LOS ANGELES (AP) - British actor Idris Elba has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
The 6-foot-3 Elba star of the television series "The Wire" and "Luther," was revealed as this year's winner Monday on the "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." He tells the magazine in an issue out Friday that the honor came as a surprise, giving him an ego boost.

The 46-year-old actor proposed to model Sabrina Dhowre in February. Last year's winner was country music superstar Blake Shelton.
Other recent winners include Dwayne Johnson, David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Adam Levine, and Channing Tatum.
