GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

I have been a reg­u­lar GQ reader for a long time, but ev­ery now and again the latest fash­ions come sec­ond to real sto­ries. I was taken aback by the trans­parency of Nick Smith’s editor’s let­ter, and I rode on ev­ery word. Well done to Nick for shar­ing such per­sonal in­sights and re­mind­ing us there are more im­por­tant things in life than sea­sonal trends. AMOS, VIA EMAIL Thanks for your let­ter. It’s true that life’s chal­lenges, more than any­thing, are what make us who we are. By shar­ing our ex­pe­ri­ences, we can work to change things for the bet­ter, for ev­ery­body, and I think that’s the best ver­sion of be­ing a gen­tle­man. Meg Ma­son’s ‘Sheq’ col­umn call­ing on dads to be just that is fan­tas­tic. Per­fect and on point! DANIEL, VIA TWIT­TER Couldn’t agree more. And we’re happy to re­port the good lady Ma­son has nailed it again – see for your­self on p58.

Thank you for not only pro­vid­ing great ma­te­rial in your mag­a­zine, which is streets ahead of any other, but also for giv­ing it to us in such a fan­tas­tic for­mat. The ipad ver­sion is easy to use and the in­ter­ac­tive mea­sures re­ally make it ex­cit­ing to read. DIM, VIA EMAIL I al­ways liked Ryan Gosling and af­ter read­ing your fea­ture, not only do I find him even more lik­able, but quite sen­si­tive and hon­est, too. MICK, VIA GQ.COM.AU The Gos is per­fect. Got it. Great to see Ryan front-and-cen­tre – and a very well-writ­ten fea­ture on him, too. Know­ing what he went through to achieve suc­cess is some­thing we could all adopt in our daily lives. It was in­ter­est­ing to read how his early re­bel­lion boiled down to his feel­ings of “am­bi­tion”, which is a line that rings true in many peo­ple with a cre­ative streak. A fas­ci­nat­ing read. ADAM, VIA EMAIL Fan­tas­tic is­sue! Though I’m a bit over Gosling – couldn’t you have pho­to­shopped a pot belly in there or some­thing? I’m wor­ried my girl­friend is pay­ing those pages a lit­tle too much at­ten­tion. CHRIS, VIA GQ.COM.AU We hear you, the man can do no wrong. And not to worry – we’re sure she’s read­ing it for the ar­ti­cles. Ryan Gosling is a real risk-taker and what an in­spi­ra­tion! Love the is­sue – such a good read! DO­RI­ANO, VIA GQ.COM.AU Re­ally liked the health and fit­ness sec­tion, fea­tur­ing Nick Jonas. Not that any­one would ever ad­mit to Jonas envy, but the dude is tes­ti­mony to a healthy lifestyle. JOHN, VIA EMAIL Gosling was a great choice, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the way he chal­lenges him­self, takes risks and walks his own path. It’s some­thing ev­ery man should do once in a while. HUM­BERTO, VIA FACE­BOOK
