Oh, this is just mean. As if Fifty Shades of Grey fans weren't upset enough that Ian Somerhalder didn't land the role of Christian Grey, the actor has decided to taunt people by saying the sweetest thing possible to his ex-girlfriend, Nina Dobrev, on Twitter. AKA, he's making us fall in love with him even harder and making it damn near impossible to get over the fact that he's not Christian.
Why are you doing this, Ian? Why, why, why? I hate you. Just kidding, I love you! Will you marry me? Hahahahalolololol, only joking.
Unless you're into the idea. In that case, we should talk.
After he received an award for his efforts of promoting environmentalism, Ian tweeted a photo of himself with the award, along with the caption: "I'm crazy stupid proud to be in this. Thank you to all for this honor and I look forward to collaborating with all I met last night. Such a monumental moment in my life. Thanks for snapping this shot- photo credit @ninadobrev from set of the Vampire Diaries Love Ian."
Now, I know what you're thinking right now: "BFD? He gave his ex credit for taking a pic of him. Whoop-di-frickin-doo!" Well, wait. It gets better. After Ian's initial tweet, Nina congratulated him on, where else, Twitter, writing: "@Condenasttraveler Recognizes you for your relentless outreach+using it to change the world as you have+will continue to do. MAJOR Congrats!" And then Ian responded with: "@ninadobrev @Condenasttraveler Awwww! Thank you NINA-thank you for the love & support. Truly. Xo Ian." Adorbs, right? A civilized hashtag-laden relationship with his ex. What's not to love about this guy?
I guess eventually we're all just going to have to get over the fact that Charlie Hunnam is Christian Grey and not our beloved Ian. But, seriously, Charlie, step your game a bit. And for god's sake, get on Twitter, so we can see what exes you're talking to.
Do you wish Ian Somerhalder was Christian Grey?
