Who’s in the mood to swoon? Idris Elba has landed right where he belongs– on the cover of British GQ’s “The Cool Issue.” And he is the epitome of cool, maxing and relaxing a motorcycle with his name on the license plate. In the issue, Idris aims to quiet all the comparisons to the A-list black leading men before him, and says: “I’m not the NEXT anything. I’m the FIRST me!” Words to live by.
