ABSTRACT
IDRIS Elba is tipped for an Oscar for his role in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom but he says he's still the same person who lived out of a van and worked as a bouncer when he moved to New York a decade ago. The 40-year-old British actor, who rose to fame playing a Baltimore crack dealer in HBO's The Wire, was casually dismissive of the growing esteem he's being held in. He said: 'Me! The way I live my life, I'm two drinks from being in the tabloids every day. I'm no national treasure. I'm a dutty rude boy!'
