“I'm en route San Diego-watch out... I can't wait to give you a kiss #ComicCon2014 or #ComicCon Pucker up!” Ian tweeted on his way to the convention, causing quite a stir in the Twitterverse and amongst Con-goers. According to this interview he did with ET Online, “I was supposed to have one kiss, but I ended up having, like, 30.” We’re thinking that number could have been a lot higher.
Of course, we weren’t all lucky enough to run into Ian at Comic-Con, but ET Online managed to get Ian to deliver a kiss on camera. “For those of you waiting for your kiss from @iansomerhalder, watch this #VampireDiaries #ETnow #SDCC,” they captioned the Instagram video that has Ian giving the camera an open-mouthed smooch. He also gave one lucky fan a “Skype kiss” during the subsequent interview. We’re not sure how many kisses that is up to, but let’s just say Ian Somerhalder is a generous man.
Apparently, all that kissing was tiring! Ian closed out the weekend in San Diego with a picture of himself slumped, exhausted, against the floor. “Barely made it out of Comic Con! Wow, what love I get and feel from you all. Thank you from being such a huge part of my life. Love, Ian,” Ian captioned the hilarious shot.
Could we love this guy more? Absolutely not.
