Idris Elba Has No Desire To Get Married Again

Actor Idris Elba expressed that he has no desire to ever walk down the aisle again!

In an interview with Essence Magazine, he said that marriage isn’t his “life calling.”

“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so…yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody,” he continued.

According to Us Weekly, Elba was first married to Hanne “Kim” Norgaard from 1999-2003. He then remarried in 2006 to Sonya Nicole Hamlin for less than a year.

He also told Essence that he continues to stay active with his two children. “I’m 44 years old with a two-and-a-half-year-old boy, I’m rolling around playing,” said Elba  “And then I’m at a Drake concert with my teenage daughter. Having a young child now keeps me young, without a doubt.”

Elba is set to star in six upcoming projects this year, including Thor: Ragnarok, and the fifth season of Luther.
