Vampire Diaries actor reveals he spent his birthday naked

Damon (Ian Somerhalder) in The Vampire Diaries on TV2

It's a tough life working on The Vampire Diaries set. Like many of us, Ian Somerhalder spent his birthday at work this year, but unlike the rest of us, his day sounded a lot more interesting!

He revealed to People Magazine exactly what he got up to for his birthday on December 8th.

"I was naked with a beautiful girl all day," he confessed.  "I had a shower scene that led into another scene were I was kind of half-naked and wet."

He wouldn't reveal whether the girl in question was Elena, or even Katherine, but whoever the lucky girl was, we bet she wasn't complaining!

But he did confirm who didn't share a shower cubicle with him.   "It wasn't Stefan," he says "I promise."

Hmm...good to know. Brotherly showering is just a little too icky for us.

But it wasn't all sexy fun times for Ian's birthday. He also launched a special birthday campaign to promote his new environmental charity, the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. 

Ian might play bad boy Damon, but off screen he's a big softie and passionate environmentalist.

His charitable organisation, the IS Foundation, has been set up to raise funds for the environment and help educate people about environmental issues.

Speaking to Zap 2 It, Ian described the motivation behind his new venture. 

"It's a collaborative spirit," he said. "This is about educating and empowering people globally, especially the youth, to start acting now and understand that their environment and they have to start learning how to protect it."

Aw...not only is he incredibly hot and funny, he's all about the charity too!
