Ian Somerhalder has denied that he’ll be portraying Christian Grey in the upcoming movie adaptation of “50 Shades of Grey,” but he’s clearly channeling the BDSM fiend in these shots from the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar China because he is TORTURING us. Photographer Yin Chao has captured the “Vampire Diaries” star at his Smolderhalder best — and the cat looks pretty cool, too.
Don’t give up hope on his casting in the much-anticipated movie, Ian/Christian fans. Maybe his denial is just another in the celebrity trend of lying to the media about upcoming projects? (*cough* ‘N Sync *cough*)
