Cannot get status from iam.AccessKey resource

See original GitHub issue

python version: Python 3.7.4 boto3 version: 1.9.211

I am having an issue accessing the status attribute on the iam.AccessKey resource.

I can see that this attribute is suppose to be lazy-loaded upon the call, but that never happens. For example:

>>> iam = boto3.resource('iam')
>>> access_key = iam.AccessKey('user_name', 'id')
>>> print(
>>> print(access_key.status)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/Users/aidan-melen/.pyenv/versions/py37/lib/python3.7/site-packages/boto3/resources/", line 343, in property_loader
boto3.exceptions.ResourceLoadException: iam.AccessKey has no load method

Pretty sure this is a bug, but I could just be using it incorrectly.
