Idris Elba Is in a State of Undress on the Cover of Details


Many congratulations to your imaginary husband Idris Elba for landing the September cover of Details! And congratulations to Details‘ Adam Sachs for writing one of the most panty-dropping sentences ever committed to print:

Elba is wrapped in a pinstripe apron and sipping peppermint tea in the kitchen of an old warehouse.

SCHA-WIIIIIIIIING. The domestic life that so many of us have dreamt about is coming into fruition and sadly, we are not invited.

A big portion of Elba’s Details interview focuses on his love of cooking (the reason he’s in the warehouse kitchen, “wrapped in a pinstripe apron and sipping peppermint tea,” is because he’s contributing a recipe to Jamie Oliver’s upcoming cookbook):

“I like to cook,” he says. “I went to Trinity boys’ school, Canning Town, East London, the edge of the industrial world. But we had this home-economics class where you got tough lads like me and my mates learning how to cook, and I absolutely loved that.”

The other portion is devoted to photos of him shirtless:

Either way, it’s a very, very informative article.
