Idris Elba Is The Sexiest Man Alive
Idris Elba is the sexiest man alive, according to a popular magazine, and we can’t help but to agree.
People Magazine released it’s announcement of the “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2018. This is the 33rd issue of this title that they’ve given out since first giving it to Mel Gibson back in 1985. This year, People proclaimed that the titular man is none other than UK heartthrob Idris Elba.
Elba, humble as always, was surprised when he heard the news.
“Come on, no way. Really?,” said the 46-year-old. “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,” he clarified. “It was a nice surprise – an ego boost for sure.”
He also later posted on twitter to say:
“Thank you @people & all the fans for naming me #SexiestManAlive. Don’t forget ot grab your issue this week.”
