#Crown: Idris Elba Becomes First Man To Cover Maxim

August 5, 2015  |  


Since last year, we haven’t heard or seen much of our boyfriend Idris Elba in the spotlight. Thanks to Maxim Magazine that has changed.

For the September issue of Maxim, Idris  graced the cover and historically became the first male to do so. Traditionally, various models or female celebrities would don Maxim covers in revealing outfits but its editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear revealed to Racked why they opted for a male this time around:

“There was no one else in the world more bada** than Idris. 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.”

In his Maxim interview, Idris spoke candidly about his sex life, love for auto-racing and whether or not he will become the first Black James Bond. Our English Bae also completed the sexiest photoshoot we’ve ever seen him in and makes us want to pour one for K.Michelle.

The September issue of Maxim hits newsstands today.
