Polo model turned actor Tyson Beckford turns heads whenever he goes, but he really had tennis fans twisting in their seats at the US Open this week. He couldn’t keep his hands off of ex-girlfriend, Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik. The two stunners were also seen at the runways of New York Fashion Week where Shaik was on the job for label Tome.
But it’s not all fun and games and groping for Beckford. He’s been working on two new films (although he does make it look easy). The first is Addicted, a sexy thriller based on the best-selling erotic thriller by the novelist known as Zane. Beckford plays Corey, one of the men who successfully tempts working mom Zoe Reynard (Sharon Leal) into a sexually-charged fantasy life far removed from her married-with-children life, until they violently collide. The second film is a drama–and it too plays on Beckford’s good looks. In Chocolate City, Beckford plays a stripper whose popularity is fading when a new, younger stripper (rapper/actor Romeo Miller, aka Lil’ Romeo) walks into the club and charms the pants off himself in front of an audience including Vivica A. Fox and Carmen Electra.
