Ian Somerhalder graces the pages of the May issue of GQ, and the smokin' hot Vampire Diaries star models colorful shirts and sexy suits and chats about his past and present TV gigs.

Ian opens up about getting booted off Lost, but he gets a chuckle out of his new group of fans that come from the CW's hit vampire drama. On being recognized by Vampire Diaries admirers, Ian says, “The decibel level at which a 13-year-old can explain how much she loves you -- it’s the coolest thing ever."

Maybe Damon Salvatore could teach the reluctant Edward Cullen a thing or two?
