Maggie Grace Still Keeps In Touch With Ex Ian Somerhalder
Maggie previously dated Ian Somerhalder, who played her brother on LOST. Surprisingly, Maggie recently revealed she still talks to her ex, who just got engaged to Nikki Reed.
“I haven’t dated too many actors. I did when I was really young, for a couple of years, but it’s nothing against actors. Ian Somerhalder and I are still very good friends. You can certainly reconcile schedules with actors but it takes some doing, and I just don’t have that energy,” she told Us Weekly.
Matthew is a filmmaker. He’s most famous for writing and producing 2012’s How to Make Money Selling Drugs.
