Over the past few months Canadian actress, Nina Dobrev, has graced the cover of FASHION Magazine, Ocean’s Drive and her latest cover shoot, Seventeen Magazine. The 23-year-old Vampire Diaries star sports fun, youthful looks in the spread of the October issue. Nina Dobrev answered plenty of intriguing questions in her interview including one about her romantic relationship with her co-star, Ian Somerhalder:
“The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said ‘Nina: Why she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars.’ And then cut to two years later…it’s funny that I said that, but you know what? It was honestly what I believed at the time. I didn’t want to be dating one of my costars—my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long—which I did for a really, really long time.”
On how she copes with living in the public eye:
“I try not to read best dressed lists or anything like that. For every good thing, there will often be a not-so-nice thing people would say. My mom sends me lots of messages like, ‘You’re standing next to Kate Winslet! Oh my god, I love Kate Winslet!’”
On why girls nights are important in between work (something we can all relate to):
“Girls weekend with the Vampire Diaries girls has become a big deal! It’s our quality time. It’s so much fun to unload and not feel guilty complaining or talking about your insecurities or bonding over things that you thought you were on your own about. When we get there, we go to dinner or cook dinner together, watch movies, lie on the beach, and take tons of pictures.”
The October issue hits stands on September 11th!
