Bradley Cooper may have been placed on top of the list, but our man Big Driis, earned a spot on this year’s list of honorees for PEOPLE Magazine’s annual Sexiest Man Alive issue.  Aware of his relentless appeal, Idris told PEOPLE, “Women love when I smile… They’re always saying: ‘You should smile more’. So, if I’m trying to get the attention of a certain young lady, I’ll turn on the smile.”

However last Spring, Elba, presented a more humble & humorous impression, admitting he never considered himself to be a sex symbol to the UK media outlet, The Mirror. “When I wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, I look like s**t, I don’t know what everyone else is looking at.”


On being sensually labeled, ‘Big Sexy’ told Essence, “In general the word ‘sexy’ isn’t applied to Black men. That word has been thrown at me a few times so I have to say I own it. If it gives me and other Black men another definition, then great. I can live with that.”

His words may have come into fruition as mucho brothas joined Elba on PEOPLE’s hot list this year. Shemar Moore, Michael Ealy, Denzel Washington, Mehcad Brooks, Damon Wayans, Jr., Taye Diggs, Carmelo Anthony, and more, can be found on the magazine’s list of “125 Hot Guys We Love.”
