IDRIS ELBA ROCKS OUT ON THE LATEST COVER OF BRITISH GQ.
Published:5 Feb, 2013
The March issue of British GQ will be hitting stands on the 7th of Feb and to whet our appetite, the GQ mag team has released the cover with choco sexy Idrissa on it and some spreads where the Ghanaian/Sierra Leonean actor gives us a sneak peek of his effortlessly urban/rock swag.
Geared up in a sailor’s hat, striped tee, biker’s jacket, jeans and boots and a vintage bike to complete the look, the ‘Luther’ star sheds some light on topics regarding his sex symbol status and being the next James Bond.
Here are the highlights
Responding to people finding him incredibly sexy
‘The irony is I wake up every morning, look at myself in the mirror and think, “Woah, I look like a piece of s***”,’ said the Hackney lad turned Hollywood superstar. ‘You watch yourself age and it’s hard to feel like a sex symbol.’
Responding to the female fans who ‘drool’ over him
‘I’m not sure what it is they see, not to mention that, personally, I feel very awkward. There’s no way all those women would ever sleep with me and go, “I really liked him”. Some of them would go, “He was really boring or he was a bit aggressive or, urgh, actor.” But it’s a compliment and it’s a massive tool to use in sculpting a career, especially with what I do for a living because I work in the face business. So it’s a compliment and I use it accordingly.’
