In an interview with Origin magazine – Ian answered the question on what makes him vulnerable.

He replied, “A great question, and it actually leads into the reason why we’re having this conversation right now. I feel vulnerable when I have no choice. It segues into every facet of life, whether it’s love, work, family, or conservation. Here it is: The whole reason that I started the Ian Somerhalder Foundation Ian was the feeling of complete vulnerability during the BP oil spill.”

He also talked about using social media stating, “What I’ve started to realize is that social media is not just technology — it’s become its own entity, full of energy waves. These energy waves could be a Tweet about something you are furious about, like the Keystone Pipeline, or a piece of legislation. Instantly, energy surrounds and adds traction, influence, making it come alive.

“Within hours, this piece of information you’ve just doled out has become a monsoon, a hurricane of tangible energy that is literally circulating the world. It’s helped me sense the undeniable truth of quantum consciousness, the whole butterfly effect. I witness it daily. Being witness to it not only makes me come alive, it enables me to maintain hope.”
