Man Crush Monday: Idris Elba

Idris Elba

Idris Elba has played complex characters throughout his career. He’s played a hardworking man and good father in Daddy’s Little Girl, a world leader and activist in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and a skilled thief in Taken. But his talents were stretched as Elba took a turn for the sexy worst in his latest film, No Good Deed. 

Opened this past Friday he played a killer in this suspense-thriller. Now we know we’re supposed to hate him due to his fictional character, but his looks are so appeasing we couldn’t help be fawn over him despite his horrendous actions. This week we’re celebrating his box office win with his sexiest looks.

Even he agreed this role was challenging for him because he’s the polar opposite of his killer character, “I don’t like the violence, as much… It’s difficult beating a woman [and] being in a fight with a woman. But, Taraji got some punches in once or twice.”
