GQ features 'Moonlight' Star Mahershala Ali on its July cover, in a cheery, beach-clad editorial that's keeping the internet buzzing. Wearing an unbuttoned Hawaiian shirt and radiating from ear-to-ear, the Oscar winner, who was launched into Hollywood fame after receiving a plethora of awards for his role in 'Moonlight,' uses this editorial as a platform to promote love and tolerance in a politically and racially charged America.
The GQ spread features Ali in a variety of colorful outfits -- all tropical in nature -- posing with the gorgeous water-side geography California has to offer. Through the editorial, Ali is profiled by Carvell Wallace, who writes about his experience meeting the award-winning actor through his own personal lens. He describes Ali as looking "in real life the way old MGM movies made leading men look on-screen," a description which is encapsulated throughout the sun-soaked and chic photoshoot.
