Idris Elba Named “Sexiest Man Alive” By PEOPLE Magazine

Forget Man Crush MondayIdris Elba is a man crush everyday for millions around the world. A status which PEOPLE magazine has cemented by naming him 2018’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”

Elba, who is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, beams a-front of the publication’s newest issue. But within its inner-pages reveals he was pleasantly surprised by the honor.

Upon hearing the news, the 46-year-old ‘Luther’ star said:

“I was like, ‘come on, no way. Really?’ Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out.

I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today’. But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise – an ego boost for sure.”

He went on to stress that his aesthetic wasn’t always what it is today. He said:

“I was very tall and skinny. And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay? I got picked on a little bit.

But again, as soon as I could grow a moustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers.”

 

Though thankful for the title, Elba seized the moment to pivot attention to paramount issues, namely the importance of voting in the mid-term elections:

Who’d have thought it! Thank you @people & all the fans for naming me 

Congrats!

Peep his video feature…
