LeBron James Supposedly Bumped Ryan Reynolds Off GQ’s September Cover

Being Ryan Reynolds must be pretty sweet. He’s good-looking, married to a hottie, and wealthy, not to mention has great abs but also looks good wearing clothes. But all his charms were reportedly not enough to hang on to his September cover spot on GQ, a magazine with a wandering eye that settled on someone with more buzz, intrigue, and — let’s face it — muscles: LeBron James. GQ won’t comment on the issue or hold any awkward press conferences with Reynolds standing despondently behind them to announce this, but sources say James’s shoot was in the works for weeks before his Miami announcement.

While the world waits for illicit text messages about how badly GQ wanted James, and how they promised the shoot would wear him out, more September cover confirmations have been announced! Like Blake Lively for Interview and Jessica SImpson for Lucky. Below, our most up-to-date list of September covers:
