If for some insane reason you didn’t think Ian Somerhalder was a worldwide celebrity, it’s time to think again.
During the 2013 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, August 11, the Vampire Diaries star became a globally trending topic on Twitter. The 34-year-old actor arrived at the event looking as gorgeous as ever, then (unsurprisingly) nabbed the trophy for Choice TV Actor in a Fantasy/Sci-Fi.
Ian was certainly in good company on the Twitter trending list, as he was joined by fellow TCA winners Harry Styles and Lea Michele.
Lea — who won the surfboard for Choice TV Actress in a Comedy — gave one of the most heartfelt speeches we’ve heard in years. Joined onstage by her castmates Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Kevin McHale, Lea dedicated the award to her late boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith.
“Not exactly sure why I would be on this list trending worldwide right now on Twitter but you guys rock!” Ian exclaimed. “At least I'm on it with my friend @msleamichele ;).”
