Dear Gossips,

I love that Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre are featured on British Vogue’s “special bridal cover” for the July 2019 issue of the magazine. Back in April, when they were married in Marrakesh, British Vogue was the first out there with the exclusive and, at the time, right in the caption, they promised that more from Idris and Sabrina’s wedding would be shown on newsstands:            Read Full Intro

Those seem to be the culture’s two key words over the last 24 hours: “not today”. Those were Prince Harry’s unofficial words yesterday, as he was at the London Marathon for yet another surprise appearance. As it was with Anzac Day service last week, Harry’s attendance was not confirmed in advance since, of course, he and Meghan Markle are waiting on their baby. Full Story

As previously stated, I am SUPER ON BOARD with Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast/Furious spin-off focused on The Rock and Jason Statham. I am 100% in the tank for this movie, I don’t care if it’s good or bad because those are relative terms that do not apply when The Rock is creating a truck-chain to bring down a helicopter. Full Story

Here’s a question I’ve been asking on this site for months now: what the f-ck is this Cats movie? The Cats movie comes out just before Christmas. Like, pretty much at the same time as Star Wars: Episode IX. They’re counterprogramming Star Wars with Cats. OK.  Tom Hooper is directing. Full Story

DC Films is going ahead with a Suicide Squad sequel which will be written, and probably directed, by James Gunn. Though it is currently referred to as Suicide Squad 2, it sounds less like a sequel and more like a soft reboot, as has been the case with DC movies recently that just pretend like the Zack Snyder stuff didn’t happen. Full Story

Did you remember that Idris Elba made a comedy series for Netflix? I kinda forgot, then Lainey emailed me about the trailer for Turn Up Charlie and was like, Oh yeaaaaah, Idris Elba made a comedy series for Netflix. We’re living in Andy Warhol’s future, where everyone is famous for fifteen minutes—thanks social media!—and next up is the future where everyone has a Netflix series. Full Story

Seriously. That’s how Idris Elba and Taylor Swift were introduced at the Golden Globes last night – as co-stars of the upcoming Cats. Again and again, what even is this movie? At some point, in some scene, are Idris and Taylor going to start, like, purring at each other? He was actually asked about working with her and, specifically acting with her. Full Story

Back in July, when he was promoting Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Henry Cavill told GQ Australia that he was worried about the #MeToo movement making it harder for him to flirt and that he had concerns about flirting and then being called a rapist. Seriously. As I said at the time, no, dumdum Full Story

Raise your hand if you knew Idris Elba as DCI Luther before you knew him as Stringer Bell. I can’t be the only one. Elba was Stringer Bell first, but Luther was his breakout role, the thing that made him everyone’s favorite leading man and the once and future Bond. On January 1 he’s back with a fifth series of Luther, and this time Ruth Wilson is also returning as Alice Morgan. Full Story

Idris Elba is PEOPLE’s 2018 Sexiest Man Alive

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 6, 2018 15:40:19 November 6, 2018 15:40:19

Idris Elba has been a legitimate Sexiest Man Alive contender for years. In fact, last year he was my runner-up prediction. There are very few “arguments against” Idris Elba. The biggest and most consistent “argument against” Idris Elba is that he’s not American, as the majority of PEOPLE’s SMAs are American. Full Story
