British actor, Idris Elba has been named as the sexiest man alive 2018 by PEOPLE magazine, as the 46-year old actor joins the historic and privileged list of celebrities previously honoured with that title by the magazine.

The actor who is in line as one of those who are likely to be the next James Bond movie as the character, James Bond, and the first black James Bond, is a holder of the Order of the British Empire for his services to drama, as he caps that with this new honour as the sexiest man alive!

Idris Elba first breakthrough role as an actor was an American series, where he acted as a drug kingpin Russell “Stringer” Bell on HBO’s hit series The Wire and has since then featured in many other movie roles.

When asked about the news by the PEOPLE, Idris Elba had this to say:
“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. It was a nice surprise an ego boost for sure.” he said.

According to the magazine, Idris Elba is PEOPLE’s 33rd Sexiest Man Alive, joining a long list of Hollywood’s hottest, starting with a then-29-year-old Mel Gibson in 1985 to last year’s pick Blake Shelton.

Idris spoke about his youth, said:

“I was very tall and skinny,” says the 6’3″ Elba. “And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay? I got picked on a little bit. But as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers.”
He was an athlete at his all-boys school in London, playing first-string football, basketball, cricket, hockey, and rugby, the actor insists he went through an awkward phase first.
