Actor Idris Elba Named Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine

People magazine crowned British actor Idris Elba as its Sexiest Man Alive for 2018 on Monday and he wasted no time in getting political while promoting the new title.

We're just disappointed Shelton didn't fly out to London to hand him a "Sexiest Man Alive" crown or something.

"People really think of "sexy" beyond physical appearance-although that certainly helps", editor-in-chief Jess Cagle told NBC 4 NY three years ago.

The honor came as a surprise to the "Thor" star. Really?'" he said. "Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. "Thank you so much People magazine for making me sexiest man in the world, I'm loving that", he said before bending his arm and flexing his bicep.

Revealed on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', Elba appeared via satellite link to talk about his newest accolade.

But Ash said there have been ongoing discussions with Amazon about other opportunities. Officials in Crystal City probably shouldn't schedule a victory parade just yet.

"I was very tall and skinny", says the 6'3" Elba. I got picked on a little bit. But as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers".

Elba was among the favourites to take over Daniel Craig as James Bond before ruling himself out earlier this year, telling Sky News he was "having a laugh" over the rumours.

On Twitter, the star said: "Who'd have thought it!"

Fallon had Elba perform poses to match the magazine's cover description of him as a "sweet, smouldering superstar".

The 46 year-old Brit, who shot to fame as Russel "Stringer" Bell in HBO's the Wire, used his win to urge Americans to turn out for Tuesday's midterm elections. There's more of that really complex character that I love to play'. 'I think everyone should adopt the philosophy that tomorrow is not promised so just go for it today, man.
