Va va voom! Nina Dobrev, star of CW’s The Vampire Diaries, appears on the September cover of Cosmopolitan magazine and chats about her newly single status, playing Elena on The Vampire Diaries and her friendship with actress Julianne Hough.
This weekend, Nina let her hair down as she partied away in the sun a Lollapalooza festival, posting a series of videos to let everyone know how much she was enjoying herself. Posting clips Dobrev allowed everyone to see her partying and dancing away under the summer sun as she let loose at the festival.
Check out some of the clips she posted, as well has highlights from her Cosmopolitan interview below.
On her friendship with Julianne Hough: “It’s been cool to find an active buddy – there are lots of girlie girls around. We don’t talk about makeup; we talk about life.”
Is it nice to have a friend who’s also gone through a breakup? “That’s not what our friendship is about. Unfortunately, that’s how it’s perceived, but there’s more to us. People aren’t defined by their relationships. The whole point is being true to yourself and not losing yourself in relationships, whether romances or friendships.”
On whether she puts a lot of pressure on herself: “Maybe. I can take a lot of pressure though. I’m constantly trying to make myself better, to learn more. I didn’t finish college, so I feel like I’m always having to prove myself. I don’t want to feel like the smallest person in the room.”
On what attracts her to a guy: “You either have chemistry or you don’t, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy’s mind and humor and talent. I need to get to know all those things before I fall for someone. I’m not a one-night-stand kind of girl. I’m a relationship girl.”
On her type: “I’m progressive in some ways, old-fashioned in others. I like it when guys hold the door open and are sweet and thoughtful. The guys on our show are really good at that. A man in a suit looking put together and dapper is very attractive, but I also kind of like the I-just-rolled-out-of-bed, a-little-bit-of-scruff, effortless, not-trying-hard-but-still-sexy guy. If a guy spends more time looking in the mirror than I do, that’s problem!”
