Gov. Christie On Time Magazine Cover: I Look Like Tony Soprano

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has made the cover of this week's Time magazine, but he's not thrilled with how he's portrayed.

"Wait till you see this picture on the cover of Time, I look like Tony Soprano," Christie said.

The governor said the photograph, along with the headline "The Boss" makes him look like a mobster.

Italian-American organizations are upset and agree, saying the picture was clearly intended to look like a mugshot.

Christie tried to laugh off the cover, saying he's concerned it may ruin his relationship with another "boss" -- his musical idol Bruce Springrsteen.

The magazine hits newsstands Friday.
