When you’re a sexy CW star like Ian Somerhalder, getting mobbed by fans is a regular occurrence. The Vampire Diaries star is always gracious, though, often spotted signing autographs and snapping with photos wherever he goes, and even corresponding with some on Twitter.
However, not all fans are gentle and sweet with Ian — some get physical. Though he’s constantly surrounded by security when at conventions and big public appearances, sometimes there are sneaky people who can slip through the cracks, and Ian recently revealed a horrifying story on LIVE! With Kelly and Michael about a Comic-Con attack.
“Paul Wesley and I were walking to the little boys’ room. Paul was over in an alcove, so when I went to leave, there was like this 6-foot Wonder Woman there and she was beautiful and had this great energy about her,” Ian said, making her seem innocent enough. But then things got crazy.
“She literally grabbed me by the throat, slammed me against the wall, and held me there and just said, ‘I love you. I love. I love you.’” he recalled with wide eyes.
His response? “Oh, that’s incredible!” he claims he told her, re-enacting how he was gasping for air as he spoke. “I didn’t want to have to call the security guys,” he admitted. “She let me down.”
Apparently, she followed him and Paul to the bathroom, slipping through their security guys, and waited for him to be alone. Thankfully no harm was done to the smoldering actor, and hey — he got a great story out of the scary experience.
