The Daily Scoop

The Wire and Luther star follows in the footsteps of David Beckham, Mel Gibson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Blake Shelton. (P.s if you’ve never seen HBO’s “The Wire” and looking to binge on something, I HIGHLY recommend it!)

Idris Elba has been named “People” magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2018.  How did he feel when they told him he got it?  He says, quote, “It was a nice surprise & an ego boost for sure.”

Of course he also had to act a little bit humble, (as they all do), quote, “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.”

Jimmy Fallon made the announcement last night on the “Tonight Show”, and Idris told him, quote, “My mum is going to be very, very proud.”
