Awww … I usually try to distance myself from celebrity couplings, because sooner or later, you just know they’re going to break up. And I can’t take that kind of heartbreak!
But Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, who co-star on “The Vampire Diaries” as vampires Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert, are just So.Cute together that I couldn’t help but fall in love with them as a couple.
And of course … now I have to deal with their break-up!
Somerhalder tweeted this morning: “A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: People change and forget to tell each other. -Lillian Hellman, playwright (1905-1984)”
The couple, who first took their romance public in 2011, are “consummate professionals,” an insider told Us Weekly, and “will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started.” Man, I sure hope so. Otherwise, things could get really awkward.
Last fall, Dobrev told Seventeen magazine how the romance started. “I didn’t want to be dating one of my costars — my goal on the show was to be professional,” she said. “But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long — which I did for a really, really long time.”
“The Vampire Diaries” is currently in its fourth season on The CW and has been renewed for a fifth season. Dobrev will spend the summer filming Fox’s “Let’s Be Cops,” which also stars “New Girl’s” Jake Johnson and “Happy Endings” Damon Wayans, Jr.
