    It was the bulge everybody was shocked by.

    Idris Elba recently pulled a Jon Hamm on the set of his upcoming movie when a paparazzi picture spotted his oversized crotch.

    And although the 41-year-old actor quickly clarified that his large front side was actually a mic wire, Elba was still shocked by the immediate reaction he got from fans and strangers alike.

    "It happened over night. It was huge," Elba told E! News while promoting his new movie, No Good Good, in theatres Sept. 12. "It was on the news. That's bizarre to me."

    He added, "Everyone is size obsessed."

    Shortly after the photo surfaced, Elba immediately made light of the situation.

    "Calvin Klein called my mobile, they want me in their next campaign," he Tweeted. "Foot long john's Coming Winter 2014. #egowentintospaceshipmodethough"

    Jokes aside, all the attention proved to be beneficial in one aspect of the star's life. His Twitter community drastically increased in a matter of days.

    "Probably, about 150,000 more people follow me," he told E! News. "I'm like, wow that's kind of interesting."

    Lucky for new and old fans, Elba says he will show some more skin in his new thriller, No Good Deed. We can't wait!
