Exclusive: Idris Elba Calling It Quits After Playing Mandela?



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.

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

Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?

Bible Of Love is available now!
