Idris Elba becomes first male to land on cover of ‘Maxim’
British actor Idris Elba (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”, “The Wire”, The Office) is now the first solo male to grace the cover of “Maxim”, a magazine known for its female photoshoots.
The 42 year old is featured rocking a leopard-print funnel coat on the front of the September issue.
Editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear says: “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.”
