Temporary blog post - Getting Told To Fuck Off By Idris Elba

Bit of a long story and to be fair, he was a) pissed and b) trying to crack on to my friend and I hadn't spotted him when I came over to say hello to her. Conversation basically went:

Me: "So what are you in?" (meaning 'What are you doing at this LFF party?')

Idris: "I'm in lots of things. I'm in - "

Me: "No, no - I know who you are. Are you in anything at the LFF?"

Idris: "No. I was in this Raindance film" (which my friend worked on) "but they didn't want it for the LFF".

Me: (trying to change the subject as I hadn't seen his film) "What are you in next?"

Idris: "Well, I'm doing Luther and I'm in (pause) Ghost Rider 2, with Nic Cage."

His face and mine pretty much said the same thing, i.e. "Oh." He looked like he was embarrassed by it. I told him I'd liked the first one, he said it was shit. My face went all 'I don't know what to say' again.

Idris: "I know. Why do we do this to ourselves, you and me? (sarcastically) "Hey, Idris, wow! You're in a movie with Nic Cage! Nic Cage is a fucking legend, man!"

Me: "Hey, don't look at it like that. Nic Cage should be going 'Hey, wow! I'm in a movie with Stringer fucking Bell!"

Idris (face like thunder): "My name's Idris Elba. Fuck you. NO. Fuck you..."

And then he walked off. Brilliant.

Haha. Nicely done. If I ever meet him, I'm going to call him Luther.
