Idris Elba Reveals Something He's Not Good at & You May Be Able to Relate!

Idris Elba is looking so sexy on the cover of Esquire‘s August 2017 issue, on newsstands July 11.

Here’s what the 44-year-old The Dark Tower actor had to share with the mag:

On his The Wire character Stringer Bell: “Where I grew up, gangsters had to be smart. That whole flashy thing—no, mate. It was suits and smiles. I said, ‘That’s how I’m going to make Stringer.’”

On how his father’s death affected him: “I got to a place where I wasn’t even living anymore. I was becoming a robot with my work. I have no fear of jumping out of burning cars or out of buildings on set, but in reality, I couldn’t run one hundred meters. I just felt out of touch with reality.”

On something he cannot do: “I’m not good at building furniture…I’ve tried it.”
