PHOTO: Chord Overstreet Poses Shirtless
Emma Roberts sure knows how to pick 'em. Her boyfriend, on-and-off Glee actor Chord Overstreet, posed shirtless for provocative celebrity photographer Tyler Shields — and what's posted is just the tip of the chiseled iceberg.
Shields, who has also shot Overstreet's Glee co-star Jenna Ushkowitz and her boyfriend Michael Trevino, sang the actor's praises on his web site. "You will never meet another human being like Chord Overstreet and that is an understatement! I have some incredible shots of him this is just a tease!" Shields wrote.
Shields courted controversy in September over shots of yet another Glee star, Heather Morris. In what he called "busted Barbie" shots, Shields photographed Morris with a bruise painted over one of her eyes — a choice that enraged women's rights activists for apparently making light of domestic abuse.
As a result, violent hate mail poured into Shields' pigeon hole. “It was 25,000, maybe more, of the most violent, insane things," he told the LA Times, while defending his work. “This wasn’t glorifying domestic violence. I didn’t sit down and say, ‘It would be awesome to punch the girl from Glee in the face.’ She’s clearly in makeup and doing Barbie gone nuts.”
Nothing quite so alarming for Overstreet's classic black-and-white portrait — unless you're put off by a little skin.
