Chris Colfer Covers 'August Man' February 2013 (Exclusive)

Chris Colfer takes the cover of August Man Malaysia‘s February 2013 issue, on newsstands February 1.

Here is what the 22-year-old Glee actor had to share with the mag:

On his developing interest in fashion: “I’ve always thought fashion should be something that makes you feel good on the inside and outside. I’m slowly coming around to the whole psychology behind it. My favorite designers are Ben Sherman, Dior and Alexander McQueen.”

On his hopes on how the industry will react to Struck By Lightning: “For the last year or so, I’ve been the 22-year-old kid that people pat on the head and said ‘Oh, Chris, that’s nice.’ No one was paying attention to me unless I was Channing Tatum. With this film, I want to be taken seriously.”

On being on Glee: “I think I was cast in Glee because I was authentically believable. I could have been one of the kids on the show… in fact, I was.”

    Chris looks good.

  • Chrissy

    He is so hot.

  • michael

    He’s so hot, could take him and do a lot of stuff to his body, seriously look at him

  • Stefanie

    These photos are great. There’s also a behind-the-scenes video that goes with them that is amazing as well.

  • Jo

    Hmmm photoshop much? He looks like an elf for god’s sakes

  • Alaia

    @michael: Seriously?

  • clower

    Is that magazine only sold in Malaysia? He looks so gorgeous! ;——;

  • Jane

    @clower: No, I think you can buy it other places, but it’s easier to order it online through their website.

  • Telly

    Chris is the best thing about Glee, and these photos are stunning.

  • S Strain

    @Jo: Been wondering why he didn’t model; he has classic Vogue-type features. I think he’s quite handsome. And I’m not even in the market for a man, straight or gay – so it MUST be so :)

  • StrainAsylum

    Err…I respect Colfer much more for his talent, creativity and drive than the way he looks (as nice as that is). He may not be thrilled about singing, but he has a lovely voice with a unique range, as well as a nice acting range: good comedy to definite tear-jerking drama. Love the comedic stuff with Kurt: “Get me to a day-spa, STAT!!” and “Sue Sylvester told me she’d shave my head….and I just can’t rock that look-” are a couple of my faves.

  • Anna

    omg, congratulations on your growing up, Mr. Colfer.

    Really, he should model more.

  • Stephie

    Been wondering why he didn’t… Vogue features: great bones, lovely skin and cool looking

    I am the photographer that shot these images, just for the record we did not do much to Chris’s images, just colorations and contrast! Chris is flawless and he is such a great subject to work with, please keep supporting him as an artist! He is so good in front of the camera, google search the BHTS video, you guys will see it all.

  • clower

    Really!!!Thank you sooo much!!

  • Ellye

    chris is a good looking man but stop shitting us lolll – this is photoshop bigtime, sometime you photographer kind of ”abuse” with photoshop and take too much liberty wi@Chunky:

  • Ellye

    Thumb UP – Some just don’t like hearing the truth – definitely over photoshop, i was like whoaaa Colfer is looking GOOD. but i don’t think he look like a elf lolllll just good looking weird unnatural@Jo:

  • Sonia

    Ignore Kerrie. Chris looks stunning. Thanks for commenting @Chunky

  • Steph

    Wow he’s absolutely stunning. And yes, I agree that he should consider doing more modelling because those defined cheek bones and bone structure and gorgeous eyes should not go to waste!

  • http://MrChunkyExpress Chunky

    Listen my fellow friend in JJ! In the world of fashion & celebs photography, there is always “some” post involved to make sure the artist look good and presentable in the media, like I’ve said earlier there is some post on skin and mainly focus contrast and coloration and that is 100% the truth, we do not do anything that make the artist look unnatural, people are so caught up with the word “photoshop”, listen, all I really care about here is making this amazing actor Chris Colfer look as handsome and natural as possible, I don’t think your commons are neg at all, all I ask of you is to just enjoy the photo of your favorite actor, rather then try to do anything you can to tear it apart, off course you are entitle to your vision on these images, I just want to say this image is not over retouched. @Clower

  • http://MrChunkyExpress Chunky

    @Steph: Totally 100% agreed!

  • Jane

    Chunky, ignore the trolls. There’s certain people that go around tearing people down just because they can.

  • Connie

    @Chunky: These photos are gorgeous! I think this is my favorite photo shoot for Chris Colfer because they do look so natural. I hope you guys work together again in the future! I loved watching the BTS video, too. Very interesting to see how this comes together.

  • clower

    no no you @ the wrong person. I absolutely agree with you, and I totally understand what you’re saying. I’m very grateful that you made those photoshoots, and Chris looks stunning! Thank you for the wonderful pictures!

  • SuddenlySeymour

    Love these photographs! He’s captured in a way that makes him look very sophisticated and kind.

  • Caroline

    Wow. Gorgeous photos. Chris is really handsome now.

  • Kelly

    I’ve met Chris, have my own pictures of him, and the man does NOT NEED PHOTOSHOP. he seriously looks this amazing in person – he is just one really attractive guy, so I believe Chunky that there probably wasn’t much done to the photos.

  • Chunky

    @clower: @clower: I really appreciate it – Thank you for the support! Chris is so excited and happy with these photos, we just glad the fans love them too. :)

  • http://@EternityKlaine Pops

    Thank you sooo much for these protos @Chunky!!!! I hope you do another shoot with Chris in the future too. Great photographer and great model alwyas equals a phenomenal combination.

  • CCshipper

    Love these pics, but I can’t find this issue with Chris as cover, I can only find a Feb issue with Leonardo DiCaprio as cover. Are there 2 versions of Feb issue? I’m confused :(

  • http://MrChunkyExpress Chunky

    @CCshipper: Chris’s cover is inside the mag and online on Ipad only! Leon bomb our cover, but we understand, thank you for all your supports!

  • StrainAsylum

    LOVE the look. Very classic, very stylish. Colfer has certainly grown up in the last 4 yrs…and quite well. His vocal range seems much stronger, too; loved “Bring Him Home”. Have ALWAYS loved his acting performances; he’s terrific in comedy and drama, either way.
