‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Ian Somerhalder Turns 32


Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder turns 32 today, and he doesn’t want you to buy him a present. Instead the actor has requested that fans donate to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation which helps support our habitat and aid our furry friends.

“Instead of gifts this year, my birthday wish is that we come together and raise funds to support projects that protect our habitat and nurture our furry friends. If people truly feel like giving me a gift for my birthday this year, I hope you will consider giving a donation to the foundation. Giving to the foundation would be the best gift I could ever wish for, it would give us a chance to make change together.” Somerhalder wrote on his foundation’s website.

Twitter has been a buzz all morning with fans wishing Somerhalder a happy birthday, and his Vampire Diaries cast mates have even gotten in on the action with the following messages.

Nina Dobrev: HAPPYBIRTHDAY @IANSOMERHALDER ! Everyone help make Ians Bday Wish come true+Help by Donating to the Foundation!
