“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.”

The actor added:

“My mum is going to be very, very proud.”

Idris posted on Twitter to thank his fans for voting for him and also urging them to vote in the midterm elections. He said

Who’d have thought it! Thank you, people, & all the fans for naming me #SexiestManAlive.

“I’m honored & thankful. What’s even more important is your vote in the midterm elections. Your vote can make a difference!”

Idris who’s now 6 feet, 3 inches said he had an awkward time growing up. He said,

“I was very tall and skinny. And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay? I got picked on a little bit.

“But again, as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers.”
