It sounds like Nina Dobrev would make for a great immortal beloved in real life, too!
"I don't like any kind of negativity," the Vampire Diaries star and Nylon's August cover girl told the magazine. "I try to be good to everyone, whether it's a love, a friend, an ex. I'll always try to treat people the way I want to be treated."
And has she succeeded in her quest? Well, costar Ian Somerhalder, who of course also happens to be her ex-boyfriend, certainly thinks so.
"She always lets me have the last fry," he quipped to the mag.
Oh, those two. (Here's to forever, onscreen and off.)
Meanwhile, Dobrev also talks about the latest challenge on her plate, starring in the big-screen comedy Let's Be Cops. The brunette beauty, so used to angsty, sexy melodrama, admitted that it was "terrifying" to switch to comedy.
"I can get to an emotional place and start crying, but there's pressure when you think you have to be funny...You really have to be uninhibited and fearless," she said.
But it turns out that Somerhalder isn't the only leading man she's impressed lately.
Damon Wayans Jr., who costars with her in the movie, told Nylon, "She really knows how to play a scene—and she's down to do anything for a laugh."
As for her continued work in The Vampire Diaries, Somerhalder said admiringly that Dobrev "learned how to access the evil in herself—the evil that resides in everyone. She always wants to do her own stunts. Sometimes they let her, sometimes they don't."
So it sounds as though the brunette beauty will do anything for a gasp, too!
The 25-year-old actress also acknowledged that it's strange to be in a position where complete strangers are so well-versed about her life.

"I really do forget [about that dynamic]," Dobrev told Nylon. "People feel like they know you when you're in their living room, weekly, for five years. But I always get uncomfortable when people know more about me than I know about them."
But it's not as if she's in any rush to get less famous or anything.
"Success is the only option—well, the highest level of success is the only option," she said regarding her plans for the future. "I'm kind of extremist in that way."
