/record producer Sway’s Sirius radio show this morning, Ian received calls from numerous fans, professing their love. In one instance, a woman called trying to get her 19-year-old daughter a date with the actor.
“I would love you for myself,” the caller said, “but I’m a 47-year-old mother.” Instead, she said she’d love for Ian to marry and make beautiful babies with her daughter.
“That’s a good mom,” said Ian, saying 19 might be a bit young for him. At 34, he’s technically closer in age to the mother than the college student. When Mr. Somerhalder found out the daughter is in college, he did admit, “Smart is sexy.” Yet he still wanted some time to think it over.
The next caller won Ian’s heart by saying she loved animals, the environment, and books. “I’ll be there in an hour,” he joked.
Well, at least we know what Ian looks for a girl: Someone who’s smart, loves animals, and doesn’t have an overly pushy mother.
