Sorry Not Sorry: Idris Elba Says He’s Never Getting Married Again
Idris Elba just broke the hearts of women everywhere-- he says he's never getting married again. Ever.
Elba, who's been married twice before, say tying the knot isn't a thing he wants to do again.
"Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don't think so," he told Essence. "Marriage is an institution of sorts, and I've done it. It's not for everybody. It's not my life's calling."
The 44-year old first jumped the broom in 1999 to Hanne "Kim" Norgaard, which lasted four years. His second marriage, to Sonya Nicole Hamline in 2006, only lasted one year.
As for his career- he remains focused. During the interview, Elba also said he was overseas training hard.
"I'm training for a professional fight," he revealed. "It felt right to come to Thailand, which is where May Thai began. I've been here for just over two weeks now training."
In addition, the London raised actor talked about his upcoming directorial debut for a film called Yardie.
"Yardie is quite a semi-famous bit of English literature about a small time pastor who comes from Jamaica and ends up embroiled in [avenging his brother's death]," he explained. "It's set in the late seventies, early eighties, a hotbed of Jamaican culture in London but then crack cocaine arrives."
Meanwhile, the Luther actor continues his impressive ascension, recently getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, plus, his movie The Dark Tower should do huge numbers. That film opens up on August 4.
Whether Elba stays true to his statement of not getting married obviously remains to be seen, but a lot of guys have said those same words, only to be in a tuxedo and walking down the aisle later on in life.
