What would Nikki Reed say? It's been almost nine years since Maggie Grace and Ian Somerhalder dated, but the Lost costars have remained close. In an interview for the February issue of New You, Grace, 31, talked about her current relationship with her ex.

"I haven’t dated too many actors," the Taken 3 star said. "I did when I was really young, for a couple of years, but it’s nothing against actors. Ian Somerhalder and I are still very good friends. You can certainly reconcile schedules with actors but it takes some doing, and I just don’t have that energy."

Apparently her ex doesn't feel the same. Somerhalder, 36, proposed to actress Nikki Reed earlier this month after six months of dating. The Twilight star, 26, is thrilled with her new fiance. 

"He's so beautiful inside and out!" Reed told Us Weekly, at the Catdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. "He's quite possibly the most amazing man that's ever walked the planet, it's crazy. I'm so lucky, I love him."
