Idris Elba Voted People's Sexiest Man Alive

It's official. Golden Globe winner Idris Elba has been voted as People's Sexiest Man Alive. Having played epic heroes in movies like The Dark Tower and Thor, villains in movies like Beasts of No Nation and The Jungle Book, and even being a top contender for Daniel Craig's replacement as James Bond in the 007 series, Elba has taken on mainstream fame - not only for his talent in front of the camera, but for his looks as well.

Starting his career in the '90s on television, he started garnering attention after he was cast in HBO's The Wire as "Stringer" Bell. And, though he would later take on roles in movies like 28 Weeks Later and The Losers, he officially broke out in both his lead role in the BBC series Luther and his supporting role as Heimdall in Kenneth Branagh's Thor. This ultimately paved the way to standout roles with other acclaimed directors like Ridley Scott in Prometheus and Guillermo del Toro in Pacific Rim before Elba was officially recognized as an A-list star. Now, following his long line of roles that are as celebrated as they are complex - as well as his first official directing gig on the adaptation of Victor Headley's Yardie - Idris Elba has been officially named People's Sexiest Man Alive.

 

Elba spoke with People about his new title, pleasantly surprised by the results, which follows last year's Blake Shelton, 2016's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and 2015's David Beckham (incidentally, Chris Hemsworth, who starred opposite Elba in the three Thor movies was voted as Sexiest Man Alive in 2014). Elba joked about looking in the mirror, checking himself out, and saying, "'‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today,'" but added, "To be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.”

Over the past year, Elba has been at the center of one of Hollywood's most charged topics. With Daniel Craig reportedly passing the James Bond torch after the next entry in the 007 franchise, Elba has been considered an unofficial top contender. However, even though 007 producer Barbara Broccoli has shown interest in casting him in the role, Elba himself has confirmed that he will not star as the next James Bond.

While the honor of Sexiest Man Alive may seem like a solely superficial accolade, it no doubt confirms the fact that its recipient is officially a household name. So, after his tireless ascent towards leading man status, it doesn't hurt to have some mainstream validation for a career that has yet to show signs of slowing down in the slightest. Future roles have him working with directors David Leitch, Academy Award winner Tom Hooper, and George Miller in Hobbs and Shaw, Cats, and Three Thousand Years of Longing, respectively.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
