Holy Hotness: Vampire Diaries Stars Cover EW

by at . Comments

Warning to all fans of The Vampire Diaries: you may need a glass of ice cold water prior to reading any further. Not to drink. To douse on yourself.

That's because stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, with all three gracing the main cover and Nina having each actor to herself on a pair of separate, collectible covers.

Click on the trio of photos below for larger versions and take note of the colors assigned to Wesley and Somhaler... if you can get past the fact that none of them are wearing a shirt, that is. How roles have changed for Stefan and Damon...

Inside the issue - on sale Friday! - producer Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson talk about the challenge of Elena and Damon's first real kiss, and how they wanted to keep both Stelena and Delena fans on board with it.

In general, when considering the love triangle, Plec says:

“How can we service this moment between our characters that we really want, a Damon and Elena kiss, without getting the Stefan-Elena side of the fandom to give up hope and give up on us? And vice versa, when we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?”

For a lot more about the show, pick up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. As if we needed to tell you that.

OMD!!!!! It took me 2 days to be able to comment on this... The threesome is just strange... Stelena is kinda creepy cuz Paul's married. But Delena, OH HELL YES!!!! When I saw Ian with no shirt on I started hypervenilating! I seriously think I almost passed out. And plus they're Dating so it makes more sense. Also in the show Elena hates Stefan cuz he's being a dick so Delena pic makes much more sense. I really think they should try Delena on the show cuz it would add so much more Drama b/w Stefan and Damon. Oh, and then maybe they could bring Katherine into it and have Stefan with her to try to piss off Delena... Just saying, they should try it.

Looking at these covers of entertainment weekly, they look out of this world. It may seem oh wow to know Paul married and Nina dating Ian, but who knows if these covers will drive people into jealousy or attractiveness. I mostly want to find out what happens in the show and I can't wait to see how the rest of season 3 goes out. ;) ;P

I want the Delena and group shot so bad!

The Delena one is "hotter" because Paul is MARRIED, and Ian and Nina are DATING, so of course they're more comfortable around each other.
Anyway, I don't like Nina's facial expression in the Threesome and the Delena one.
