So Much for That: Idris Elba Says Never Date a DJ or an Actor

January 17, 2012  |  

People magazine chatted with Idris Elba after his win at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night and came up with Five things to Know About Idris Elba, but there’s really only one thing most women want to know: Is he available?

From the sounds of things, Idris isn’t taken, given that he says he splits his time between Atlanta where his daughter and ex-wife (emphasis on ex) live, and his native London, but anybody thinking of taming this swexy Brit may have their hands full. He told the magazine:

“Never date a DJ or an actor. There are too many women around them.”

Hmm. So does this mean the fame could make things complicated or Dj Driis isn’t interested in resisting temptation? Perhaps he’s just channeling some of that bad boy charm he’s used to portraying in his characters like drug boss Stringer Bell on “The Wire,” which he said sparked “Stringer Mania:”

“Bad guys are attractive to women period, and most are not afraid to admit that. Guys respond to his stealth, his ruthlessness, and the way the man calculates every situation.”

While Idris may not be a total bad guy in real life, he does claim to be a “nightmare” to date. Somehow I think women could manage to get past that though, if he’s as much of a dream in the kitchen as he claims.

“I’m pretty decent. I like spices and I like experimenting with stuff. I love rice and vegetables but I love meat, spicing up meats.”

He likes to keep things spicy in more ways than one, he also told PEOPLE his favorite thing to wear is his birthday suit.

“It causes trouble walking down the street. But my birthday suit is my most comfortable,” he said. “I wear my birthday suit at home, in the bath or in the shower. Yeah, I’m pretty comfortable in my skin that way.”

Yeah, what was that part about being a nightmare to date again?

What do you think about Idris’s comment on never dating a DJ or an actor? Wise advise or would you take a chance?
