Idris Elba’s 16-Year-Old Daughter Had The MOST Awkward Reaction To Her Dad’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Title

She’s been given a title of her own, too—Miss Golden Globe 2019!

Published November 15, 2018

When you’re the daughter of PEOPLE’s "Sexiest Man Alive," you’re bound to get a lot of attention. Idris Elba’s daughter, Isan Elba, is all grown up and making a name for herself in this industry already.

After causing quite the commotion on Instagram with her Sweet 16 pics, Isan Elba is bouncing back from all the hate in the classiest way possible. Isan was just named the 2019 Golden Globe Ambassador (AKA Miss Golden Globe) and is advocating for mental health awareness with her new title. OK, sis!

PEOPLE reports that at a press event announcing her role as the Golden Globe Ambassador she was asked what she thought about her dad’s new title: “I wake up in the morning and it’s my dad. I was like, ‘This is not what I was expecting. This is not very fun,’” she joked.

“When I called him the day after, not even about it, he was like, ‘Do you have anything to say to me?’ And I said, ‘No, I don’t think so.’ Then he said, ‘I’m the Sexiest Man Alive.’ I was like, ‘Oh, yeah. That. That thing. Uh, okay, cool. You’re welcome,’” Isan explained.

Despite this awkwardness, Isan is very much a daddy’s girl at heart. Not only is she stepping out on red carpets arm-in-arm with her dad, she's jet setting around the world and even told Variety she's working on being a director like her dad!
