Ian Somerhalder just beat George Clooney. That is, for a spot to contend for the “Most Responsible Celebrity” award for 2012.
The famous “Vampire Diaries” actor joined Livia Firth, an eco-friendly entrepreneur and wife of actor Colin Firth from UK, and Nadya Hutalong, an eco-activist celebrity from Singapore, at the top three running for the title. They were determined after the nominated ten green celebrities were narrowed down by the International Green Awards via votation.
The “Most Responsible Celebrity” award was previously known as the “Cult of Celebrity.” It basically recognizes an international public figure’s contribution to the global sustainability. This year, the ITA will announce to whom it will award the title on November 20 at Battersea Power Station in London.
