Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Joke About Their Breakup at the People's Choice Awards

The Vampire Diaries costars win the award for "Best Chemistry"


Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev may not be dating anymore, but they still finish each other’s sentences.

The ex-couple – who are still costars on The Vampire Diaries – joked about their “Best Chemistry” win at the People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night, and they seemed perfectly in step.

“This is crazy, can you believe this is almost five years in the making?” Somerhalder, 35, said to his erstwhile flame.

“We started dating on the show,” began Dobrev, 24.

“We started dating in real life,” finished Somerhalder.

“And then we broke up in real life,” said Dobrev.

“And yet our characters are still dating on the show,” added Somerhalder.

“It’s a good thing it’s not awkward,” joked the actress, who recently helped Somerhalder deliver his dog Nietzsche’s puppies.

“Well, it’s a good thing we have chemistry,” Dobrev quipped.

The couple split in May after having dated for several years.
