From BuzzFoto.com: There never was a better looking couple! We spied Nina Dobrev and boyfriend Ian Somerhalder out in Soho walking hand in hand today (May 14), looking like two super-models ripped from the pages of a magazine!
Ian Somerhalder is ready to get down and dirty – in Fifty Shades of Grey.
The actor, who has steamed up quite a few scenes already on “The Vampire Diaries,” said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Monday that he’s more than thrilled at the suggestion he might be cast in the upcoming erotic film.
“I absolutely would be up for that,” Somerhalder said of playing Christian Grey, the businessman who convinces a young college graduate to be his S&M partner.
The rights to the raunchy novel, which was inspired by the Twilight Saga, were recently sold to Universal Pictures and Focus Features.
Somerhalder said he “just started reading” the book, but is already sure the role would be a great fit for him.
“That would be a pretty incredible thing, and hopefully that could pan out,” he told Seacrest.
He later added, “Yes, beyond the shadow of a doubt, I think that would be a phenomenal opportunity!”
Vampire Diaries is off the air until September, and that means it is time for some rest and relaxation for Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon Salvatore on the hit series. The actor recently revealed his romantic side in an interview, and those that want a sneak peek into the man and his relationship with girlfriend Nina Dobrev, who co-stars with him on the series, should take note of what Somerhalder considers romance.
According to Sugarscape, Ian Somerhalder said the following about romance and his own idea of it: “I flew to Paris once just to have lunch with a girl and it was romantic and wonderful but then it ended like that [clicks his fingers]. It was romantic but it didn’t go anywhere! I think real romance is something as simple as breakfast in bed. You can make even the smallest thing like that romantic it is just a matter of how you do it.”
Sounds like he has the right idea. He was able to win over Nina Dobrev after all. The couple has been busy as of late. They were recently seen jetting into LAX for a photo shoot for season three of the season, and production on Vampire Diaries is set to begin this month. Ian said the following on his Twitter last night: “Wheels down-LALA.Much to do VD starting tomorrow!Night you awesome people!”
Vampire Diaries is promising a lot of twists and trusts in season three including the return of Anna and Vicki to haunt Jeremy. Right now, it looks like Ian is enjoying his downtime from production as best as he can.

We reported not long ago how much we love Ian Somerhalder because not only does he play the gorgeous Damon in the Vampire Diaries he is also trying to change the world for the better through the Ian Somerhalder foundation.
His organisation tackles issues damaging the planet and its creatures. Yesterday Ian tweeted a link to a report detailing his foundation’s latest achievement! He wrote, “One last thing… you really make this life extraordinary. Look at what “WE” did…http://t.co/qAmDazv CONGRATS and thank you BC!”
So from now on we’re going to call him Ian Superman Somerhalder, okay?
The report outlined how Ian Somerhalder had been appalled after finding out that a British Columbian tourism company shot to death 100 sled dogs over two days to thin out the pack. It makes us so sad to type that.
In response Ian said, “These animals were brutally murdered and the individuals responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Period.”
He was so outraged that the Ian Somerhalder foundation and Change.org worked together to petition for harsher penalites for cruelty to animals in British Columbia. They collected over 60,000 signatures in a great swell of support.
Now the Ian Somerhalder foundation has announced the changes they wanted to be made to the British Columbia’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act have become law.
After keeping their relationship under wraps for a year, the costars put rumors to rest when they arrived hand-in-hand at the MuchMusic Video Awards Sunday night.
“Who am I most excited to see tonight?” Somerhalder, 32, smirked. “Nina Dobrev!”
His girlfriend, who turned heads in a strapless Georges Chakra Couture dress, was less forthcoming. “I’m excited to see Selena Gomez because she’s hosting and I’m really happy for her,” Dobrev, 22, said.
Will their relationship stand the test of time? “They are the real deal,” a pal of the couple recently told Us Weekly.
