I can't believe that it took Idris Alba this long to be voted sexy man of the year BUT it's happened!! Idris Elba was named “People” magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive! The magazine those newsstands this Friday!! He is sexy man number 33!
If you remember Idris had his breakthrough role in America as drug kingpin Russell “Stringer” Bell on HBO’s hit series The Wire! One of the greatest shows ever!
The magazine officially announced it on “The Tonight Show” last night. Edris is 46 and British! He tweeted out this, "Who'd have thought it! Thank you @people & all the fans for naming me #SexiestManAlive, I'm honoured & thankful."
