On Monday's broadcast of "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon", Idris claimed his mother would be "very, very proud." .

While announcing the news, Elba encouraged Americans to go and vote on Tuesday. A year ago it was country singer Blake Shelton.

Elba is the 33rd celebrity selected for People's annual Sexiest Man Alive designation.

Showing off his sweet and smoldering looks to the delight of the studio audience, Idris Elba also caught his first glimpse at the cover, and was very pleased.

"I was very tall and skinny", Elba said.
