"Paul and I didn't get along at the beginning of the show", Dobrev - who played Elena Gilbert on the CW series from 2009-17 - said on the Directionally Challenged podcast, according to E! Dobrev shared that surprising revelation during an episode of a podcast hosted by her former Vampire Diaries co-stars Candice King and Kayla Ewell.

In fact, the acting can be so stellar and the chemistry (whether love or the opposite) so electric, on-screen couples, the object of a character's affection or best friends on shows and movies are often thought to be in love or the best of friends in real life. I now realize that there is a fine line between love and hate and we actually despised each other so much that it showed as love but... "We really just didn't get along the first maybe five months of shooting".

While their on-camera chemistry had many viewers convinced that there was real-life love blossoming behind the scenes, Dobrev, 30, set the record straight. Dobrev admitted that of all her castmates from The Vampire Diaries, she's actually closest with Wesley now that the show has ended and they've all gone their separate ways.

"He was so f-- right".

Speaking to why they butted heads in the first place, Dobrev admits, "When you work with anyone or are spending a lot of time with anyone, little things are going to annoy you about them. Of everyone, I think I probably see him the most and hang out with him the most", she clarified later in the conversation. "We were together every day, we were kissing and doing all this stuff but we didn't have sex, so yeah, just like a marriage", she adds with a laugh.

Nina Dobrev even admitted that though she never expected to be best friends with Paul Wesley, she is happy they have such a great relationship today. Somerhalder, 40, now shares one child with wife Nikki Reed, 31.

Last year, the Dobrev and Wesley reunited when they ran into each other in New York City.
