Man Crush Wednesday: A Shirtless and Sweaty Idris Elba

More like man crush everyday!

Idris Elba has been giving fans a glimpse of his fitness routine via Instagram this month, and all we can say is that boxing sure is doing his body good. The Bastille Day star shared a photo of himself after a particularly grueling workout on Sunday, while flexing his bicep and chiseled abs, with the caption: “Cutting weight, two days before first fight, mind in the right place. Fear NO guy.” He’s also posted a few videos while in the boxing ring — and it’s been reported that this isn’t in preparation for a new role.Idris Elba

The 43-year-old actor has been getting into fighting shape for a new docu-series where he will transform into a professional kickboxer.  According to Deadline:

“The actor and producer is buffing up for Idris Elba: Fighter, a limited series that will extend the Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee’s relationship with Discovery Networks International following their collaboration on racing program No Limits. The three-part hour-long factual will see Elba undertake the physically and mentally demanding task of training to become a professional kickboxer — ultimately competing against a seasoned brawler in a no-holds-barred bout.”

“It has been a lifelong ambition of mine to fight professionally,” said the Golden Globe and SAG Award winner. “Entering the ring to further test myself as a human being is a challenge I have been looking to take on for quite some time.”

Idris Elba’s weapon of…well, something destruction… Or not?

Is that photoshop? Or a trick of lighting? Or an un-smoothened fabric of his boxers? Or is that really him? The British-born actor, pictured above, was working on the set
