Things got hot and heavy for Ian Somerhalder and model Ana Beatriz Barros while shooting a campaign for Azzaro in Lake Como, Italy, on Wednesday. The Vampire Diaries star, who is the face of the brand’s men’s fragrance, wrapped his arms around his costar as they filmed on a balcony and even stopped to wipe her cheek — which may or may not have been part of the shoot.

Ian has been in Italy since he wrapped production on The Anomaly in London late last week and has taken to social media to document his trip abroad. He spent some time in Sardinia before heading to Lake Como and tweeted that the country’s beauty is “endless.”

He teased his steamy Azzaro shoot by saying that the reason he was in the coastal town is “very cool and sexy.” Ian also gave a special shout-out to Lake Como resident George Clooney, adding, “Not only is he one of my biggest heroes but he’s smart too; now I see why you live here, my friend. Solid choice.”
