Idris Elba Strips Down for 'Details' Magazine Cover!

Idris Elba Strips Down for 'Details' Magazine Cover!

Idris Elba shows off his hot body on the cover of Details magazine‘s September 2014 issue.

Here is what the 41-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On disappointing roles after playing Nelson Mandela: “You know, I’d just played this iconic human being, and the scripts I got afterward were sort of… disappointing… Look, I know that I work a lot, but I’d prefer to wait sometimes because I don’t want to just do rubbish films anymore or characters that anyone can play.”

On not always being recognized: “I’ve been that guy for a while, where people recognize me but they’re not sure why, I’d done a lot of popcorn films, but the reinvention came when I decided to do more of the character-driven stuff that won’t be seen by as many people. But it makes people start to realize, ‘Wait a second, this guy is that guy.’”

On non-stop working in his life: “I flew in yesterday from Ghana to do a one-day shoot here. Twenty-four hours ago, I was in Africa doing something very different, and 24 hours from now, I’ll be back home in London with my family in a completely different environment. And next week, I’m gonna be in front of a bunch of people playing music in Ibiza.”
