Idris Elba is named People's Sexiest Man Alive

Idris Elba

"Really?" Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out.

On Monday's broadcast of "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon", Idris claimed his mother would be "very, very proud." . "Your vote can make a difference!" he said.

The honor came as a surprise for Elba, who called it an "ego boost". "I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today".

"I was very tall and skinny", said Elba, who is 6ft 3ins. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay?" I got picked on a little bit, ' he continued to the publication. "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers." he told People magazine.

The 46-year-old "Avengers: Infinity War" star frequently uses Twitter and is a popular topic of discussion on the social media site with more than 1.4 million Tweets about him this year. He's also appeared on the American version of The Office and is likely best known to comic book fans as Heimdall from Marvel Studios' Thor movies.

Only kidding, we're firmly of the opinion that the star of The Wire and Luther has always been one of the coolest people alive and he now has the sexified accolade to show just how much sexy sex he sexes. He was also named Essence's Sexiest Man of the year in 2013. Back then, Mel Gibson, who was 29 at the time, received the honor.

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

What do you think of Idris Elba being named Sexiest Man Alive by People?

Idris is the 33rd man to be mentioned in the position, after Blake Shelton, Dwayne Johnson, Adam Levine and George Clooney among others.

First, let us take a moment to pay our respects to the Sexist Men No Longer Alive.
