Usain Bolt Talks "Wining" Women, and Retiring on Top with GQ Magazine

GQ Magazine sat down with the fastest man alive Usain Bolt to get a glimpse of is everyday life. In the article entitled “Usain Bolt on Winning Gold, "Wining" Women, and Retiring on Top,” he spoke, women, retirement and life in general.

It is hard to grasp that the nine Olympics medals considered himself ‘lazy”

“I'm pretty lazy,” he tells GQ. “I'm a lazy person.”

“I'm lazy. I'll call someone upstairs and say, ‘Pass me the remote.’ ”


On his favorite thing to do when chilling

“Watching TV. That's me.” Action movies, he says. He likes them violent. He wants jaws broken and heads exploding. He liked the last Captain America movie, but the end was bullshit. He thinks the Bourne movies are good, but they're all the same. The last really good movie he saw? The Ninja Turtles movie: “It was about Krang, the villain, who came from another world and tried to take over the world with Shredder; then he betrayed Shredder and the Ninja Turtles have to save the world from this war-machine crap. It was good!”

Oh, and Veep. He digs Veep, too.


On not winning a race.

“I'm too competitive,” he says. “That's why it's time for me to go. The drive—I know it's going to start going down.”

On the British Press after a photo surfaced of Usain cuddling in bed with a woman identified as the widow of a deceased Brazilian drug lord named Dina Terro

“The British press is always trying to make me out to be this bad guy who loves women and how all I do is women and stuff.”

“I was telling this English press guy,” he says by way of response. “You can't judge a different culture by your own culture. In England when you get famous the first thing you do is get married and have kids. In Jamaica it's different—like my parents had me and they got married 11 years later.


His behavior at nightclubs

“In Jamaica, we wine on each other. It's our culture. People see it the first time, they're like, What is going on? It's like they're having sex in the club! No, that's just the culture. It's how we are.”


On Retirement

Bolt insist he will not miss the Paparazzi after he retires

“I like the simple life,” he says. “I'm from the country. And after I retire, I'm going to live in the country. I like dirt bikes and football and stuff. Just nature and just chilling.”
