Brit actor Idris Elba named People's Sexiest Man Alive

Elba 46 is best known for his roles television shows The Wire and Luther

People magazine has named Idris Elba as 2018's Sexiest Man Alive, and the British actor says the honour has given him a boost of self-confidence. "Really?" the British actor told People when he found out he was their pick.

Idris was also a popular choice for the honor previous year, but it was given to Blake Shelton.

"It's an honor", he told Fallon via Skype. "My mom is going to be very, very proud".

So, how does the magazine pick its victor every year?

The actor took to Twitter to thank People magazine for naming him the sexiest man of 2018, while at the same time urging people to buy the magazine and to vote in the U.S. midterm elections.

'But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling.

Early past year the Palo Alto, Calif., company announced plans to produce up to 5,000 Model 3 sedans a week by the end of 2017. Elon Musk , has revealed the company's plans of expanding its overall market beyond North America, Europe, and China.

Here are five ways Elba meets the criteria. The "oh, he would be so good in this movie!" or "he should be the next James Bond".

He described himself as a "super doting" dad to his 16-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son.

"I was very tall and skinny", Elba said. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay?" I got picked on a little bit, ' he continued to the publication. 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".

'I've been ugly my whole life, ' Shelton, 43, said in a statement past year.

Elba, who was revealed as the victor on Monday's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, follows in the equally sexy footsteps of previous winners including David Beckham, Mel Gibson and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. 'I think everyone should adopt the philosophy that tomorrow is not promised so just go for it today, man.

But if Idris lands the role, he won't be the first 007 actor to take People's accolade, with Pierce Brosnan being named Sexiest Man for 2001.
