Paul Wesley Hates Topless Scenes
Paul Wesley tries to get topless scenes written out of 'The Vampire Diaries'.
The 30-year-old actor - who plays male protagonist Stefan Salvatore in the supernatural drama series - doesn't enjoy being filmed half-naked for the show, and he would prefer it if Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) would be the only star who has to act nude in the programme.
He said: ''I try and get those scenes written out! I did a lot in season one, was constantly working out and eating healthily. But I understand some scenes need nudity.
''Ian has to walk around naked non-stop, so I let him carry the baton!''
While Paul enjoys the banter between himself and Ian - who portray vampire brothers in the series - he is glad he doesn't have a male sibling in real life because he would always be fighting with him over girls.
He added: ''No way. I wouldn't want to have to fight over girls with them. I wouldn't like the competition.''
For his next role, Paul admits he would be keen to portray an older character.
He explained: ''I wouldn't mind playing a human. As I'm 30, any role where I'm not eternally stuck in the body of a 17 year old, really.''
