Dobrev: Single and happy

Nina Dobrev

Nina Dobrev doesn’t need a man to be happy.

The actress started dating her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder in 2010, but they broke up last year.

She’s currently believed to be single, but the 25-year-old insists she’s fine being by herself.

“I definitely don’t need anyone to make me happy. I can do that all by myself,” she smiled to German magazine Joy.

Nina plays complex roles Elena Gilbert/Katherine Pierce/Amara in The Vampire Diaries and continues to work alongside ex-boyfriend Ian.

The pretty brunette admits the drama of the supernatural series can take its toll on her emotional wellbeing.

“It does leave marks, because a lot of people die on the show,” she said.

“As an actress I need to go through all that and, to a certain degree, need to live it all myself. How many tears I must have already shed in this role!”

Nina relaxes by turning the music up really loud when she gets home after a long day on set.

She also likes getting away to different countries, such as a spontaneous trip last summer.

“My girlfriend and I just got on a plane and flew away. It was a trip into the unplanned and the unknown,” she smiled.

“It was the most exciting thing I’ve ever experienced.”

The gorgeous star might have access to some of the best restaurants and clubs in the world, but she prefers to stay grounded.

When she turned 25 in January Nina didn’t hit any celebrity haunts.

“I spent my last birthday in bed!” she laughed.
