FROM MTV ACT BLOG: Ian Somerhalder cares a lot about helping others. In fact, he cares about it so much that he started the Ian Somerhalder Foundation to help the environment and animals, and wants you to get involved volunteering as well.
Our friends over at MTV Act Blog caught up with the sexy "Vampire Diaries" star and talked to him at length about why he chose to support the organizations he did and whether he would date someone who doesn't volunteer ("That would be a deal breaker," he said). But, perhaps most importantly, Ian answered the question we're all dying to know: Would Christian Grey volunteer at the Ian Somerhalder Foundation?
There's nothing "Awkward" about giving back—and Ashley Rickards is among the stars pitching in to prove it.
Tonight, MTV will air "Restore the Shore," a fundraising event to benefit Seaside Heights, New Jersey, following the devastating effects of superstorm Sandy.
The one-hour special, featuring performances by Gym Class Heroes (with special guest Oh Land) and "American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips, will air tonight on MTV at 11/10c. So be sure to tune in and give back!
"The Amazing Spider-Man" star Andrew Garfield is proof you don't need to sling a web to be a hero. (Or, for that matter, make us feel all the feels, all over.)
The actor stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" today, where the funny lady offered up a decent proposal: For each dance move Andrew performed to her exacting standards, Shutterfly would donate $1,000 to his charity Worldwide Orphans Foundation. We're a little embarrassed to admit we doubted the 29-year-old's prowess on the dance floor. Thanks for proving us wrong, Andrew.
Watch the clip after the jump!

Apparently Katniss Everdeen's heroic demeanor has rubbed off on Jennifer Lawrence.
"The Hunger Games" star was taking her dog for a stroll outside her Santa Monica home when she stumbled upon a young woman passed out on the lawn, according to E! Online. Jennifer immediately rushed to help the woman while someone else in the area called 911, staying with her until the paramedics arrived. After determining that she did not need to be transported to the hospital, the paramedics cleared the girl to leave.
Ian Somerhalder is currently hanging out in the Philippines shooting a campaign for the fashion brand Penshoppe as one of their A-list "All Stars," along with actors Ed Westwick and Zac Efron. Where do we sign up to visit this set?!
But you know what they say about "all work and no play," so Ian is enjoying his time overseas by attending one of Lady Gaga's two sold-out shows in Manila and talking about the environment.
The world of entertainment never sleeps. Anything can happen while you're resting and relaxing over the weekend, which is where The Weekender comes in. Catch up on all the happenings of the past 48 hours right now!
+ Miley Cyrus made a daring clothing choice at the Billboard Music Awards when she went pants-less and bra-less in a sleek, white blazer. And you know what? We love it! The best part of fashion is taking risks and the "LOL" actress pulled it off! (MTV Style)
Nina Dobrev might have a taste for blood during the upcoming fourth season of “The Vampire Diaries,” but as the current face of the iconic Got Milk? campaign, it seems she’s just hankering for dairy products.
Nina isn’t getting a milk mustache all by herself. For the ad, she’s joined by her mama, Michaela, and she’s excited to finally get the chance to share the spotlight with her. “It’s cool. I’m in New York City. I’m launching the ‘Like Her, Like Me’ program, which is for Got Milk?” she told MTV News last week about the campaign, which is in conjunction with Seventeen magazine.
“You know, it’s funny because all my life my mom has been so supportive of me, but I’ve always been the one in front of the camera,” she said. “And now we get to both be co-stars and do this together. And when we shot it in Atlanta a few months ago, she flew out and we hung out and did spa treatments and we really turned it into this awesome bonding experience.”
Hey guys, Sunday is Robert Pattinson's birthday, and we're celebrating a bit early!
As the actor turns 26, he has a lot of great movie projects in the works like the upcoming fever-dream "Cosmopolis" and the war thriller "Mission: Blacklist." He's a busy guy—wanted by fans, press and casting directors—but he still manages to make time for those in need. From auctioning off kisses for a campaign against AIDS to donating thousands of dollars to fund charity projects, we're honoring his big day by taking a look back at all the ways he inspires us!
It's true what our parents always taught us— you can't buy happiness. But apparently you can adopt it. Miley Cyrus did so in the form of an absolutely adorable puppy named Happy.
Miley took to Twitter to announce the news and explained that the dog was left in a box outside Wal-Mart. "I don't understand how people can be so cruel," she tweeted. "That's why we named him Happy." How precious! And while she's unsure of the exact breed, she said their best guess is a rottweiler-beagle mix.
Busy Philipps just created every Disney princess fan's dream cake. We can just imagine a little girl's reaction when her parents carry this to the table from the kitchen. Oh, who are we kidding? We can just imagine our reaction if someone put this cake in front of us on our birthday, or any day really. And we bet the picture doesn't even do it justice!
We'd just like an ounce of the actress' talent, please. We can barely keep our popcorn from burning, and here she constructed Rapunzel's entire tower out of sugar, eggs and milk! She captured everything from waves in the water to dirt on the lawn and we are completely in awe. But the best part? She's auctioning it off for charity!
