"He’s handsome, he’s suave, and that accent"

Henry Golding has become the first Asian cover star to grace GQ’s ‘Men Of The Year’.

The Huffington Post reports that Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding has been chosen as GQ’s cover star for its ‘Men Of The Year’ edition.

Golding is one of the magazine’s four men and women of the year cover stars for 2018, joining Michael B. Jordan, Serena Williams and Jonah Hill.

The British Malaysian actor who was chosen for his breakout success is the first Asian to grace the cover of the GQ edition.

“When Crazy Rich Asians hit theaters this summer, Hollywood held its breath waiting for the box office results, but anyone who knew anything about … well, anything, could’ve predicted it’d be the smash it was,” the magazine wrote.

“Beyond its success — and what a success it was — it minted Henry Golding as one of the industry’s must-hire new actors, and for good reason: He’s handsome, he’s suave, and that accent. A nation swooned, and GQ did too.”

Responding via Twitter, Golding wrote “Something we have been so excited to share with you all, what an honour… Thankyou for recognising me as one of your Men of the year. It is beyond 🔥The spread is delicious, can’t wait for you all to see it by and styling by @jimmooregq, words by “.

Crazy Rich Asians director and co stars Jon M Chu, Ken Jeong and Harry Shum Jr all congratulated Golding via social media.
