Nina Dobrev’s Selfie Rules Need To Be Adopted By The World Right Now: See The Pics

Let it be known, solo selfies are gross.

If there’s one person who knows how to look fang-tastic on camera, it’s “Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev. So when she stopped by MTV’s HQ at San Diego Comic-Con and gave us some selfie pointers, we sat up and took notes, people.

1. No “gross one-person selfies.” Nina gets annoyed when people post them online and she wasn’t going to be one of those people, so she pulled our production manager, Geoff, into the shot.

2. It’s all about the angles, darling. Nina may have been born with God-given good looks, but girlfriend knows how to work her angles. Just look at those cheekbones! (Sadly, Geoff didn’t get the memo.)

3. Let there be light. Nina plays a vampire, so she knows how deadly bad lighting (or light, period) can be.

And, lest MTV’s editors think Geoff inserted himself into the selfies because a) he was hoping for his 15 minutes of fame and b) who doesn’t want to snap a pic with Nina Dobrev, the actress recorded a video to set the record straight.

Thanks, Nina – Geoff gets to keep his job!
