Idris Elba has reached a career high and he couldn’t be more excited.

HipHollywood caught up with the UK born actor at the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom during the Toronto International Film Festival where he joked that he can now call it quits after playing the South African President.

“It is a massive achievement for me, it’s almost like a pinnacle,” said Elba. “I don’t think I want to act anymore after this I’ve done it now.”

Based on Mandela’s autobiography of the same name, the film chronicles his early life, education and 27 years in prison before becoming President and working to rebuild the country’s once segregated society.

The film also stars Naomie Harris, who plays Winnie Mandela, and told us while the T.D. Jakes film Winnie is also being released this month, this film is the only one the Mandela family is fully behind.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom is in theaters November 29.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
