Ian Somerhalder Has Coffee with President Barack Obama

When he’s not hitting up CW events in New York City, attending Vampire Diaries fan conventions in Brazil, and dancing the night away with Julie Plec in France, Ian Somerhalder is most likely spending his summer enjoying a fresh cup of coffee…with US President Barack Obama.

And just in case you think we’re making this incredible news up, here’s proof of the glorious moment:

The Vampire Diaries actor and recently named U.N. Ambassador met with the influential US leader on Thursday, June 7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California to discuss green initiatives and environmental concerns. Ian even tweeted a few details about their “surreal” coffee date: “Just spent my morning w/this man talkn green energy,a better America&being a young American-wow http://www.barackobama.com/young-americans.” (Also in attendance were Dianna Agron, Alexis Bledel, Adam Rodriguez, Ben McKenzie, Jeremy Renner, Anna Kendrick, Sophia Bush, Zachary Quinto and more young Hollywood stars!)

How lucky is Ian? Or, better yet, how lucky is President Obama? Oh, what we’d give to listen in on their conversation and learn all about their exciting policy-making ideas on making the world a better place!

If you ever got the chance to have coffee with anyone in the world who would you choose and why? Tell us in the comments!

    I’d choose Hugo Chavez and I’d ask him why he is so narrow-minded in his idealogy? I could choose the Pope and I’d ask him the same question! Granted, I am Catholic and I do not follow his logic!

  2. Theo Said:

    @cinseg1 Hugo Chavez would definitely be interesting! I’d personally love a meetup with Harry Houdini — just to get all his secrets! ;)

    Omg I love The Vampire Diaries. I have to admit, I thought I wasn’t going to like it but my husband made me watch it and I was hooked. I watch it every Thursday night when it’s on, unless I have to work then I record it. um, I know this might sound crazy but I named my son Damon Scott. Mainly because I really like the name. I really love the show and love the actors. The actors do a wonderful job, they make it seem so real. I love it.

  23. Theo Said:

    @Lavina Damon is a great name! Welcome to the TVD Family! :)

    Ian very happy, first of all, as a man very kind and with good intentions… and after the actor! , Ian still quite young, but already thinking about our common future, trying to protect our home planet. This is clear evidence that he is not an egoist, as in most cases, the actors, who caught a star! Keep it up, Ian! And, of course, would love to see this wonderful man.
