Acting is like therapy: Idris Elba
Actor Idris Elba says his “life falls to s**t” when he is not acting. His comment comes just a month after he split from long-time girlfriend Naiyana Garth.
The 43-year-old actor and Garth, who have 23-month-old son Winston together, went separate ways after two-and-a-half years of dating, and the Luther star says shooting films or TV shows is like his “therapy”. “Therapy is a good way to cleanse my... When I’m not acting is when my life falls to s**t. It’s really interesting. I’m going through this b******s now ‘cos I’m not on a film set. Had I been on a set I wouldn’t even have noticed. Probably,” he said.
The Wire actor also shared that women of varying ages find him attractive, but says he first realised he was eye-catching when he was all of 14. “I sound a t**t saying that,” the star added to Esquire magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Supermodel Naomi Campbel had said that she ‘loves’ the British actor, but is not romantically involved with him, when they were spotted partying.
