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.

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

          • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

             Stefan is kind of uptight.

        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.

      • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

        Ditto, he’s just having a squinty moment.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=509434130 Michelle Le

        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!

    • http://twitter.com/Glam_Dixie Glam Dixie

      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!

    • http://twitter.com/ZumaZoum Eric

      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.

    • http://twitter.com/TheRealSandraOh Sandra Oh

      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.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

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

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        “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!

    • http://twitter.com/awtchy1 Ashley

      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!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

      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

    • http://twitter.com/bodyhair N.S. David

      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!

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      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. 

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      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. 

    • http://profiles.google.com/scaponigro Sarah Caponigro

      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

    • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      What’s with that hat?

    • http://www.reveriesanctuary.com/ shanaz@ReverieSanctuary

      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.
