Paul Wesley has clearly learned from his good friend Ian Somehalder how destructive press attention can be for a relationship. Especially one with a former co-star.
[The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) star is notoriously low key about his relationship with [The Originals](series:833141) actress, Phoebe Tonkin, but they were papped holding hands on a night out in London recently.
And, what a gorgeous couple they make!
Along with heeding Somerhalder's inevitable advice about press intrusion, Wesley might also be keeping his relationship on the quiet due to the fact he and his former wife Torrey DeVitto divorced just under a year ago.
Although it was an amicable split, and Tonkin and Wesley started dating each other months after the break-up, the press wastes no time spewing up vicious rumors.
From the look of how happy this dynamic duo look together, playing it cool is clearly keeping their relationship nice and warm.
Smart move guys!
