The currently single "Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder eagerly sat down for an interview with E!News to talk about his dating life. In the "Larry King Now" on Ora TV interview, the 35-year-old heartthrob actor also talked about wanting to work again with ex-girlfriend Maggie Grace whom he still loves dearly.

Ian Somerhalder and his "Lost" co-star Maggie Grace are no longer together but apparently the TVD actor has not stopped loving her. According to the Entertainmentwise.com report, Larry King offered Twitter questions through a clip on "Larry King Now" that actor Ian Somerhalder answered.

One subject matter asked was whether Ian would want to work again with Maggie Grace and the actor responded that he would love that to happen. "I love her dearly. We're very very close. She is a wildly talented, beautiful human being and we plan on it," the actor shared.

The former "Lost" stars got reunited at the TV series' 10th anniversary reunion during the 2014 PaleyFest held last March 16 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Their meeting was pleasant and cozy as Ian hugged Maggie and planted a huge kiss on her cheek in front of the event's photographers.

Ian's dating life has been closely scrutinized ever since his romantic relationship with "Vampire Diaries" co-star Nina Dobrev ended in 2013. Some fans are still hoping that Ian and Nina will rekindle their relationship but it looks like the two are more content being friends and co-workers in real life.

Additionally, Ian Somerhalder has hinted in the E!News interview that he wants to keep his distance from fellow Hollywood personalities. "There is no dating. I am solo as solo could get. I can't imagine dating in Hollywood. I'm a serial monogamist, man. Dating in Hollywood's gotta be gnarly," the "Vampire Diaries" actor revealed.

Last April, dating rumours ignited when Ian Somerhalder was spotted with Molly DeWolf Swenson, RYOT News' current COO and former "American Idol" contestant. The WetPaint reports the new girl linked to the TVD star immediately refuted the dating rumours on her Twitter account @mollydewolf by declaring that she has been off the market for two years already.

In the meantime, fans can catch Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore in "The Vampire Diareis" Season 5 that airs Thursday nights at 8 pm ET on the CW Network.
