It’s no surprise that Vampire Diaries stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are pretty much the biggest bros on the face of the Earth — hey, they do co-star on one of the hottest TV shows ever and spend tons of time together. But when it comes to talent, we think these two are pretty much tit-for-tat because they continue to knock our socks off every week. But does Ian think Paul is better than himself?

Yesterday, Ian took to Twitter to share a special project he had been working on with his Ian Somerhalder Foundation — something that blows his mind — and one fan decided to get very controversial with the Smouldypants.

“@iansomerhalder Paul is better than you,” the Twitter user proclaimed. Oh snap! Just when you thought Ian couldn’t get any nicer, he decided to brush his shoulders off and play along with the fan’s little mind games, answering, “I'm sure he is ;).”

We have to say that Ian pretty much takes the cake for being the nicest guy we know. Check out him with his precious little cat Moke in People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue — it doesn’t get nicer than that. It’s good to know that Ian is pretty much the exact opposite of his compulsive, snarky, and dangerous on-screen persona of Damon Salvatore. Constant swooning!

What do you think about Ian’s proclamation? Hit the comments and let us know!
