Nina Dobrev and Kellan Lutz had a rather strange interaction while presenting the Choice Movie Actress: Action/Adventure award to Shailene Woodley at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.
The “Vampire Diaries'” star’s co-presenter wouldn’t stand next to her at the microphone, and when Dobrev pressed Lutz about it, he said it’s because he doesn’t want people to think that he’s her boyfriend.
According to the former “Twilight Saga” actor, there are five guys rumored to be Dobrev’s boyfriend at this point in time. Apparently even as an “Expendables 3” star, he can’t take that many rumored beaus at once.
“Those are tabloids,” she argues, but he insisted that there be a “five-foot radius rule” between the two of them to avoid new rumors sparking because they presented an award together.
If only there had been a camera cutaway to Dobrev’s ex Ian Somerhalder, who was sitting in the audience, then the comedic bit would have solidified its awkwardness — if comedy was even the intention. Regardless, no one will be speculating that Dobrev and Lutz are dating after that performance.
