Idris Elba Named People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018!

People Unites The Nation By Naming Idris Elba 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive

British actor Idris Elba has been named as People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018, the magazine revealed Tuesday.

"With Idris' smooth British accent, the salt-and-pepper beard, to his well-built 6" 3 frame, to that million dollar smile, that he was given the title is no mystery to anyone - except for the 46-year-old actor himself. Really?'" he said. "Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, "Yeah, you are kind of sexy today". "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure", he had stated.

The star was preceded by Blake Shelton who won last year's coveted title much to the surprise of many.

"I was very tall and skinny", said Elba, who is 6ft 3ins. Elba was the first runner-up for the honor in 2013.

Golden Globe-winning Elba is the 33rd Hollywood star to be named the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive since the annual campaign started in 1985.

His most retweeted tweet so far was a cheeky closeup photo of his face with a filter in which he wrote, "My name's Elba, Idris Elba".

Though he played football, basketball and cricket at his all-boys school in London, Elba, who is the only child of African immigrants, said he was a target of bullies. "But what's even more important is your vote in the midterm elections. I got picked on a little bit". "Your vote can make a difference!" he said.

Elba told People how he reacted to the news. But as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block.

The actor has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston, from previous relationships. "Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers". The phrase "Sexiest Man Alive" was trending following the announcement.
