Idris Elba may have achieved a lot on his life, but now he is also given the title of the Sexiest Man Alive. Though the Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire title might be his best achievement, but this recent title adds to his charm.

The British heartthrob has done several roles ranging from his breakthrough role in ‘The Wire’ to the Norse God portrayal and Heimdall in ‘Thor’.  Elba was totally shocked when he got the news as he thought that he didn’t deserve the title.

He said that being titled as the “sexiest man alive” surely was an ego boost and a nice feeling for him.

He is the 33rd Sexiest Man Alive on the PEOPLE’s list. Various other stars from the Hollywood have made to this list beginning from Mel Gibson in 1985 to Blake Shelton who won the title last year. Elba said that as he was an athlete through his school years, he was very skinny and tall. He was also picked on due to his name. But after he grew a mustache and got some muscles, he became the coolest kid.

Elba is very talented and when he is being the brightest star of Hollywood, he is busy a deejay in Ibiza, designing his clothing line or kickboxing in Thailand. Nowadays, he is planning his wedding to Sabrina Dhowre, his fiancee whom he proposed earlier in February. He said that the best thing that he has ever witnessed in his life is the birth of his children.

I’m super doting, big hugs, kisses, lots of love-yous. I’m sure my daughter’s like, ‘All right Dad, chill out.’ My son is still at that age where he loves a cuddle.
