“50 Shades of Grey” fans are impatiently waiting to see if Ian Somerhalder will be chosen to play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the raunchy book. However, if the “Vampire Diaries” star is chosen for the lead, his relationship with Nina Dobrev could be in trouble, Opposing Views reported on Mar. 12.
According to the report, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have tried to keep their relationship as private as possible, and if Ian is cast as Christian Grey in the “50 Shades of Grey” movie, then his relationship with Nina will be thrust into the spotlight.
“Vampire Diaries” fans know that the co-stars who play Damien Salvatore and Elena Gilbert on the hit CW show, are an item, and that they have amazing chemistry together. However, casting Somerhalder as Christian Grey would skyrocket his already growing fame, and leave him as one of the most sought after leading men in Hollywood.
Of course, with that, the tabloids will come running, and rumors about Ian Somerhalder’s relationship with Nina Dobrev will run wild. In addition to the rumors, the paparazzi would likely be relentless trying to snap photos of the couple together, much like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had to deal with at the height of their “Twilight” fame.
Do you think Ian Somerhalder being cast as Christian Grey in the “50 Shades of Grey” movie could hurt his relationship with girlfriend Nina Dobrev?
