Nina has spent the past few years making movies despite the fact that she left the popular show The Vampire Diaries. She started in the business when she played the character Mia Jones in Degrassi: The New Generation. That’s when people started to notice her. She then went on to play Elena Gilbert in The Vampire Diaries and proved to the world that she was one hell of an actress. Not only does she have some serious talent in Hollywood but she has known to be a real sweetheart. She has a strong sense of style and is generous to everyone around her.
Nina has enchanted everyone around her, so much so that she is enchanting women who aren’t interested in women. People are falling in love with her even when they don’t want to. She has enchanted her fans from The Vampire Diaries, and many people were upset when she left the show. It was rumored though that she left the show due to her break up with Ian Somerhalder. The show wasn’t even sure it would survive without the actress. Would her career? It seems that since her departure she has done quite well for herself in Hollywood and has no regrets about leaving the show. Either way, she’s not looking back these days, and she’s proving to her fans that she has a lot more to offer. Not only is she sweet but she’s one hot actress. Don’t believe me? Then check out the pictures below.
15. Sweet as Pie
This picture is the perfect example of why Nina is considered to be a sweetheart in Hollywood – just look at that smile! Not only that but she’s a babe as well. This picture is proof positive as to why you would want to take this beauty to the beach. Nina Dobrev isn’t her real name; it’s actually Nikolina Constantinova Dobreva. Wow, that’s a mouthful, and it’s probably why she changed it. The last thing she would want is to hear that name butchered during every single interview she did. She was named after her grandmother, and her name reflects her Bulgarian heritage. She speaks Bulgarian fluently, and she has a strong sense of pride when it comes to her heritage and her roots. Not only does she speak English and Bulgarian but she also speaks French as well. Beautiful and smart, what a powerful combination!
14. Suds and All
A great picture that shows a vulnerable side to Nina. This seems like a quiet moment for the actress as she bathes and she couldn’t look sexier. This sexy siren has won the hearts of many celebrities; she’s actually good friends with some cast members from the popular scandalous series Gossip Girl. She’s pretty tight with Jessica Szohr and Chace Crawford. Nina is a huge fan of the series and loves to hang out with her buddies whenever she gets the chance. This beauty has the habit of dating co-stars; not only did she date her co-star Ian Somerhalder in The Vampire Diaries but she dated Daniel Clark from her Degrassi: The Next Generation days. These days she’s not linked to anyone; she’s trying to focus on her career after her breakup to Ian.
13. She Loves Sports
How many of you would love this volleyball partner? She looks hot in this outfit, and she’s ready to play on your team. A polka dot bikini and some sports shorts are all she needs to drive men crazy everywhere. She loves sports in real life as well, in fact, she’s been involved in a variety of them. While she was younger, Nina was involved in sports, such as gymnastics. In 2005 she was even part of the Senior World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark as well as the Junior World Championships in Plzen, Czech Republic. When it comes to exercise, she loves doing yoga, and while she was on the Degrassi set she was involved in Cheerleading. She loves staying active and would be the first person to suggest playing some sports. If you are looking for a girl for football Sunday, then this is the one for you.
12. Beach Babe
You’re going to want to take Nina to the beach every single day in this bikini. It shows off all her assets and makes you crave just a little bit more. There is nothing better than going to the beach with a hottie. Hot sand, cool water and someone close to you to make everything just perfect. You may think this girl is all cool and nothing more, but she is actually a little dorky. But who doesn’t love a dorky girl! In fact, she is completely obsessed with Harry Potter. She even visited Harry Potter World while she was in Orlando, FL. She went there with a friend, and they got pictures of themselves outside of the Hogsmeade sign. She loves all things fantasy and who can blame her, the Harry Potter franchise has made billions of dollars.
11. Sexy With Spice
Sitting in this pose you can only wonder, what is going through this siren’s mind? That look is all about taking control and knowing what she wants. She’s just in a bodysuit and jeans and yet she would be the sexiest girl in the room. There were a lot of actresses that were going for the role of Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries; even Ashlee Simpson threw her hat in the ring. Nina was the one to beat them all out for the coveted role, and we couldn’t be more grateful. After all, I can’t really picture two hot vampires fighting over the little sister of Jessica Simpson. There is just something mysterious and forbidden about the look that Nina has. She has the type of allure that draws men in, and you can imagine them fighting over her. Not too many women can pull such a look off.
10. Checkered Beauty
This beauty not only is one supreme hottie but she has style to boot. Here she is in a playful pose in a checkered dress that shows off the fact that she’s not only a hottie but one classy babe. You might be surprised to find out that Nina is a Canadian girl living in Toronto, Ontario. Her family left Bulgaria and moved to Canada where she has resided ever since. It was in Toronto that Nina was discovered by a talent agency. She was just one of those actresses that didn’t even know she wanted to be an actress; she was just discovered out of the blue. Armstrong Acting Studio located in Toronto was the one to discover Nina and put her on the road to success. It wasn’t long before she was booking gigs and getting on the fast track to Hollywood.
9. Seductive Nina
Those legs! We just can’t get enough of them; no wonder she is considered to be an enchantress in Hollywood. When you put Nina in a dress like this it’s all about seductiveness. She’s not only beauty, but she can charm any man that she wants. Nina never intended on being an actress. She went to Ryerson University to study sociology and was even against taking an acting class. One time her school newspaper interviewed her, and she said this, “I’d rather do what I’m doing at work and then go to school to learn about something completely different that I don’t know much about so I can expand.” I guess she had no idea that she was about to be “discovered.” Nina left University in 2008 because she wanted to focus on her acting career. It’s funny how something so small can change someone’s whole life.
8. Just a Sweater
Even I’m swooning over this picture. Throw this girl in nothing but a sweater, and you just can’t seem to take your eyes off of her. But that’s true sex appeal, isn’t it? When you can put on a garbage back and still have guys drooling all over you. It’s not about the outfit. It’s about the confident you have wearing that outfit. When I say that Nina is a real sweetheart, it’s not just fluff; she really cares about not only the people around her but humans as a whole. She has used her fame to help support many worthy causes, some of which include Hunger Bites and Project Pink. When she was still part of Degrassi: The Next Generation she worked with her cast mates to help establish a school for the children of Kenya. They were able to do this through an organization called Free the Children. These days she has a lot of focus on preventing bullying through many anti-bullying campaigns.
7. Girl With Class
When this girl goes out, she knows how to dress in style. Not only is this dress a great example of her sense of style but it shows off how sexy she is. It doesn’t matter if it’s an awards event or just a social outing, this girl knows how to show up as a class act every single time. She has a lot of famous friends including Nikki Reed and Anna Kendrick, the girls from the Twilight series. She hung out with all of them during her 24th birthday during the time when she was still with Ian Somerhalder. The weird thing is when she broke up with Ian Somerhalder, one of her best friends Nikki Reed started to date him, and they got involved in a quickie engagement, and now they are married. We have to wonder if Nikki was pining away for Ian the whole time he was dating Nina.
6. She Loves to Skinny Dip
We can’t get enough of this girl in a bikini. She’s beautiful and sexy and not one of those skinny girls. She has a lot of curves that go everywhere. She may love donning that bikini and heading to the beach but sometimes she doesn’t even want a bathing suit at all. Nina actually loves skinny dipping; in fact, she does it quite frequently. She claimed in an interview with InStyle that she often carries a bikini around with her in her bag. She does this because she likes to jump in the water at a moment’s notice. “Because you never know when you’re going to want to go skinny dipping, or for a midnight swim. I’m a classy skinny dipper. I dip with minimal skin showing [laughs].” Maybe it’s not technically naked swimming, but I told you the girl was a class act.
5. Out in Style
This class act is out once again in a dress that is form fitting and shows off a little skin. It’s a gorgeous dress, and with her hair pulled back, she looks like a girl who knows she has the world in her hands. If you ever question whether or not she is a sought after star in Hollywood let me remind you that she once won a People’s Choice Award for a category she wasn’t even nominated for. In January of 2012, she won the award for Favorite TV Drama Actress for her character on The Vampire Diaries, but she was never nominated for it. It came as a surprise to her when she found out that her fans were so dedicated to her that instead of voting for the other nominees they cast their own votes and she ended up winning against the actresses who were actually nominated.
4. A Slit Up to There
Talk about hot. Nina sure knows how to pick a gown for an event. Not only is this dress sure to draw attention because of its serious bling but did you see that slit? It goes all the way up showcasing the incredible legs that this girl has. When it comes to skills it seems that Nina has too many to count; the girl is just so talented in every aspect of her life. Not only does she have a busy career and is involved with sports and charity but she’s also scuba certified. During the filming of The Vampire Diaries, there was a scene in season three that required Nina to be under water for a period of time. She was required to take lessons in order to be safe during the scene. Her lessons took place in Bora Bora and when she did the scene the whole shoot took a whopping eight hours to come together.
3. Sultry Style
This sexy girl is one that you can’t forget, not for long anyways. Those eyes, those lips, the girl is the embodiment of a sultry vixen. By the look on her face, it looks like she’s the fearless type that can handle just about anything. The question of whether you would ever want to be immortal is always out there, and I have to admit that I’ve always been on the fence. Imagine the things that you could do or accomplish if you lived forever, but then, on the other hand, you would have to watch everyone you know and love die. Nina is strong in her opinion that being a vampire isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. “I don’t know if I’d want it. I live a pretty cool life, so I’m happy where I am.” She has said this of the idea of being immortal.
2. Cute As a Button
Who could say no to this girl in a getup like that? She’s sexy, and this is what it means to be an enchantress. You just know how to have the confidence it takes to walk into a room and own it, and it sure wouldn’t be hard in this picture. When it comes to owning pets, this girl loves her cat. She loves her cats so much that she often dresses them up, sometimes even in Santa suits. “I’m gonna say [I am a] ‘cat woman,’ because ‘cat lady’ makes me sound 500 years old,” she told an interviewer for NYLON magazine. “But I love my furry friends.” When she was dating Ian, the two of them shared their love for kitties and adopted a few of them, I’m pretty sure that Nina kept custody of them though after the split.
1. Her Strong Side
A great picture that shows that Nina is a force to be reckoned with; she’s the boss in any situation. We can see what a strong person Nina is just based on the kind of life she lives. That dress is not only form fitting, but the blue just makes her eyes pop, it’s the perfect color choice for her. You may not know they she once killed an audition by doing it via Skype. She was on set filming The Vampire Diaries when she snuck away to the bathroom to do an audition for The Perks of Being a Wallflower. “’Guys, I’m going to go to the bathroom. I just have to pee for five minutes’…And then I went, and Skyped and auditioned, and there was definitely a moment that we both knew this was a right fit, and it worked.”
