They went through a painful breakup in 2013, so it’s great to see that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have remained friends.

During the 2014 People's Choice Awards last night (January 8) the “Vampire Diaries” costars/ex-real-life-lovers were honored with the Best Chemistry trophy.

Ian exclaimed, "This is crazy. Can you believe this almost five years in the making?" Nina replied, "You're right, yeah. But you know what's crazier though, Ian? At the beginning of the show, Elena actually hated Damon."

"You were hooking up with my brother!" Somerhalder shot back (referring to Paul Wesley’s Stefan).”You killed my brother," said Nina.

Ian added, "And then she fell in love with me," to which Dobrev replied, "And then we started dating on the show. Then we broke up in real life."

Taking it a little further, Somerhalder mentioned, "And yet our characters are still dating on the show.” Nina noted, “It's a good thing it's not awkward…Well, it's a good thing we have chemistry!"
