"Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, 'Yeah, you are kind of sexy today". "It was a nice surprise - an ego boost for sure", Idris told People in his cover story.

From his breakthrough role in America as drug kingpin Russell "Stringer" Bell on HBO's hit series The Wire to his commanding portrayal of Norse God and Asgardian gatekeeper Heimdall in Marvel's Thor franchise, the British heartthrob, 46, has become one of Hollywood's biggest - and sexiest - stars.

And for some fans, they were just glad last year's victor, Blake Shelton, didn't take home the title again.

Only two other non-white men - African-American star Denzel Washington in 1996 and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, whose mother is Samoan and whose father is black Canadian, in 2016 - have won the title since People started the feature in 1985.
