Ian Somerhalder may have found his new leading lady in life. Just one week after the split between "The Vampire Diaries" stars Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev was confirmed, the 34-year-old actor was spotted kissing international fashion model Ana Beatriz Barros, 31.
While the twosome was kissing for professional reasons while filming a romantic scene for an up-and-coming Azzaro perfume ad, eye witnesses reportedly spotted the co-stars enjoying each others' company off camera as well. "The scene is very hot," a source told In Touch. "They were kissing each other passionately."
The ad, which was shot in Lake Como, Italy, on Wednesday, has yet to be released, but paparazzi captured photos of the shoot. Allegedly, the duo could be seen laughing with each other between takes, which included Somerhalder slipping the model's white dress off her shoulder and playing with her hair.

While the famous duo was spotted getting hot and heavy for the cameras, Barros appears to be romantically linked to a different man. Just days before the now-infamous shoot, the model shared her affections toward a mystery individual. "Missing my baby @supreme_kec!!! [sic] Love in Venice" the model said on Instagram, also sharing a photo of herself with a male brunette. The identity of the model's alleged boyfriend is currently unknown.

The romantic shoot comes just days after "Teen Wolf" actor Colton Haynes confirmed Somerhalder's breakup with his girlfriend of three years, Dobrev, 24. “Oh, they are actually. I forgot [about that]. I’m sure they’re really great friends,” Haynes said during an interview with Entertainmentwise.
While the news may have disappointed supporters off the on-screen turned off-screen lovers, the 24-year-old actor and mutual friend of the former couple did reveal the possibility of a reconciliation. "I think you become really good friends with that person, you see them every day anyways. They obviously knew [that] getting into a relationship,” he said. “I think you always have love for someone. Every time you’re in a relationship, when you get out of one, I always think you still have a little bit of love left."
