It seems that Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder’s romantic interlude in Paris brought on a little bit of heartache when news surfaced that the star of "The Vampire Diaries" turned down some fans' requests for photos. After receiving backlash from the incident, Somerhalder responded to his fans via Instagram.
Somerhalder took to Instagram on Saturday to send his fans a message following the fan-upsetting incident in Paris, reports Cambio. The actor wrote: “Looking at the world through my eyes and always trying to see it through yours. I see you. I see all of you and find great beauty in each set of eyes. Anyone who knows me understands that I spend a great deal of my life with our fans. Our audience. The people that make this show and ISF [Ian Somerhalder Foundation] happen -- all with hearts, minds bodies and souls. It blows my mind that a man who tried to love so much, a man asking for one day, just one day to have a quiet walk down the street is so upsetting to people. So much love to you all. ... Goodnight and thank you.”
This message was posted days after a video clip of Somerhalder refusing to have his picture taken was shared on Twitter. People magazine reported Friday on how Reed and Somerhalder encountered a group of fans outside a building in Paris on Thursday and the actor quickly made it clear he didn’t want to take photos with them -- which left one girl in tears. "I love you guys. I'm not taking a single photo today. It's my day," he told them. "Don't follow us, please. I love you guys. Do not follow us. OK? It's too much."
This is a stark contrast to the lovely and sweet moments that the couple have been sharing since they kicked off their Paris getaway, as reported by Popsugar last week. The two were seen walking along the picturesque streets of Paris during the Memorial Day weekend, capping off a successful red carpet appearance at the Cannes Film Festival.
The couple also recently celebrated their one-month wedding anniversary, with Reed posting a short clip of their wedding video in Instagram.
