Whistle for the hotties! Idris Elba is one of THE sexiest men alive, claims People magazine.
Idris,the actor from Hackney, East London joined the likes of Denzel Washington and Taye Diggs as the magazine made its yearly round up. However, modest Idris doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about: “When I wake up in the morning,” he says, “I look in the mirror…I don’t know what everyone else is looking at! In general the word ‘sexy’ isn’t applied to black men. That word has been thrown at me a few times so I have to say I own it. If it gives me and other black men another definition, then great. I can live with what.” Along with the luscious Idris, actors Mehcad Brooks and Michael Ealy also made the People hotlist cut.
Bradley Cooper, who was placed at the top of the list, graced the cover of the magazine, but Idris still showed relentless appeal as he told People: “Women love when I smile…they’re always saying: ‘You should smile more’. So, if I’m trying to get the ttention of a certain young lady, I’ll turn on the smile.”
However, as always in the scandalous scenes of showbiz, trouble is a-brewing. The People offices have reported that around a dozen disillusioned Ryan Gosling fans protest Bradley Cooper’s coronation as the Sexiest Man Alive. Battles on the street and petitions online have popped up looking to unseat Cooper from the prime position. Most have put the dismay down to the fact that poor Bradders hasn’t done too much this year – besides star in a much-maligned sequel to a movie that was popular two years ago and breaking up with Renee Zellweger – which of course made MANY adoring lady fans very happy…
