Idris Elba just landed his first GQ cover and he can’t contain his excitement. In the march issue of the men’s the Luther actor dishes on his upcoming sci-fi movie Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, those James Bond rumors and portraying Nelson Mandela in a biopic.
As for his GQ cover, Idris says it’s about effing time!
“I mean, GQ! Come on man! Not to sound like a fan but to be on the front cover is a f*****g goal in the 90th minute, you know what I mean? It’s like having a bust left foot, a broken right foot, getting dragged out of the penalty box and still scoring. That’s how big that moment is for me.”
