Ian Somerhalder and his piercing blue eyes grace the latest issue of Glamour magazine. The 33-year-old star of the CW hit The Vampire Diaries plays 170-year-old lovesick vampire Damon Salvatore. He chatted about dating and a slew of other topics with the magazine. Here are a few highlights:
On Pets: “I have a lot of little paws in my house,”
On the grand gesture: He even went to Paris just for a lunch date. “Flying across the ocean for one meal was pretty awesome. It paid off!”
On not being in to the macho act: “If you are respectful and nice and charming to a woman, it’s a better approach. And I don’t know what women want. No one know what women want!”
On what is true to his heart: The Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which he created to give young people the power to save the planet themselves. “Kids are meeting in coffee shops and basements figuring out what’s unsustainable in their communities,” he says. “That’s the future.”
