Maggie Grace is "still very good friends" with Ian Somerhalder.

The 'Taken 3' star admits she no longer has the energy to be in a relationship with another actor, but insists she is on good terms with the 'Vampire Diaries' star, who she split from in 2009 after a year of dating.

The 31-year-old beauty told the February issue of New You magazine: "I haven't dated too many actors. 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."

The former couple met on the set of 'Lost'.

While Ian, 36, recently got engaged to Nikki Reed, 26, after six months of dating, Maggie is currently in a relationship with a mystery man and admits she is very happy.

She said: "It's sometimes a dance, managing my time, but since I have a secure base and feel anchored, I'm able to take risks in work and life. I think of relationships as having a really safe place with someone where you are, and making an effort to show up everyday - to see them and feel seen, especially as an actor when you're already pretending to be other people all the time. It's an incredible gift to feel seen by one person; a culture of two."
