Ian Somerhalder Praises “Inspiring” Young Fans at 2013 Teen Choice Awards (VIDEO)

Handsome Vampire Diaries’ star Ian Somerhalder — that’s right, The Smolderhalder — expressed his appreciation for his younger fans on the red carpet for the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. Ian told E! that his teen fans are “really incredible.”

“The youth component of this world … is the most underutilized, undervalued, and truly almost underutilized part of the world. When you see the power of these individuals, it’s off the chain.” Ian also said, “Millennials don’t wanna just read news anymore, they wanna know what they can do about it. They inspire us all day long … their voice is so much louder than ours!”

Wow! The 34-year-old actor/activist seems to really appreciate his young fans, which is a pretty refreshing view for a celeb to have, right?
