The Vampire Diaries actress addressed the dating rumors and speculation Thursday at the Let’s Be Cops red carpet premiere at the ArcLight in Hollywood looking beautiful in a Zuhair Murad dress, Salvatore Ferragamo heels and Tiffany & Co. jewels.
Dobrev told E! News she can totally relate to her character, who falls for a phony cop, in the film.
“I went on a date once with a police officer, unbeknownst to me,” said the 25-year-old actress. “I thought he was a regular guy. And when I found out that he was a police officer…I wasn’t so into it. I got paranoid that I would illegally cross the street and get a ticket for jay walking. I thought he was gonna arrest me every five seconds, so it obviously didn’t go anywhere after that…Even when I’m not doing something wrong, when there’s a police officer [around], I suddenly feel guilty for nothing.”
As to all the rumors of a plethora of hook-ups with the likes of Orlando Bloom, Ben McKenzie, David Anders, and Derek Theler—and that was just over the San Diego Comic-Con weekend—Dobrev said she was surprised her friends bought into the speculation.
“If all of my personal friends that know me so well are texting me and asking me and calling me, if they’re believing it, then I couldn’t imagine what everyone else in the world is believing,” she marveled.

“I had a busy weekend at Comic-Con!” she joked. “I was linked to like 10, 15 guys apparently.
“Stay tuned for next year—I’m gonna have a kissing booth!” she said with a sly little wink.
