Ian Somerhalder, His Biceps and Pet Dog Lead This Weekend’s Star Sightings

Working theory: a man’s hotness is elevated up to three times if he is with a pet dog.

Proof: The above photo of Ian Somerhalder packing up his car with an adorable canine companion. What could’ve been a perfect image is made all the better with a happy German Shepherd by Ian’s side.

It’s no secret that the Vampire Diaries star is an animal lover. Earlier this week, the actor shared an Instagram photo with a heartfelt caption praising both his girlfriend Nikki Reed and pet dog Nietzche.




“Congrats to our little Neitczhe here-1 year ago today, to the minute, you brought 5 beautiful puppies into this world-thank you for your amazing contribution to all of our lives,” he wrote.

And for his girlfriend, he added, “@iamnikkireed your recent work with Gilt benefiting the @aspca is truly truky extraordinary. Thank you for giving so much of your life and for being a strong voice for those whom can speak.”

Ladies and gentlemen, it doesn’t get anymore swoon-worthy than that. Launch the gallery above for more of this weekend’s hottest star sightings!
