IDRIS Elba was inspired to become an actor by Spider-Man.
The 39-year-old star — who recently won a Golden Globe award for his performance in TV series ‘Luther’ — claims he was first inspired to take up the career while he was watching the web-slinging superhero on the big screen.
He said: “When I was still a child. I was raised in Hackney (in East London) and there’s a beautiful cinema nearby called the Rio. They used to show kids’ matinees and I went with my friends one day when they were showing the TV version of ‘Spider-Man’.
|It was amazing; the entire audience were kids and no one was sitting in their seat, they were climbing all over the place. I remember thinking, ‘That’s what I want to do. I want to be an actor.”
Idris is currently enjoying the most successful period of his career and he has roles in upcoming movies ‘Prometheus’, ‘Thor 2′ and ‘Pacific Rim’.
And when he isn’t working, he enjoys nothing more than cooking with his 10-year-old daughter Isan and then settling down in front of the TV.
In an interview with Britain’s HELLO! magazine, he said: “I like to read, watch movies and cook. Cooking is a big one for me. I’m a single father so I spend a lot of time with my daughter, who is 10. She has been introducing me to a whole new world I would otherwise have known nothing about. Right now I’m watching a lot of the Disney Channel with her I love it!”

Selena Gomez to Dump Justin Bieber
Monday October 10, 2011
SELENA Gomez has been reading the riot act!
The teen superstar and her boyfriend Justin Bieber are reportedly on the verge of splitting — because Justin is being immature!
“Selena is growing increasingly frustrated with Justin,” reveals one source.
“Most of the time they are apart because of work commitments but then when they do get together it’s becoming increasingly obvious that it’s not working.
“Justin is still like a kid. All he wants to do is watch movies and play video games. Selena is very much a young woman. She wants to go out and have romantic dinners but that’s not happening.”
Justin was recently asked if he was in love with Selena.
“I wouldn’t be with somebody if I wasn’t in love,” he replied.

Jenny from the Block has some famous friends keeping her company. Although their idea of “the block” and ours aren’t exactly on the same scale, if you know what we mean. But celebrities, they’re normal people too. They like to watch movies and hang out. Case in point — Jennifer Lopez and Victoria Beckham are going to watch The Hangover Part II together. They probably have movie theatre in their homes, but they’ll still go out and grace the public with their presences.
Jennifer’s currently in France doing talk show rounds, as seen in the photograph on the left. We love the whole ‘Jenny from the 70′s’ look she’s pulling off with that Farrah Fawcett flick and the white coat-dress. She appeared on the Alan Carr: Chatty Man! show and revealed that Posh and her, “saw Hangover together so now it is a tradition. So when I get back to LA we will go see [The Hangover Part II]!” They have a plan to move around without getting recognized too, those minxes. Jen said they, “go dressed down in sweats and sneakers. We sneak in through the kitchens.” And pop goes our little bubble. The thought of Jennifer or Victoria in anything other than stilettos and couture? No … we can’t accept that.

Keira Knightley Obsessed With The Royals
Friday May 13, 2011
KEIRA Knightley is a “big royalist”.
The British actress enjoyed watching the recent nuptials of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge — and even bought a special commemorative mug to mark the occasion, though she was sad she couldn’t join in with many other festivities.
“I was drinking tea out of my Kate and William mug. I ran out and bought one when they got engaged. I’m a big royalist,” she said.
“I watched it. I thought she looked lovely, very lovely. London was pretty. Everyone was having street parties but I had to work that night so I didn’t have the chance to go to any but yes, it all looked very lovely.”
Tuning in to watch the royal wedding was a particularly rare event for the Last Night star — because she doesn’t own a television.
“I don’t own a TV. I have a projector and I can watch movies or documentaries. I listen to music or read books or see friends,” she admitted.
“I’m in a hotel right now and the first thing I did was turn the television on because it’s such an extraordinary thing to have a TV in the room.”
