Idris Elba versus Chiwetel Ejiofor at LA BAFTA event: who would you rather?


I was super-excited yesterday morning because I realized that I was waking up to new Benedict Cumberbatch photos from his appearance at the LA BAFTA Britannia event. I covered the Cumberphotos here – so much Batch, such cheekbones. Now that I’ve had a chance to catch my breath an look at the other photos… well, there were other hot men there too. So this post is for them (although I did manage to sneak in one more Cumberphoto, just because HAHAHA you love me).

So I’m including photos of your man Idris Elba, who was there to pick up a humanitarian award for his years of work with The Prince’s Trust, the organization founded by Prince Charles to give loans, scholarships and grants to young people for their education or the beginning of their careers. Idris received a grant from The Prince’s Trust when he was a young man which allowed him to take acting classes, and he’s been an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust for many years (incidentally, Benedict Cumberbatch is ALSO an ambassador). Also: the UK papers are now confirming that Idris is expecting a child with his undercover girlfriend Naiyana Garth. Apparently, they are “so in love” and it’s still early in the pregnancy. Let’s hope that this kid is actually Elba’s.

I’m also including photos of George Clooney (he picked up the Kubrick Award), Dominic Cooper (I’m not into him but I know some of you are), Chiwetel Ejiofor (who is looking so dashing and hot in that suit, plus the glasses) and my forever dong Ralph Fiennes (I wish he would grow out his hair, damn it).

    I’m into Dominic Cooper but I don’t think he looks good here.

    And the answer to that question would be Elba. Until he started talking about himself in the third person, at which point I’d say “Eve needs to make an urgent phone call to Mr. Ejiofor right now”.

    Cumby, then Cloomey (maybe AND Clooney) then Ejiofor. Idris is off my list, forever.

      Chiwetel first for me so that will be a good rotation for us. I am taking Fiennes next. Clooney definitely, always. I could swing Cooper if I get a good night’s sleep the night before.

      I won’t put Cumby on my list. I have seen what you do to him, that won’t do me any good so I will stick with what I have.

      Alas, Idris is not even close to consideration for me ever again either.

    Cumberbatch is just not attractive. I find the guy really creepy.

    Chiwetel for mornings, Elba for noons and Cumberbatch to read me bedtime stories!

  5. Abby says:

    Cumby will be my first choice forever but I think Chiwetel looks dashing here….like damn son.

    His kind words for Cumby at the awards were so touching….like ugh I wanted to kiss him right there lol.

    Elba doesn’t do anything for me…never has and probably never will….though I do like him as a person. His speech was really lovely and genuine.

    Clooney looks great as well.

  6. Sarah says:

    George looks a bit rough. Or wasted.

  7. LadySlippers says:

    Oh so many cute boys. Hmmmm… Benedict and Chiwetel for sure; Dominic, George, and Ralph maybe… And Idris is also a maybe.

  8. Han says:

    Chiwetel. He looks great and he is waay smarter than Idris. Idris is sexy in movies but sounds dumb when he opens his mouth.

  9. i says:

    Why choose? They’re both so scrumptious. Seriously, Idris and chiwetel are extraordinarily handsome and talented. Regarding the earlier comment about idris and his disinterest in protection: ladies, just bring the condom, learn how to put it on creatively/seductively and ride- no need to care whether he wants to wear it or not. We’re in control when we’re in the driver’s seat.

    Who would I rather? Can’t I have both?

    (Qualifying statement: if Idris starts talking about himself in the third person, I’m kicking him out.)

  11. Thiajoka says:

    Idris. Always. And forever.

  12. sara says:

    Thank you for the pic of my man Ralph. You all can have the other men, I’ll just keep my” Fiennes” guy!

  13. Jay says:

    Idris, no contest. That man is sex on legs.
