Ian Somerhalder hangs out at an event for denim brand John John on Thursday (May 31, 2012) in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I have added 9 photos of Ian from the event in to the photo gallery.
Ian Somerhalder is working with Ketel One and GQ for the “A Gentleman’s Call: In Pursuit of an Idea that Matters”!
The program, a nationwide search that champions the lifestyle of the modern gentleman, is inviting hopeful participants to present an idea or inspiration that will raise society’s behavioral bar.

Ian Somerhalder has sealed his green credentials by becoming a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme.
A longtime campaigner for eco-friendly initiatives, will help host World Environment Day on June 5th, 2012 as his first official task in his new role.
He will join supermodel Gisele Bundchen and actor Don Cheadle – who are also Goodwill Ambassadors for the U.N. – in encouraging fans to get involved in environmental activities, such as neighbourhood clean-ups, walking to work or planting trees.
In a video promoting Wed, Somerhalder says, “When you do your part for the environment, everyone wins.”
Ian Somerhalder visited the E! News studio (see more of him on tonight’s E! News at 7 pm!) and Kristin Dos Santos had a few minutes with him to talk The Vampire Diaries season finale. Read the entire interview over at E!Online.
1. Stefan and Damon Strike a Deal! And me no likely. Ian reveals: “The brothers both agree, ‘If she goes for you, I’ll leave town. And if she goes for me, you leave town. So this doesn’t get weird.’ And they both agree on it. And that’s what’s so cool is that by virtue of this decision the boys have ultimately become so insanely close. And I love that I think it’s really cool that that’s what happens.” Right. Fine. But keep your hiney and your brother’s hiney firmly planted in Mystic Falls, mmm kay? Thanks.
2. The Love Triangle Is “Ending.” Ian tells us: “Elena makes a decision. Well, after Damon dies she only has one decision.” Then after a long, excruciating pause in which I beat his chest to make him stop, he let out a hearty laugh and said, “Who knows? Maybe. We’ll see!”
E!Online chatted with Ian Somerhalder about how he could come up with a plan to make his bloodsucking Vampire Diaries character Damon earth-friendly. Read the entire interview here.
Somerhalder wants to trade in Damon’s 1967 Camaro for a luxury hybrid—a $100,000 Fisker Karma to be exact.
“The Camaro is a cool car, but you stand behind the exhaust too long and you get sick,” Somerhalder tells me exclusively. “Damon has a lot of means to get the car. It looks like a Camaro, but it’s bigger and more beautiful and it’s completely green. It’s electric for the first 50 miles! You’ll have to fill your tank like two times a year!”
Damon’s reasons to go green are quite obvious, Somerhalder insists. “You have this guy who’s lived almost two centuries,” he said. “And he realizes, I’m stuck here for the next millennium. I’ve watched the degradation of our earth and our planet, watched the population grow. I have to be around for the next thousand years, I might as well take care of the place. Plus, this car is as sexy as hell.”
In celebration of Earth Day 2012, Edward Norton has teamed up with online coupon giant Groupon to give away $50,000 in donations to three environmental charities. Leveraging his fundraising site Crowdrise, the 42-year-old will dole out $25K to whatever charity raises the most cash for an environmental initiative. Second place will score $15K and third will take home $10K.
Groups have until May 15th to kick their support networks into high gear and beat out the competition. Currently, the official page for the charity contest has the Irvine Nature Center ($710) leading other organizations like Massai Wilderness Conservation ($530), Surfrider Foundation ($440), National Wildlife Humane Society ($365) and the Ian Somerhalder Foundation ($290).
As we’ve seen in the past, expect Somerhalder and his huge network of fans and supporters to rally that total into the top three. I’d be really surprised if his foundation didn’t walk away with something out of Norton’s purse.
