Idris Elba Doesn't Think He'll Ever Get Married Again

Idris Elba is looking so hot while shirtless for his Essence magazine August 2017 cover story.

Here’s what the 44-year-old actor had to share with the mag, on newsstands this Friday:

On his kids: “Because I’m 44 years old with a two-and-a-half-year-old boy, I’m rolling around playing and then I’m at a Drake concert with my teenage daughter. Having a young child now keeps me young, without a doubt…”

On if he will ever get remarried: “Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”

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.”

Idris Elba is Returning for 'Luther' Season Five on BBC

Idris Elba will be reprising his role as DCI John Luther for a fifth season of his hit BBC series Luther!

The 44-year-old actor will once again bring the London homicide detective to life in the four-part installment, Variety reports.

Luther creator Neil Cross has also signed on for the new season. Season four ended back in 2015.

Both Neil and Idris reportedly agreed that there was “unfinished business” that his character still needed to address.

“Because we love John and wonder what he’s up to,” Neil said. “In the end, we picked up the phone to some old friends and asked if they’d like to find out what happens next. It turns out, they would. So that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to find out what happens next.”

“I am thrilled that we have been able to bring it all together,” Idris added. “I look forward to putting the coat back on.”

Production is set to begin in early 2018 for BBC and BBC America.
