The world of show business is filled with a vast array of Hollywood hunks. However, amid all of this glorious male eye candy, there is one man who far exceeds the rest, and that is the dreamy Vampire Diaries star, Ian Somerhalder. I mean, there's good looking, and then there's this guy. He's basically working on a whole other level of attractiveness, almost to the point where I've questioned (multiple times, might I add) that he may actually be a vampire because no ordinary human being is that perfect. It's just not possible or fair for the rest of society's egos.
However, despite my many reservations on the matter, Somerhalder is (probably) not a supernatural creature, which means those beautiful genetics are 100 percent legit. (Thank you, science.) But it's not just really, really, REALLY good DNA that makes Somerhalder so amazing. He's also extremely dedicated to his charities (as any Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram follower can tell you) and all-in-all he's a downright decent guy, which makes his mere existence all the more unbelievable. So given the fact that it's the Smolderholder's 36th birthday, I thought now would be as good a time as any to reflect on the all the times Somerhalder was simply too perfect for real life.
