“I am doing OK,” Elba joked to CNN. “You have to understand, it says the “Sexiest Man Alive.” As long as I am alive, I am still the sexiest right? So, there you go.”
Elba was an excellent sport about Legend being named this 12 months “Sexiest Man.”
“My G. Congratulations brother !!! You deserve it,” he tweeted the ultimate week. “DO NOT TELL @TheRock He still thinks he’s got the title, I didn’t have the heart to tell him when I took it.”
Legend has been humble, tweeting, “1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #SexiestManAlive. Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it.”
Legend’s partner Teigen joked that she needs to see a picture of Elba from 1995.
“Yeah but let’s see an @idriselba pic from 1995 (prob still very hot).”
And Elba outfitted the merchandise.
But let’s face it, the next sexist man is already in line — Snoop Dogg.
