Happy Birthday Idris Elba! Picture Courtesy: Instagram

You know him famously as Heimdall in Marvel's Thor franchise with hazel eyes. You also know him as the shooter in Stephen King's The Dark Tower which also starred Matthew McConaughey. But you know him the best as the voice of Sher Khan in Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book that released in 2016. Anyway, the phenomenal British actor turns 46 today and he has aged quite well if you ask us.

But while he has acquired the 'good actor' status and brilliant entertainer stature, there's a lot more to him that many aren't aware of... yet. Here's us celebrating Idris Elba for all the best things that he is!

He's a dishy magazine over star -

You know it too. The British actor is quite a hunk on a magazine cover as he is in person. These covers are proof of the same! Over the years, Idris has posed for several magazine covers and boy he only turns as fine as an old wine. You can actually look at all the covers below and get an idea of why we're drooling all over the actor's Instagram.

He is a part-time DJ - 

Idris Elba, with his rock hard pecks, baritone voice that would make you go weak in the knee and his winning acting chops, is also a DJ~ We doubt you knew this about the man you watches the Bifrost in Thor movies. He has performed in quite a long of clubs and concerts and damn, that's simply too cool to take!

A peek at what he's been creating

Here's another fact you don't know about this hot hunk of a man. He is a racer and frequents racing matches! Well, he's pretty open about his passion and he's literally living life #YOLO style. Here's a peek at some of his post-race picks.

He's a part-time stylist too - 

He has co-designed for Givenchy and the result is just too good to be true. If you don't believe us, you can check it out below and see how well he has styled his three-piece-suit and a layered ensemble.
