Oh, how far they have come. Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley are friends and former co-stars who share a love of puppies and a pretty spectacular joke about Justin Bieber being their “love child.” Dobrev is no stranger to weighing in on popular news stories, and one caught hers and Wesley’s eyes, with the two bonding over Bieber.
It all started on E! News’ Instagram page, where the outlet stumbled upon a shocking sight. Apparently, Paul Wesley bore a striking resemblance to pop star Justin Bieber when he was a teen, and there are pictures to prove it. Wesley not only saw the post, but also responded to it, with Nina Dobrev chiming in for further Vampire Diaries fun. First, the Bieber/Wesley look-a-like evidence (start at photo 5/6):
I “belieb” it, and so do Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev. The Vampire Diaries co-stars took to the Instagram post’s comments section to weigh in on their “long-lost son.” After all, the resemblance is uncanny, and one does not have to be under the influence of Wesley and Ian Somerhalder’s Brother’s Bond bourbon to see it. Here is what Dobrev and Wesley jokingly said in the comments:
Paul Wesley: He’s my son.
Nina Dobrev: @paulwesley our love child
Paul Wesley: @nina #proudparents #wemissyouson #callusback
There is nothing quite like watching actors’ bond over the son they never had. These two are hilarious, and their interaction is a far cry from the tense one Paul Wesley had on Twitter with his former Vampire Diaries co-star/Legacies actor Matthew Davis not-too-long-ago. Wesley and Davis clashed over politics. No matter what side of the divide you landed on, Justin Bieber’s resemblance to Wesley will probably bring a lot of fans together.
In related news, for something you can file this under hard-to-believe, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley were not always the best of friends. Long before the Justin Bieber jokes, Dobrev revealed that things got off to a rocky start between The Vampire Diaries co-stars. Wesley shared that the situation provided a learning lesson, and they eventually became incredibly good friends who enjoy having fun with each other.
Nowadays, the two are even joking that Justin Bieber is their “love child.” While Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley have super-busy careers, it is lovely that they still had time to stop by and leave a comment on the story. Will Justin Bieber end up responding to the surprising look-a-like post? Stay tuned. Do you see the resemblance? Take a second to weigh in via the poll below.
