As part of the People cover feature, Elba revealed his first reaction to learning he'd been chosen for the magazine's honor. The Thor star told People he was surprised when he received the news, but said the honour has given him a boost of self-confidence. "I was like, 'Come on, no way. Really?" Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. "Thank you so much People magazine for making me sexiest man in the world, I'm loving that", he said before bending his arm and flexing his bicep. As the actor himself told People, "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure".

The 46-year-old year-old actor appeared live via satellite on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Monday where he was announced as this year's recipient by the weekly publication. "And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, okay?" He shortly afterwards tweeted a response, in which he got a little political.Who'd have thought it! "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers", he added.

Elba has a flair for taking on various accents depending on his role and despite having grown up in London, he can pull off an American accent in movies.

People, a weekly magazine in the USA, unveiled Elba in their cover this week. "I'm super doting, big hugs, kisses, lots of love-yous".

No matter how many projects the star - who is now working with former Sexiest Man Alive Dwayne Johnson on a Fast & Furious spinoff movie - has taken on, the dad of two says fatherhood is the biggest joy of his life. "You might as well do it to your heart's content". He was also named Essence's Sexiest Man of the year in 2013.
