Actor Ian Somerhalder is known to many fans as the heartthrob of the hit television show "The Vampire Diaries" and for being the on again/off again boyfriend of the beautiful actress Nina Dobrev. However, the actor has been in the public eye recently for his fight against the illegal ivory trade and desire to protect elephants and his public stance has made him even more popular with fans, in particular females.
The gorgeous actor was photographed walking through the Ronald Reagan National Airport on Monday June 23, in Washington, D.C. looking extremely fit and strong as his biceps bulged in his black shirt. He is in Washington to go in front of congress to testify on behalf of his charity, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation about the importance of banning ivory sales because of the threat it poses to elephants.
Television and movie viewers love Ian Somerhalder because of his looks and his outstanding acting talent but his commitment to this cause has enhanced his popularity with fans to exceptional heights on social media and many entertainment insiders anticipate that fans will show their loyalty and appreciation by making their way to his next movie.
In early July 2014 his movie "The Anomaly" will be on the big screens and he will be playing a starring role in the science-fiction movie as a former solder who is taken captive and finds himself in the back of a van and learns that he only has a few moments to figure out how he got there.
For most people there are many reasons why they will go see a film or will not and public perception is often a determining factor and there are few actors looked at more favourably at this moment than this actor.
Ian Somerhalder is one of the 'hottest' actors in Hollywood not just for his television show but his charitable efforts when not on the show and as many people can attest there are very few things more attractive in an individual than someone who fights for a cause when they do not have to.
