Idris Elba's 'tragic' paternity revelation

Sep 20 2013, 3:44am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Idris Elba was devastated when he discovered his ex-girlfriend's child wasn't his.

The 'Luther' actor admits the moment a paternity test confirmed his US-based ex - whom he dated for several years - had been lying to him about fathering the son he had always longed for was the most "tragic" time of his life.

He told GQ magazine: "It wasn't immediately obvious - well, it was, because he didn't look anything like me. But it wasn't immediately obvious what had gone down. The celebration of having a son - from a man's perspective, it's massive.

"To be given that and then have it taken away so harshly was like taking a full-on punch in the face. Pow!"

The British hunk isn't embarrassed about admitted he was duped, but has now moved on and won't make the same mistake again.

Idris said: "You know, the truth is, like, even admitting it, I'll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened.

"But I wasn't knocked out. I stood right the f**k back up, and I ain't aiming to take another punch in the face ever again ... It happened to me. I moved on."

The 41-year-old star believes the heart-wrenching incident was a life lesson from karma because of his bad boy past.

Idris added: "I've not been an angel in my life, either - do you know what I'm saying? To a certain extent, what goes around comes around. But for me in the future, I'm about being comfortable. That's it.

"I was running with cats. I mean, I was DJing, but I was also pushing bags of weed; I was doing my work. I had to. I know that sounds corny, but this is the truth."

Charlie Hunnam cast as Guy Ritchie's King Arthur

Aug 27 2014 8:34pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

We’ve known for a while that Guy Ritchie has been trying to get his version of King Arthur going (though perhaps not as the six feature films originally intended).  Things got a bit more real last month when Idris Elba was cast as a “Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur.”  Now it appears as though they may have cast Arthur himself in the form of Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarc ...

Idris Elba Talks About His (Not) Dick Again on Jimmy Kimmel

Aug 27 2014 4:25pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

You know what the greatest thing about Idris Elba is? Feel free to all shout out ‘everything!’ in unison, but it’s actually that he doesn’t take himself too seriously and he doesn’t mind talking about his junk.I think if the entire internet saw a photo of me in which it looked like my penis was enormous, I’d respond pretty much like Jon Hamm did, by being like ‘SHUT UP ABOUT MY DICK ALREADY.’ Although if it were me, I might take a few more ...

Idris Elba was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his new thriller, No Good Deed. That’s the one where he terrorizes Taraji P. Henson.

Oh, Benedict. Your voice of velvet smoke, rippled with good Scotch and poshness. You are a Forever Dong for your voice alone.

It was announced yesterday that he will be voicing Shere Khan in the second scheduled adaptation of The Jungle Book. There’s ...
