It’s official – Idris Elba is People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2018!
The 46-year-old actor was announced as this year’s title holder during The Tonight Show on Monday (November 5) in New York City.
“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,” Idris told People in his cover story.
Idris was also a popular choice for the honor last year, but it was given to Blake Shelton.
