Ian Somerhalder sat down with Parade Magazine recently to talk about his causes, his career and his stomach.

The Vampire Diaries star started the IS Foundation to educate and empower people to come together for a better planet and its inhabitats.

“Being from the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, I learned early on that there’s a very delicate eco-system and a specific balance to life,” Somerhalder said.   “If we can empower, activate and educate young people, we have an entire generation who will understand that taking care of the planet is the only way to go forward.”

So, how did Nina Dobrev become Somerhalder’s off-screen girlfriend?  Probably by cooking for him…

“Compassion, intelligence…and food,” Somerhalder listed as ways to capture his heart.  “The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and I am no exception!” 

While the fans (present company included) are still getting over Jeremy’s death, is there a light at the end of the tunnel?  Will Silas be revealed?  Is there really a cure?

“There’s a lot of levity in the midst of all the doom and gloom and death and blood…” Somerhalder said cryptically.

Not a good answer, Damon!

Moving on…Will our dreamy vampire play Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey???

“I think everybody in this town is up for this movie in some way, shape or form. It’s such a big thing now, and I just think E.L. James created a really cool, dynamic story that people are really enjoying.”

And yes, he gets what all the hub-bub is about

“I started reading the first one, and it is…well, there’s some storytelling there, buddy!”
