British heartthrob Idris Elba has finally been chosen as People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive”. Many feel the honor is long overdue as he first caught attention in his role as the drug kingpin king Stringer Bell on HBO’s The Wire. But better late than never right? Idris is just flattered over being chosen saying, “But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise…an ego boost for sure.” This is People Magazine’s 33rd year choosing their “Sexiest Man Alive” and Idris is only the second man of color selected in their history. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was the first and he was chosen for 2016’s edition.
