Finally, something America can agree on! After dividing much of the nation with the controversial crowning of Blake Shelton as the Sexiest Man Alive last year, it seems People learned its lesson and bestowed the honor on Idris Elba this year.
Twitter, which has long championed Elba for this important designation, issued the kind subtle, under-stated and articulate reaction one would expect. “YEAH PEOPLE, WE TOLD YOU THIS LAST YEAR,” users shrieked in tandem.
Elba’s reaction was sweet and enthusiastic too. He told the mag: “I was like, 'Come on, no way. Really?' Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. 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.”
