Every year the Genesis Awards honors individuals of the media and entertainment industries for raising public awareness about animal welfare issues. This year, Ian Somerhalder was awarded for his dedication to animal advocacy and spreading the word about issues like shark finning, the Canadian seal hunt, fur in fashion, and endangered species. The Vampire Diaries star also founded the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which aims to ‘empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures.’
Man, Nina Dobrev is one lucky girl! Not only is her boyfriend broodingly handsome, but he totally loves animals! How cute is that?? Ian recently posed for InStyle Man Russia and, to no surprise, looked completely gorgeous. Jeebus, his body is sick. Can we say, break me off a piece of that?! Again, Nina is a very lucky girl.
An all new Vampire Diaries airs this Thursday. SO excited!
