Ian Somerhalder went to Washington DC to attend the 57th Presidential Inauguration when he lost his ticket!
He shared a photo and Tweeted: “Ahh!Who lost his ticket w/great seats to the Presidential Inauguration while grabbing food?THIS GUY!WTF?!BUMMMMER…”
The Vampire Diaries star later wrote: “Breakfast alone in DC sans inauguration ticket.Time to get caught up on emails and tweets i guess-Meetings later to prepare for…”
Fortunately Ian already met President Obama this past November.
“It was a pretty surreal experience,” Somerhalder told Zap2it. “I was up at 6 a.m. to have breakfast with the leader of the free world, and it just blew my mind — particularly because he was so humble. Essentially, he said, ‘Listen, I’m not pretending to know everything, so I’m asking you to hit me up, talk to me, tell me what you know, and I’ll tell you what I know.”
