The gorgeous vampire admits making out with girls is definitely a perk of his job — but don’t ask him to bite your neck!

Ian Somerhalder admits he’s a vicious killer — well sort of. The 32-year-old Louisiana native appeared on MTV’s The Seven April 9 and reveals why playing Damon Salvatore on Vampire Diaries character is the best gig in town!

“I get to make out and bite a bunch of girls,” Ian grins. “But fans ask for a little biting of the neck and it’s a huge legality issue.”

But Ian says the bad-guy role is definitely more fun for him as he makes a shocking comparison!

“These characters are predators, they are vicious killers at heart,” he says. “It’s like being a drug addict by virtue of the fact that you’re fighting an urge at all times of your life.”

So what’s next for this on-screen bad boy?

“Damon is finally starting to realize that he’s not the biggest, baddest dude around,” Ian says. “And now he is doing the one thing he knows he has to do, which is protect his family … protect the girl that he loves.”
