GQ NAMES ITS 2014 “MEN OF THE YEAR”

French actor Omary Sy was awarded the GQ man of the year award by the French edition of the Gentlemen’s Quarterly in Paris on Wednesday (19 NOV. 2014) while Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen won the international star award.

Sy said winning the award felt like a gift, and then gave his personal definition of a gentleman to The Associated Press.

“A gentleman is a guy who can play the bagpipe but who never actually plays it,” he said.

Mikkelsen said he was glad to be now considered a gentleman.

“I have been notoriously known for being the guy who was wearing Adidas all my life and now I am part of the gentleman club,” he said. “I am very honored to be that.”

Belgian comedian Stephane de Groodt won an award for best comedian and Alain Ducasse won the best chef award.
