Oh baby!

We’re crushing hard on Henry Golding as he makes history as the first Asian man to grace a GQ cover

We’re totally crushing right now…

Actor Henry Golding made history this week when he was named one of GQ’s Men of the Year, becoming the first Asian man to grace the cover of the glossy, high-profile magazine.

31-year-old Golding, a proud LGBTQ ally, made his feature film debut earlier this year, in the summer blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians, which smashed box-office records as the biggest rom-com in a decade.

Up next, he will play appear in the indie film Monsoon, playing a gay British-Vietnamese refugee who returns home with his parents’ ashes.

The actor shared the cover on Instagram, along with the caption: “Something we have been so excited to share with you all, what an honor… Thank you @gq for recognizing me as one of your men (and women) of the year”.

But he isn’t letting his newfound fame get to his head.

“I don’t get too carried away by the glittery, glamorous side of Hollywood,” he tells GQ. “Because I know what really matters in the world. I understand all of this is super fleeting. It could be the fact that I’m a flavor of the month.”

Hmmm. We suspect he’ll be around for much longer than just a month.
