Idris Elba for VOGUE Magazine [Jan. 2014]

idrielb

 

Idris Elba strikes a pose for his feature in the January 2014 issue of VOGUE.

In this issue, the actor speaks on taking on the role of Nelson Mandela in ‎Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

 

Here are few of Elba’s Vogue highlights.
On becoming Nelson Mandela:
“I’ve been told I have presence. I’ve been told I’m charismatic. But I’m not Nelson Mandela. Everybody has a sense of who Mandela is – his nobleness, his white hair, his voice. Those were big shoes to fill. I felt like that I would be the challenge: to create Mr. Mandela’s presence on film for people who have never met him. I didn’t want to do an impression. You can tell quite a bit about someone by the way they write. He’s a quite methodical man. He was very tidy. Extremely tidy. I’m not like that. I land here. And I use my environment however I wish.”
On proving to everyone that he can be Mandela:
“I stood up and talked to these extras. I’m looking them in the eye, and I know what they’re thinking. ‘You’re not South African. You don’t look like Mandela. Show me something.'”
On his blooming career:
“It’s quite interesting for me when someone comes up to me and says, ‘Yo, man, I haven’t seen you working much. What’s going on? I’ll say, ‘Oh, I’ve done bits and pieces here and there.'”

In the September issue of the fashion-forward magazine the Hunger Games actress dishes on how she handles fame, and how she knew she was going to be famous.

Check out some of her Vogue snippets below!

On knowing she was going to be famous :
“Ever since I was really little, I’ve always had a very normal idea of what I wanted. I was going to be a mom and I was going to be a doctor and I was going to live in Kentucky. But I always knew that I was going to be famous. I honest to God don’t know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, ‘Am I going to be a local TV person? AM I going to be a motivational speaker?’ It wasn’t a vision. But as it’s kind of happening, you this buried understanding, of course.”

On the anxiety she has, as she grows more famous:
“I teeter on seeming ungrateful when I talk about this, but I’m kind of going through a meltdown about it lately. All of a sudden, the entire world feels entitled to know everything about my life. I am just not ok with it. It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it.”

On her demeanor when she was growing up:
“I was a weirdo. I wasn’t picked on or anything. And I wasn’t smarter than the other kids. That’s not why I didn’t fit in. I’ve just had this weird anxiety. I hated recess. I didn’t like field trips. Parties really stressed me out.”
