She always looks smoking hot on the red carpets and beyond, but Nina Dobrev revealed that fashion isn’t really her forte in the August 2014 issue of Nylon magazine.
After posing in a casual ensemble for the publication, the “Vampire Diaries” babe opened up about attending swanky events and how she used to snag deals from The Salvation Army.
Check out highlight’s from Nina’s interview below and for more, head over to Nylon!
“I was not a girly-girl growing up…I liked fashion, but I wasn’t very fashion savvy. I didn’t always have all the best outfits…For a while there, we actually shopped at The Salvation Army.”
On dressing up for the red carpet:
“It doesn’t feel real because I don’t live in that world. When I go to those events, I’m in town specifically for that, and then I leave later that night. I’ve maybe stayed for the after-party once, ever. It still feels like I’m a fan, in a way. A lot of people are very cynical and very jaded, but I’m not there yet.”
On being kind to all, including her exes:
“I don’t like any kind of negativity. I try to be good to everyone, whether it’s a love, a friend, an ex. I’ll always try to treat people the way I want to be treated.”
*Nina’s ex, Ian Somerhalder, told the mag in reply to this statement – “She always lets me have the last fry.”
On being famous:
“People feel like they know you when you’re in their living room, weekly, for five years. But I always get uncomfortable when people know more about me than I know about them.”
On acting in a comedy:
“It’s terrifying. I can get to an emotional place and start crying, but there’s pressure when you think you have to be funny…You really have to be uninhibited and fearless.”
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Fifth Season, which stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Steven R.

There’s Stefan (Wesley) with his shadow self Silas, plus Katherine (also Dobrev), with a diabolical agenda and a jaw-dropping transformation.

Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch and Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev have joined The Final Girls, a horror comedy from Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions being directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson.
Also joining the production are Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect, TV’s Workaholics) and Alexander Ludwig (Hunger Games).
The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are fighting a Twitter campaign dubbed #DelenaRainKiss that requests that their characters do another kissing scene in the rain.
While speaking at the PaleyFest panel for the CW series, Somerhalder said that he didn’t think the scene “was such a good idea.”
“First of all, it’s really cold in Georgia, so I don’t think that’s such a good idea,” he explained. “It was below 30 degrees, and it got so cold the muscles in my jaw froze and I couldn’t speak. I looked like I had Bell’s palsy.”
“I got icicles in my hair and I got really sick,” Dobrev, who became ill after shooting the last kissing-in-the-rain scene, added.
The duo, who were once a real life couple, play Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore in the series. And while they’ve been able to remain co-workers and even friends after their 2013 breakup, another kiss under the rain would be a deal-breaker for Somerhalder.
“You write another rain kiss and I quit,” he joked.
Nina Dobrev makes no bones about supporting President Obama and his trademark healthcare insurance law. So when asked to join in on a PSA for young adults to buy health insurance, this Canadian native jumped at it. She spent her weekend filming the PSA with other stars to help out. Here is what she had to say about the PSA after she wrapped it up, which she didn’t say about it at the start.
AND THATS A WRAP on our Affordable Care Act PSA! Who said working on a Sunday can’t also be a Funday? @nikkireed_i_am #GETCOVERED #rightnow
We cannot wait to see the finished production. We are pretty sure that we will be blown away by the lineup they have. As for where and how it will air, that remains to be seen. We are pretty sure though that Nina will keep everyone updated about it. Especially since she seems to be very excited to be part of the law that has swept up her adoptive country as much as Affordable Care Act has.
