Now my question is ….Just ask the average woman and she would boot his confidence right over the moon!
Although Elba has starred in “The Wire” and “Luther” and one that I loved Tyler Perry’s “Daddy’s Girls”, He was surprised after being crowned this year’s winner! Imagine that! I thought he should have won YEARS AGO!
However, better late than never! Congrats to getting the nod!
But being that sexy…he is still very humble.
Elba, 46, also performs on the side under the deejay name DJ Big Driis and has his own clothing line. He is also planning a wedding with his fiancée Sabrina Dhowre.
The actor has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, and a 4-year-old son, Winston, from previous relationships.
Elba is the only child of African immigrants from East London.

“I was very tall and skinny,” recalled Elba, who stands at 6-foot-3. “And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, OK? 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.”
Past winners include Dwayne Johnson, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and last year’s honoree, country star Blake Shelton.
Elba will be featured in a special double issue that will hit newsstands Friday. The actor said he tries to live life without few regrets.
“Life isn’t about thinking about what you should have done,” he said. “I think everyone should adopt the philosophy that tomorrow is not promised so just go for it today. You might as well do it to your heart’s content.”
