When Ian Somerhalder (Damon) was backstage during The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week, he did a quick interview with one of Jay’s (also very cute) reporters. (Um, more Smolderhotter Somerhalder video? We’ll take it!)

When the cute interviewer asked Ian what it’s like to have a ton of girls screaming for him, he suavely said, “It’s kind of the coolest thing in the world.” Always one to praise his fans, he added,”I kinda have the best fans on the planet.” Aww, stop it!

Ian also took a moment to plug his new environmental/humanitarian/everything philanthropy foundation, The Ian Somerhalder Foundation. If you’ve been living under a rock (or you know, not visiting Wetpaint lately), you can read about the foundation and check out the official site here.

Excuse us while we swoon over the cuteness.
