“Nikki is amazing, and we are very, very close,” she gushed to PEOPLE at the Teen Choice Awards 2016 in Inglewood, CA. “You can thank all of my ear piercings, you can thank her. She didn’t pierce them, but she’s got like crazy ear game, and it’s really cute when best friends take inspiration from each other.”
Graham was quick to share what makes Somerhalder, 37, and Reed, 28, a “perfect match.”
“Why I think they’re so perfect is because of their philanthropy,” she explained of the couple who tied the knot in April 2015. “They have the same values when it comes to people, how you treat people, how you treat animals, how you treat the world, the environment.”
“I mean, they’re really perfect together,” Graham added. “I’m like, thank God you guys found each other because I don’t know what you would do without each other. They’re perfect.”
