Idris Elba Denies Being A Ladies Man
Idris Elba may be a sex symbol and all, but he doesn’t think so…
The “Mandela” star told USA Today: “My director likes to point out that Mandela was a ladies’ man. What the (expletive)? That’s why you hired me, because you think I’m a ladies’ man?” Elba says with a laugh. He denies sharing that characteristic with Mandela. “What I do see is the ambition. He’s got drive and I have a lot of drive, annoyingly. I never want to sit still. My agents are like, ‘Calm down.’ But why take six months off?”
Elba was recently linked to Naiyana Garth, but wants his private life to remain just that, private. “Recently my private life is creeping into my work life and that annoys the (expletive) out of me,” he says. “This is my work. My life is different,” he said.
Sorry Idris, you’re a celeb, it comes with the territory.
