Idris Elba probably didn't expect Pres. Barack Obama to talk about his sex appeal when he went to the White House last week for a screening of his awards season favorite drama Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
But that's exactly what the commander-in-chief did when recalling the first time the actor was at the White House for a state dinner.
"He told everyone in the screening room...'Idris Elba couldn't sit down because all the ladies, all the ladies were all over him. Give him a break today, ladies. Give him a break,'" Elba told me last night at the BAFTA LA Jaguar Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Elba added with a smile, "I was sitting in the room with a massive head."
