Da Man connects with Aladdin star Mena Massoud for its June/July 2019 cover story. Mitchell Nguyen McCormack photographs the star, while Lisette Mora looks after styling. Mora outfits Massoud in designer fashions from the likes of Prada. Discussing his breakout role as the title character of Aladdin, Massoud talks about the associated fame.
To be honest, I’m not sure that’s true, or at least I haven’t experienced it yet. Massoud continues,
Many people still don’t know who I am and those who do say my name wrong a lot. I don’t mind that at all, I just mean to say that I haven’t really felt a change. Not yet.
