When Ian Somerhalder sat down for an interview with Defy magazine, he had serious matters on his mind.
The “Vampire Diaries” star has become an activist, teaming up with Conservation International. As he explained, “Watching BP’s oil destroy my home and one of the most beautiful bodies of water on the planet, I realized that feeling of helplessness should not go unnoticed — and that I, myself, nor my family, nor my children, nor anyone on this planet should ever feel that helpless again.”
There’s nothing quite as attractive as a man who’s willing to stand up for what he believes in. It’s clear why this is such an important cause in the actor’s life.
