While at a Vampire Diaries convention in Orlando recently, the 35-year-old star of the hit CW show revealed someone in the crowd gave him a marriage proposal, adding, "You do not want to be married to me. Trust me. I'm a workaholic. I'm never home."
"That's okay," a fan yelled out.
"I have eight animals...," Ian said, to a crowd (who obviously didn't care) and erupted in applause and screams.
"Yeah, they're adorable, but what 'til you're living with them...there's five of them and they're 25 pounds each...their turds are about the size of this microphone. I mean, it's all day everyday."
"No, by the way, they're the most beautiful creatures I've ever known," he continued.
"I thought I was the most beautiful creature you've ever known," Vampire Diaries co-star Paul Wesley, who was sitting on stage beside him quipped.
"Well, you're one of them," Ian joked back to Paul, rubbing his face. "This is why you don't want to be married to either one of us."
