Mahershala Ali Covers “W Mag”

For your viewing pleasure…

“Moonlight” star Mahershala Ali is culminating his breakout year with a magazine cover.

The actor who’s up for a Golden Globe and is receiving Oscar buzz, is featured on one of W Magazine’s Best Performances of the Year covers.

Mahershala is featured alongside Nicole Kidman and shares a bit about how he relates to his character Juan in “Moonlight.”


“Juan, my character in Moonlight, dies off-camera. The audience never learns how or why. My father died when I was 20. He lived 3,000 miles away, but we were extremely close. I didn’t miss him right away—it took me three years before I went through my mourning. In Moonlight, it’s the same with Juan: His disappearance lingers in your mind.”

He also posed for this sexy snap.


Mahershala, 42, also recently revealed that he and his wife are expecting their first child.
