Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder heat up the small screen every week on their popular CW series, The Vampire Diaries. But like that other famous vampy couple (ahem, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart from The Twilight Saga), they have some pretty serious romantic chemistry off the set, too. While they keep their romance guarded, still refusing to confirm an official relationship, and stay mum on their love life (much like Pattinson and Stewart, too!), there's no denying Dobrev and Somerhalder have the hots for each other. A body language expert has recently confirmed as much, too, based on this twosome's PDA at Coachella.
"There is lots of sexual heat between these two," Dr. Lillian Glass told Hollywood Life exclusively. She may have been stating the obvious when she analyzed some of the steamy, candid photos of Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder kissing at the celeb-studded music fest. But nothing like having an expert opinion!
Regarding one of the pics, Glass went on to say, "Nina is leaning her body into Ian and he has a smug smile like he is hiding something. They are standing chest to chest and hip to hip with no space between them and that means they are most likely very, very close to one another. Nina is leaning her head into Ian's as well, which definitely shows intimacy."
Sometimes body language analyses can provide insight into deeply hidden, subconscious cues that a person makes. This time, not so much. Glass may have deduced all the material quoted above from one snap, but her comments were definitely all pretty logical and more or less spoke to the blatantly apparent.
So, hidden body language clues or not, it appears that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are way more than "just friends." But, beyond sharing a few kisses at Coachella, this couple also shared an equally trendsetting sense of style, decked out in breezy, slightly boho attire that was at once cool and casual. Whether they themselves admit it or not, they do make for one hot couple!
