Ladies, if you’re looking to lock down Mr. Elba.. you just might be out of luck!
That’s right, in a recent interview with Essence Magazine, Idris Elba opened up about his love life… and surprisingly when it comes to the idea of marriage, the British actor is quite closed off. Yes, despite walking down the aisle twice before, Idris tells the mag that he doesn’t plan on making third trip. When asked if he’d ever remarry again the ‘Star Trek Beyond’ star says:
“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so,[…] Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
Awww… well we guess marriage isn’t for everybody..
Now, although he won’t be tying the knot anytime soon, the 44 year old father of two has had his fair share of illicit love affairs including his first wife/make up artist, Hanne Norgaard and a tumultuous tryst with R&B singer/ “Love And Hip Hop” star K. Michelle. It’s no wonder why the “Obsessed” actor may be a little shaken at the thought of a legally binding long-term commitment. But, we must admit, it’s pretty disheartening to hear someone completely abandon such a beautiful and meaningful symbol of love, commitment, and an additional tax deduction.
Luckily for Idris, we have some photos from his cover shoot to distract us from his strong aversion to “I do”….
You know what, all of sudden marriage seems extremely overrated…
Catch Idris Elba on the August cover of Essence where he shares more about his personal life and even talks his directorial debut for his upcoming film, “Yardie,” – – a story of “a small-time pastor who comes from Jamaica and ends up embroiled in [avenging his brother’s death],” according to the Magazine’s in-depth interview.
