Ladies, the days of us lusting over Idris Elba’s handsome face on the big screen are coming to an abrupt halt…temporarily. In an interview with the Daily Mirror, the 40-year-old British native announced that he’s taking a hiatus from acting.

‘This year I’m not going to work as an actor so I can concentrate on music. I do it from the heart, not for the money.”

To date, he’s released three EPs (Big Man, Kings Among Kings & High Class Problems Vol 1). And in totally non-relevant news, Sean Diddy Combs, was a pissy little boy growing up. And when I say pissy little boy, y’all know exactly what I mean.

This week, he (and Mark Wahlberg) swung by Ellen Degeneres’ show to promote AQUAhydrate and opened up a bit about just how uncool he was as a youngster. He shared:

“I grew up as a Kool-Aid kid. I used to pour a half of pound of sugar into the Kool-Aid…and there is something about sugar that makes you wet the bed. So I went on this quest to stop wetting the bed and the first day I had a sleepover and I didn’t wet the bed it was like one of the greatest days of my life. It gave me the swagger that I have today.”

And in true Diddy form, the 41-year-old found a way to tie-in the fact that his new brand, will not cause kiddies to have accidents in bed. He joked:

“So to all you boys and girls out there: As Muhammad Ali used to tell you to brush your teeth, I’m telling you to drink water, OK?”

Gotta love ’em.
