Imagine a man sculpted by Jesus, using the best ganache chocolate the world has ever seen. Now imagine that this piece of chocolate man is over 6 feet tall with teeth made of the finest pearls…and he has a British accent that could melt the panties off of Mother Theresa. Can you imagine that? Well, that’s Idris Elba.
“This is the very first time, and there was no one else in the world more badass than Idris,” Maxim editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear told Racked.
Damn right Kate! Idris Elba is undeniably sexy, and I’m glad the world knows it. The very first man to rock out on the Maxim cover by his lonesome, I think Idris deserves a round (of applause). I can’t wait to see the other pics!
