Sexiest man shaken, not stirred by award
LONDON: He has been touted as a contender for the next James Bond film. And Idris Elba, above, has certainly shown he has 007’s good looks after being named this year’s “sexiest man alive”.
The actor, 46, says the accolade from People magazine in the US has given him an “ego boost”.
“I was, like: ‘Come on, no way. Really?’,” he told the magazine.
“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. It was a nice surprise – an ego boost for sure.”
He added: “My mom is going to be very proud.”
Previous winners include David Beckham, Dwayne Johnson and singer Adam Levine. | Daily Mail
