Ian Somerhalder in Los Angeles

Posted on December 11, 2012

Okay, sure. It’s tough getting off a plane only to be faced with bright lights and cameras. There’s not much about the life of a celebrity that evokes sympathy in our hearts, but even bitches like us can admit, that must suck most of the time.

Ian Somerhalder at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport).

On the other hand, we’ve never felt anything but waves of douchiness emanating from this guy and these pictures aren’t really helping to alleviate that. But hey, nice carry-on bag, Ian.

    loving the shoes

       Just what I was going to post. Great shoes.

  • mike__tv

    Agreed, he suffers from inescapable perceived douchiness. And believe it or not, ‘The Vampire Diaries  is a surprising good show that’s worthy of your time. Avoid season 1 though. 

    • And Ian is great on it; usually by grandstanding and scenery chewing, but he has a lot of fun doing it, it’s in character for Damon, and he can sell the sincere emotional stuff when called to as well. I think he just likes appearing a little badass IRL.

      • Jecca2244

        he is probably my favorite character on the show! love him way more than Stefan.

    • Really? I thought S1 was pretty good once they dropped the last Twilight winks and nudges. It’s Klaus that bores me to tears.

  • alyce1213

    Wait — isn’t this that Zac Efron person or something?  Equally douchey.

  • Zippypie

    It seems that every guy I have seen with those brown shoes with the cream soles has the douche aura.

  • hughman

    The woman third pic down is me about that hat. “WTF IS THAT?”

  • Imasewsure

    There’s also the “I have been pretty forever” syndrome that he has to suffer with…. I like his shoes but I like her boots even better (I’ll take her frumpy cardigan too, thank you very much)

  • BeeBeauNYC

    You guys also strongly dislike henleys, which may be adding to your overall distaste for him here. I think he’s kinda dreamy; I love his piercing eyes.

    • Ditto, he’s just having a squinty moment.

    • he looks a bit like a cross-eyed zombie here, but you can’t deny his amazing bone structure

  • PastryGoddess

    Love those shoes too

  • kimmeister

    I think he looks perfectly comfortable and yet put together.  I have no issue with that!

  • He just looks annoyed to me, which is understandable, if I were that gorgeous, I’m sure I would be a total douche. Looks like an English riding helmet on his head.

    • littlemac8

      Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!  I was just asking myself, “What the hell is that on his head?”  I love your guess!

  • I’m failing to see the douche factor here.

  • demidaemon

    All I see is crotch…and what a yummy crotch it is. 🙂

    • lizajane1776

       And I was wondering if the stitching on the fly was wider than normal, giving the illusion of extra oomph in the package.

  • Again, enough with the “d” word.  It’s passe and so beneath you guys.  Remember, a douche begets a douche.  Words to live by.  LOL.

    •  Is that one of those “lots of love” LOLs?

    • “Remember, a douche begets a douche.”

      That makes absolutely no sense.  We will decide what is beneath us, thank you. And if you feel it’s so passe, why don’t you hop on over two posts, where half the commentariat is deciding Eddie Redmayne is a douche, and wag your finger at them some? Because if there’s one thing people love on the internet, it’s other people on the internet lecturing them like they’re children, amirite?

      • watchmeboogie

        And hey, it’s hardly your fault that he gives off douchey vibes. It’s more of a fact than a judgment, right?

        He IS pretty, though. So pretty.

  • Leonardo Alves

    Such a good-looking douche, though!

  • More more moreeeee!! This site needs way more IS, IMO.

  • Jess_face

    I think he looks a lot better with blonde hair and I am usually not one who prefers blonde hair on men.

    • Imasewsure

      I’ll have to check that out. He’s very pretty but very typical of the classic brown haired Holly-male beauty (Matt Bomer, Zac Efron, Rob Lowe, etc). Let’s see what the sun-kissed look does for his beautiful self!

  • jmorino08

    Aw man, he looks like sex on a stick to me. Yum!

  • His reviews on LOST were often something like “His performance almost made me forget it was Ian Somerhalder”.  He still played a douche – but a complex one.

  • sk8tfan

    I dunno. His outfit looks casual cute here and I suspect he was born with those demonically piercing eyes, hence his perfect casting in the vampire show (I assume the satanic brows were assisted by various beauticians.) I’m not sold on the mom jeans, comfy as they may be on a plane. Overall I give him a pass here.

  • msdamselfly

    Wow   I thought he looked really cute

  • He is the nicest guy, if all his animal rights activism is anything to go by.

  • Teri Brinson

    Hottest cross-eyed guy I’ve ever seen.

  • quiltrx

    He does emanate the scent of douche, doesn’t he?

    I’ve never noticed his eyes looking so strange before.  And it’s every pic…is he stoned out of his mind?

  • CarolinLA

    I’ve always heard only the nicest of compliments about him.  Douchiness has never come up that I remember.  I don’t watch Vampire Diaries but I loves my Boone from LOST.

  • girliecue

    He’s a cat lover, though, and I think he rescued a couple of cats here in Atlanta so it’s hard for me to think him a douche. Plus I’m a sucker for a guy with dark hair and blue eyes. Overall, he looks great for having survived ATL’s ridiculous security and a 5 hour plane ride!

  • I wish I looked that good getting off a plane. Silly hat, though.

  • ZnSD

    I’d hit it.

  • crash1212

    Wow. I don’t get ‘douche’ from him at all. I think he’s way cute and I love his traveling outfit. Also, blonde lady who may or may not be his significant other/traveling companion?- your outfit’s way cute, too and I love your boots.

    • watchmeboogie

      Probably his assistant – he’s with Nina Dobrev, his costar in Vampire Diaries.

  • glennethph

    He’s one of the best things (if not the best thing) on Vampire Diaries.  It’s a great show, and like someone said, it’s better than it has the right to be.

  • RzYoung

    I’m totally distracted by the camera man in the yellow hat in the last picture – what the hell is going on with his face?! Is he wearing a bank robber mask or something? Must be a trick of the light, right? Right?

  • notterriblybitter

    Someone should tell him that if you’re being photographed when you’re out and about, you’re not supposed to look right at the camera. 

  • twocee

    I don’t care if he exudes douchiness.  YUM.

  • veronkimo

    I personally do not find him as attractive as everyone seems to think he is. He just doesn’t do it for me. 

  • Can’t deny that bone structure. I’m going to be sad if he really is attached to play Christian Gray, because that would launche his douche factor into the stratosphere.

    That man bag is gorgeous. 

  • The girl behind him looks travel-chic!

  • formerlyAnon

    Meh. He is too Male Model for me to care what he’s wearing unless it’s really interesting. I get distracted by his oh-so-photogenic face, have a strong negative reaction to said face, and attention span ends.

  • neofashionista

    he is just such a douche
    maybe a hot douche
    but still a Douche

  • What’s with that hat?

  • eh, I don’t get what’s so douchey about Ian. Mind shedding light onto this mystery?

  • disqus_9zJCJFrymE

    He is NOT a douche! I met him about a month ago and he is so sincerely nice. Check out all the good he does with the IS Foundation. He is very nice to his fans. And his eyes are beautiful! Probably was blinded by the flash going off right in his face. Met his family too and they are very nice also. The douche factor does not apply to Ian Somerhalder. Nicest celeb I have ever met and I have met quite a few.
