Idris Elba Is First Man to Cover ‘Maxim’

Actor Idris Elba has become the first man to ever grace the cover of Maxim solo. The 43-year-old British star covers the September issue, one year after editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear took over and promised to do more to “invite” female readers. “We’ve never in US Maxim history had a man on the cover solo,” Lanphear told Racked. “This is the very first time, and there was one else in the world more badass than Idris.” A$AP Rocky, Gay Talese, and Fetty Wap are also featured in the “Legit Issue.”
