Idris Elba GMA Interview


Idris Elba appeared on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America” to promote his new movie The Dark Tower, and also spoke about his second career as a DJ and the possibility of getting married again. Watch the video below!

In addition to his acting work, Elba is a professional DJ, music/movie producer, and is currently directing his first feature film. When asked on “GMA” how he juggles all the various roles, the actor noted, “Life is for living, so I love being busy and doing things. I’m so fortunate.” Elba went on to explain he started deejaying when he was 14-years-old, adding, “It was my first job. I used to DJ at weddings.”

In the actor’s new movie, he plays a gunslinger determined to prevent a villain known as the Man in Black from destroying the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. As Gossip Cop reported, Elba’s co-star Matthew McConaughey appeared on Monday’s “GMA” to discuss his role as the film’s bad guy. “Matthew and I only did two or three days together but we really bonded,” Elba said. “In fact, on the press tour we really got to know each other a lot better… he’s a lovely guy.”

Elba further noted he brought his teenage daughter to the film’s premiere, saying “she loved the movie.” But despite his brooding role, “She thought I was funny. She never thinks I’m funny.” The actor also appears on the cover of this month’s issue of Essence magazine, in which he reveals he’ll never get married again. Elba has been married twice in the past, but his second marriage in 2006 only lasted six weeks. When asked on “GMA” if he stands by the policy, the actor offered, “Love is eternal. You never know what might happen.” He added, “I’ve been there, I’ve done that, but you can never say never. Watch the full interview below!
