Model Chrissy Teigen apologised to her husband John Legend after actor Idris Elba responded to her throwback challenge with a picture of himself from 1995.
Legend was recently crowned the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by People magazine. The ‘All of Me’ singer embraced the title and tweeted saying he was “perplexed” by the new title. He also shared an old photo wearing a pair of oversized glasses and compared it with a current photo of Idris Elba, who held the title last year.
1995 John would be very perplexed to be following 2018 @IdrisElba as #SexiestManAlive. Hell, 2019 John is about as equally perplexed but thank you @People for finding me sexy. I’ll take it 🤓 pic.twitter.com/Gw1la5Ebv4

Teigen, who is quite enjoying her husband’s new title, replied to the tweet and challenged Elba to release a throwback picture saying, “Yeah but let’s see an @IdrisElba pic from 1995 (prob still very hot).”
