8 Famous Women Who Couldn't Resist Ian Somerhalder's Sexy Smolder

Ian Somerhalder is currently expecting his first child with wife Nikki Reed, but long before Nikki came along, the 38-year-old actor had a habit of dating his costars. Aside from Nina Dobrev, it's unclear how serious Ian's relationships were with these women, but regardless, here are the famous ladies who just couldn't seem to resist Ian's sexy smolder (can you blame them?).

Ian and Kate first met when they costarred in the 2000 Dawson's Creek spinoff Young Americans. They reunited a year later when they filmed The Rules of Attraction and that's when sparks flew. The two dated in the Summer of 2002, though their romance fizzled out rather quickly.

The duo first met on the set of Lost in 2004 and began dating after they both got killed off on the show in 2006. While they never officially confirmed their romance, Maggie mentioned Ian in an interview in August 2006, saying, "Ian's great, I adore him, although I'm only 22 — far too young to even think about having a serious relationship." The two eventually split in 2007, and in 2015, Maggie told New You magazine that they're "still very good friends."

Ian and Nina met back in 2009 when they started filming The Vampire Diaries together and dated for three years before breaking up in May 2013. Despite their split, the two continued to work together on The Vampire Diaries and have remained friends.

In 2015, Nina opened up about their relationship, telling E! News, "I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship. I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now."
