The 26-year-old actress declared as much in an interview with E! News on Tuesday. Dobrev and Somerhalder were together for over two years, but the star said she was happy to hear the 36-year-old actor married Reed in April.
"We didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship," she shared. "I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine."
"When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful," she related. "They look happy and I am happy, and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that. The drama is in the media, it's not with us."
Dobrev and Somerhalder portrayed Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore on The CW series The Vampire Diaries for six seasons. The actress will depart the program after Thursday's episode, but Somerhalder will remain as the vampire antihero.
