People's 'Sexiest Man Alive' for 2018 is Idris Elba

06 November 2018

"Really?" the British actor told People when he found out he was their pick.

Elba, who was among the favourites to take over from Daniel Craig as James Bond before ruling himself out earlier this year, said he endured an awkward stage while growing up. Now, he's finally got the recognition he deserves.

The People, has named Hollywood actor, Idris Elba, as its Sexiest Man Alive for 2018.

Jimmy Fallon had the honor of announcing the victor of People magazine's annual "Sexiest Man Alive" on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and we're pretty sure no one is going to disagree with this selection. "Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers".

The 46-year-old first rose to fame playing Russell "Stringer" Bell in HBO's The Wire.

The actor and DJ told People that the honor was "an ego boost for sure".

He said: "Who'd have thought it!" "Your vote can make a difference!" he said.

Elba appears on the cover of a special double issue of People that arrives on newsstands on Friday. Following the rather unexpected choice of Blake Shelton as the 2017 victor, fans of the "Avengers: Infinity War" actor have been sharing their thoughts.

He proposed to Dhowre in February, getting down on one knee on stage at London, England's Rio Theatre before a screening of his film "Yardie".

Elba has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston, from previous relationships as he cites being able to witness their births as 'the biggest and best thing ever'. "They like the idea of a guy who would be a good husband and father". 'I think everyone should adopt the philosophy that tomorrow is not promised so just go for it today, man.
