People Magazine has just crowned British actor Idris Elba the Sexiest Man Alive in 2018. As if the actor hasn’t deserved that spot from the time he wooed us as Stringer Bell on American crime series The Wire, which ended in 2008.
But now that everyone’s on the same page, we found five reasons that confirm Mr Elba is indeed the world’s most attractive man. Although he’s officially off the market — he got engaged to model Sabrina Dhowre in February — we’re still allowed to dream about him!
1. HE SOUNDS SEXY IN ANY ACCENT
While he might not have quite pulled off some of the accents he’s tackled in his acting career, it doesn’t matter because his voice sounds super sexy anyway.
Whether he’s playing a notorious Baltimore drug kingpin in The Wire or Madiba in 2013’s Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Elba never loses the ability to make us swoon.
Of course, his British roles bring out that sexy voice best.
2. HE CAMPAIGNED FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS
Elba lent his voice to Stella McCartney’s Breast Cancer Awareness drive in October. Having lost his father to cancer, Elba joined the All is Love campaign to help remove the stigma around discussing the disease openly.
