Celebrity Up-Close: Ian Somerhalder

Yesterday (May 23, 2012 2PM), which still feels like today, was the day that I was an ultimate fangirl and I must say, today was the best fan girl moments of my life! My close encounter with Ian Somerhalder was something I will always treasure for the rest of my life. Seeing him in person for an hour and at a short distance was one of the best things a fan girl can ever have with a celebrity she admires. It was a pleasant surprise when I woke up yesterday morning with an invitation to see Ian Somerhalder up close and personal. I was jumping up and down like on a spring board. I was super hyperventilating, I can’t eat and I was super happy. Penshoppe had a press conference with Ian Somerhalder (who finally is their latest Hollywood superstar celebrity endorser) yesterday afternoon at the Conservatory of the Manila Peninsula and the media invited to cover the event were very selected and I was so privileged to be part of it.

This is what I can say to those who is trying to compare Ian Somerhalder to the other brands endorser he is no match.  Ian Somerhalder is 1 million times “hotter” than the young one you were comparing him with.  Ian Somerhalder is more than just good looks and undeniable charms, he is a man with great passion for environment conservation and preservation, he has a beautiful mind that every woman in the world will fall for. To prove such big heart and brilliant mind is his IS Foundation who is working for our mother planet Earth.

I have a lot of still shots and video clips from the press conference, I will post the video links here after they are uploaded.  Meanwhile enjoy some pics of my close encounter with Ian Somerhalder, whom I was able to feel his chest, feel his arms, smell him and see him face to face (sorry if that sounded too stalkerish!)   I just love you lots Ian Somerhalder a.k.a. Damon Salvatore of the Vampire Diaries!
