Bri­tish ac­tor ques­tions me­dia in­tru­sion

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Bri­tish ac­tor Idris Elba has ques­tioned the need for sto­ries about the pri­vate lives of ac­tors dur­ing the red car­pet Lon­don pre­miere of his new film “100 Streets”. ‘The Wire’ and ‘Star Trek Be­yond’ ac­tor spoke af­ter Bri­tain’s Prince Harry is­sued a rare state­ment on Tues­day con­demn­ing “a wave of abuse and ha­rass­ment” into the pri­vate life of his Amer­i­can girl­friend, ac­tress Meghan Markle. “Press have got to do a job, haven’t they? That’s it.

But, you know, the bot­tom line is that real peo­ple are real peo­ple even though we’re ac­tors. Any­way,” Elba told Reuters on Tues­day. Elba, 44, used strong lan­guage on Twit­ter last month to shoot down me­dia sto­ries link­ing him ro­man­ti­cally to Amer­i­can pop star Madonna. Lon­don-based drama “100 Streets”, which also stars ac­tress Gemma Arter­ton, is to be re­leased in Bri­tish cine­mas on Friday. — Reuters
