The Vampire DiariesIan Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) dove into a pool — fully clothed, unfortunately — for a photoshoot with Lifestyle Mirror magazine. Posing in a number of fetching ensembles, sipping a glass of liquor or tousling his hair. 

"Humor is a medicine for pain," Ian explains in the interview. “I’ve found that when you have fun with whatever you’re doing, life is just better.” Good advice, Mr. Smolderhotter.

Then Ian begins talking about his baby, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and how social media has helped him build a multinational organization. “I think it’s the most powerful force on the planet right now,” says Ian.

Want an interesting fact about Damon? Ian tells the magazine that he based a lot of Damon’s behavior on TVD in Season 1 off Cary Grant. He definitely got the charm down pat! Ian goes on to say that he would’ve loved to work with the legendary actor. We don’t know if we could handle that much attractiveness in one place at the same time.

It looks like Ian had a lot of fun during the photoshoot and talked about some deep issues. We can’t wait to read the full interview and drool over those pics.
