Paul’s interview for Young Hollywood

I almost don’t want to be the chosen one, because audience – they want whatever they can’t have. So I almost wanted her to choose Damon because I want Stefan and Elena to be the couple people would go: “Wouldn’t it be nice if they were together?” Because your imagination is so much more powerful than what is presented to you. What is being thrown in your face, you don’t want it. So I’m really secretly hoping that Damon/Elena get together so everyone gets really sick of them. And then they’d say “Stefan would be so great for her because it’s just so annoying watching those two on screen all the time!”
