Idris Elba has clarified that he does not have a 12-foot penisGetty

Idris Elba has admitted that secretly enjoys rumours that he has a "massive penis". The Luther star almost broke the internet in August 2014 after photos were released from the set of his film A Hundred Streets, which showed him with a large bulge in his trousers.

Although he took to Twitter to claim that it was nothing but a microphone wire he needed to hide during filming, this didn't stop the world speculating. Fast forward 12 months, and the 42-year-old star has confessed that he doesn't mind being objectified and found the incident "fun".

"For a minute, the rumour was great. I saw my Twitter account rise. I was like, what is this popularity? Oh, oh, I see, it's 'cause they think I have a massive penis," he told the new issue of Maxim magazine.

"But we all had fun with it. I certainly did."

But don't expect him to divulge the true size of his penis, because he was raised a gentlemen.

"What am I gonna say? I'm not gonna go out there and pretend that I have a 12-foot d**k. It's just not how I was raised, you know what I mean?"

Earlier in August, Elba denied the long-running rumour that he is in line to replace Daniel Craig when the James Bond actor steps down. The Wire star explained to Maxim: "If I were the Bond producers, and everyone was pointing me toward one actor, what's the surprise in that? Honestly, it's one of those things that if it should happen, it would be a self-fulfilling prophecy; it would be the will of a nation."
