We love that Ian Somerhalder has a fun side! The handsome Vampire Diaries star likes to participate in #throwbackthursdays on Twitter and Instagram, and this week he posted a photo taken during the filming of Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You”!

Ian tweeted that he found a photo that shows him in his prom tuxedo splashed with special effects blood. The under-the-weather actor was trying to power through his scenes with a medical aid. “Damon stabbed, Ian sick sick sick sucking peroxide through a nebulizer,” he wrote. “Comical sight behind the closed doors of my dressing room.”

Aw, poor Ian! But we still think he looks sexy in a tux, goofy face or not. And we love seeing behind-the-scenes photos from the set. Check out that prominent Salvatore ring on his right hand. So cool!

Hopefully Somerhalder will post some photos from Season 5 that will give us some hints about the plot, although we’re honestly happy just looking at his face.
