"Vampires Diaries" star Nina Dobrev knows that her love life is of interest to the masses.
With a roster of rumored beaus like Ben McKenzie and Orlando Bloom, the 25-year-old beauty recently fought back against the tabloids by Instagramming a selfie with some of her "Vampire Diaries" co-stars, captioning it, "Apparently I have SOOOO many boyfriends. Here's four more."
Joking aside, the starlet says that the frenzy over her personal life is exhausting, stressful and "really just a pain" in her "butt."
"I laugh at it at this point," she told HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker in an appearance to promote her new film "Let's Be Cops" on Aug. 4. "[But] honestly, I need to get, like, a steady boyfriend so people can stop speculating."
"It's getting annoying to have to like, text all my friends," she continued. "I have a lot of girlfriends, they're all texting me at once [and] it's just like, my thumbs are starting to hurt."
Dobrev doesn't "typically" comment on her private life, and said that while she doesn't engage in tabloid rumors, her friends frequently text her about who they read she's canoodling with.
"When you start getting text messages from your friend with a link to something and they'll be like, 'Oh my God, are you really dating this person?' And I'll be like, 'Yeah, I talked to them last night for a second,' or 'Yeah, I saw them at this party.' And especially after Comic-Con, apparently I was 'dating' like ten people," she recounted. "So I had a real busy weekend!"
