Eye Candy: Idris Elba is Looking All Types of Sexy on the Cover of 'GQ'

Actor Idris Elba is on the March 2013 cover of British GQ "The Cool Issue" and he is looking all types of sexy. Inside the issue, the 40-year-old British actor discusses his label as a sex symbol, female fans, James Bond  and playing South African icon Nelson Mandela in a biopic.

When asked about being seen as sexy, Elba replied, “The irony is I wake up every morning, look at myself in the mirror and think,’“Woah, I look like a piece of [expletive].’”

Elba says he is not a fan of women always wanting him.

“I’m not sure what it is they see, not to mention that, personally, I feel very awkward. There’s no way all those women would ever sleep with me and go, ‘I really liked him.’ Some of them would go, ‘He was really boring or he was a bit aggressive or, urgh, actor.’”

“But it’s a compliment and it’s a massive tool to use in sculpting a career, especially with what I do for a living because I work in the face business. So it’s a compliment and I use it accordingly,” Elba went on to say.

This issue is due on newsstands February 7th. Check out more pictures below:
