Ian Somerhalder, the guy who went from playing the dead Boone on Lost to playing the undead Damon on The Vampire Diaries, has spoken out about his feelings regarding the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  Apparently the environment ranks pretty high on his list of concerns, but he’s even more concerned about coming across as one of those celebrity douchebags who parades around talking about environmental causes while maintaining a carbon footprint the size of Montana.

Somerhalder told Reuters that he was concerned about crossing the line between being a celebrity and being an activist, but when you look at his history with charity work and green concerns, he appears to be the real deal.  He’s not just another pretty face talking about a token cause for publicity – he actually seems to be spending time working on projects that mean something to him.
