People Unites The Nation By Naming Idris Elba 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive

According to People magazine, the 46-year-old actor was dumbfounded after discovering the crown of the "Sexiest Man Alive" upon his head.

Revealed on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', Elba appeared via satellite link to talk about his newest accolade. "Really?'" the actor tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "I was like, 'Come on, no way". Really?' I looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. "Thank you so much People magazine for making me sexiest man in the world, I'm loving that", he said before bending his arm and flexing his bicep. "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure", Idris told People in his cover story.

The actor's recent credits include Thor: Ragnarok and Molly's Game. Add deejaying under the name DJ Big Driis, designing his own clothing line and kickboxing in Thailand and you've got a good understanding for the man Elba is.

The British actor will soon be off the market as he is planning his wedding to fiancée Sabrina Dhowre, 29, who famously accompanied him to the Royal Wedding back in May.

Golden Globe-winning Elba is the 33rd Hollywood star to be named the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive since the annual campaign started in 1985.

Idris was also a popular choice for the honor previous year, but it was given to Blake Shelton.

He described himself as a "super doting" dad to his 16-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son.

"I was very tall and skinny", said Elba, who is 6ft 3ins.

He's still not James Bond, but for now this honor will do. I got picked on a little bit. "Grew a moustache, had some muscles, bonkers". Since the announcement, social media users have been going gaga over Elba. "You might as well do it to your heart's content".

'I've been ugly my whole life, ' Shelton, 43, said in a statement past year.
