The Vampire Diaries actress is adorable, and seems to be sweet as pie. She proved herself to be a good friend recently to co-star and fellow fanger as they partied it up with a few other cast members (Except for ...awkwaaaaaaard) in honor of Paul's 31st birthday.
And of course, there were pictures. Adorable Instagram pictures. Check out Elena ditching Damon for Stefan (and a birthday cake, of course):
You know, it's seriously hard to be as hot as Ian Somerhalder (unless you're ), but Paul certainly has his own rugged super-swagger going on, doesn't he?
The Vampire Diaries returns at 8pm Thursdays on the CW in October.
