Trevor Noah is a cover star once again after he appeared on the front of this month’s American GQ. The interview within is well worth the read too.

It’s been an unpredictable year for comedian Trevor Noah and when he was approached to be the next cover star for American GQ, the host of The Daily Show was more candid than ever during his interview. 

In the feature, he speaks about his own mental health which has been challenged in 2020 (like many of us!) while sharing his thoughts on the precarious state of politics in the USA following the recent and controversial general election which saw Joe Biden oust Donald Trump from the White House. 

A deep GQ interview with Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah is usually the one who has to interview some of the biggest personalities on the planet, but it’s quite interesting to see him on the other side of the table – where he answers the questions rather than asking him. At all times, Trevor is eloquent and insightful and his GQ cover feature is no different. 

Speaking about the complications brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, Trevor actually admitted that he’s found 2020 to be liberating when he said, ““For me, this has been one of the most liberating years mentally and emotionally, because it freed me from a lot of the paradigms and anchors that I had created for myself. For me, the coronavirus, if you look at it objectively, has stripped away a lot of the bulls***.”

Battles with depression & anxiety

He also opened up about his constant battles with depression and anxiety, revealing that his show helps take some of the weight off.

Of course, the other key highlight from the GQ cover is the stunning cover photos which have blown up on social media! Take a look below:
