43-year old actor Idris Elba made it as the Maxim Cover September 2015 issue as the first solo man, without any women.
Here is what the Editor-In-Chief Kate Lanphear had to say about Idris Elba:
“For me, he was really the perfect embodiment of what I think the new Maxim man is. He’s multi-dimensional, he’s complex, he’s sophisticated, but he’s down to earth. It was funny when on set, I was like, ‘Is there anything this guy can’t do?’ He’s an award-winning actor, he’s a DJ, his capsule clothing line for Superdry is about to hit stores. The guy broke the [British] land speed record which hasn’t been touched since like 1928. He’s sort of a living, breathing superhero,”
We love Idris Elba. As if a talented black man with a British accent and handsome figure is not enough, he is also one committed and hardworking man who is hardly in the public eye critique.
This is new for Maxim. We hope subscribers and fans embrace it positively.
