They accepted the award for best onscreen chemistry, which I mean, c’mon. Duh. They’re hot together! So, as you may know, they used to date in real life, and no longer do. So… awkward! But not really??
Taking the stage to accept their trophy, 24-year-old Dobrev and 35-year-old Somerhalder riffed adorably on their shared history. “Wow, this is crazy!” the actor began. “Can you believe this is almost five years in the making?”
“You’re right, yeah!” his ex replied. “But you know what’s funny, Ian, is that at the beginning of the show, Elena actually hated Damon.”
“You were hooking up with my brother!” he retorted, referring to Elena’s epic romance with Stefan Salvatore (played by Paul Wesley).
“Well, you killed my brother,” she countered.
Eventually, of course, their characters moved past those obstacles and fell in love. As did Somerhalder and Dobrev.
“We started dating in real life,” he said.
“And then we broke up in real life,” she added.
“And yet our characters are still dating on the show,” he continued.
“It’s a good thing it’s not awkward!” she joked, as the two shuffled away from each other and pretended to look uncomfortably at the floor. Then, amid laughs from the crowd, they held up their trophy and quipped, “It’s a good thing we have chemistry!”
UGH Why don’t these two just get back together already?!?!
