Idris Elba is revealing he once had a gun pulled on him while he attempted to stop a man threatening a woman. Speaking with The Daily Mail, Elba stated the incident happened outside of a club in America.
“I nearly lost my fucking life, after attempting to stop a man threatening his girlfriend outside a club,” Elba said. “A guy whaling on his missus, screaming in her face, ‘I’ll fucking kill you,’ and so on. I come ‘round and I go ‘Look how beautiful she is. Why would you talk to this beautiful princess like that?’”
The man would pull a gun and confront Elba, asking, “You talking about my girl?”
Elba said in the moment he thought “Don’t play negotiations like that… Consequences, man.”
