GQ chose three men to cover the 21st-annual ‘Men of the Year’ issue. The cover stars include actor Ryan Reynolds, althete Usain Bolt and the legendary Warren Beatty who has been nominated for fourteen Academy Awards.
The 40-year-old actor Ryan Reynolds talks playing Deadpool, coming to terms with his father’s passing, and falling completely in love with Blake Lively while Usain Bolt admits he’s “a lazy person” and defends his post-Olympic party antics.
“I’m a lazy person,” Bolt told GQ. “I’ll call someone upstairs and say, ‘Pass me the remote!’ I like to chill out.”
In his last five World Championships appearances Bolt has won 11 gold medals and two silvers.
Bolt defended his post-Olympics antics when he was snapped in bed with a Brazilian student following a night out in Rio – despite having a girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, back in Jamaica. His words: “The British press is always trying to make me out to be this bad guy who loves women and how all I do is women and stuff. You can’t judge different culture by your own culture. In England when you get famous the first thing you do is get married and have kids. In Jamaica it’s different.”
Warren Beaty spoke on a sundry of issues including his first big screen debut – Splendor in the Grass in 1961.
“I remember having a meeting in Cannes… It must’ve had something to do with the film festival in 1961. Me and all these great Russian directors who I’d never met were sitting around—Kalatozov and Chukrai and this whole group—and we were talking about Splendor in the Grass, and they were being very complimentary. At a certain point, one of them stood up and said, ‘We like movie very much. Acting very good. The movie very good. But one thing we don’t understand.’ And the room went silent for a minute, and I said, ‘Yeah?’ He said, ‘Why don’t they f*ck?’ ”
