It goes without saying that Idris Elba has the power to make anyone swoon with his incredible smile, so good it’s almost painful accent, and muscles that, well, that goes without saying too. So it’s hard to think that Idris could get any better, at least, that’s what we thought.
Then, we heard him reading romantic fan fiction about himself and it was everything we never knew we needed.
Not only does he take it like an absolutely incredible sport, he plays along and even shoots the camera a set or two of bedroom eyes.
The fan fiction includes Idris as himself, him in his role in Thor, and Detective Luther – and it’s very…imaginative. Like the one below where the fan fiction has him and the reader stuck in a winter sort of paradise. We mean, we wouldn’t hate being stuck with him in a snowstorm.
‘One It’s been snowing for two hours, and he’s still not back. Finally, the door bursts open. I run to him and peel off his snow-packed jacket. Rubbing his sinewy shoulders, his skin warms under my touch. And then he kisses me, just like the night he returned from filming Thor.‘
Idris is a favorite of hers here, and we’ve been enjoying promo season for The Mountain Between Us. His new film with Kate Winslet hits theaters on October 6th.
