Ian Somerhalder Tweets About ‘Change’

With nearly 4 million Twitter followers, Ian clearly has a large social media presence, and one of his most recent tweets is raising fans’ eyebrows.

“A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: People change and forget to tell each other,” Ian tweeted May 9, attributing the quote to playwright Lillian Hellman.

This was, in all likelihood, a completely innocent tweet — but in this day-and-age of over-analysis, you can imagine the fans are going nuts over it.

Nina Dobrev: Why She Dated Ian Somerhalder

Nina and Ian have done a very good job of keeping their relationship private, but in a candid interview with Seventeen in Sept. 2012, Nina finally opened up about dating her co-star.

“I didn’t want to be dating one of my co-stars,” Nina told the mag. “My goal on the show was to be professional. 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.”
