Idris Elba is People's Sexiest Man Alive

Idris Elba has received an "ego boost" after being named the sexiest man alive by USA celebrity magazine People.

He said: "I was like, 'Come on, no way".

He went on to say, "I'm really, really happy with that, man. Thank you so much, People magazine for making me sexiest man in the world. I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today". As the actor himself told People, "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure".

And for some fans, they were just glad last year's victor, Blake Shelton, didn't take home the title again.

"I was very tall and skinny", Elba said.

Hilariously, Elba looked unimpressed with his cover image at first before admitting, "It's fantastic".

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. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay?"

He shared an image on Instagram with the caption: "Who'd have thought it!" I got picked on a little bit, ' he continued to the publication. "But what's even more important is your vote in the midterm elections".

Tell everyone that you were a close second. But again, as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. "Your vote can make a difference!"

Elba has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston, from previous relationships as he cites being able to witness their births as 'the biggest and best thing ever'.

He has two children, and proposed to his model fiancee Sabrina Dhowre, 29, in February. "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers", he revealed during the interview. And nab your own official Sexiest Man Alive shirt from our brand new Amazon store!
