Idris Elba Named “Sexiest Man Alive” By PEOPLE Magazine

Published: Tuesday 6th Nov 2018 by Sam

Forget Man Crush Wednesday, Idris 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.”

Details below…

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

    People’s choices of sexiest man/woman can be very suspicious, he’s not ugly, but he’s far from being a guy that every person in the world would call s***, someone like Michael B.Jordan, David Gandy, Matt Bomer, Tyson Beckford or Zac Efron would be more suitable and universally acceptable. It’s not the first time they made a strange choice, it happened before with Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Shelton and Kate Hudson.

      You just named a bunch of people young kids on Instagram would be into. The demographic of people magazine is not young teeny/early twenties, it’s older than that. For a lot of mature women in their late 20’s and older and gay men Idris Elba is BAE and that’s people magazines demographic. Idk what you’re talking about.

        Tyler, Matt bomer and David Gandy are all grown up men in their 40s, they do not appeal to teens or early 20s.
