"Last year, the HFPA renamed the title to represent a more inclusive role that was not only gender-neutral but also spoke to the HFPA's commitment to philanthropy", said HFPA president Meher Tatna in a statement. There's this perceived stigma and I've seen friends struggle.

When asked about her reaction, she told the publication: 'Actually, I was on Instagram. People said, "Oh, we're announcing the Sexiest Man Alive", and I was like, "Oh yes, can't wait"'. "This is not very fun". And I said, "No, I don't think so". I was like, "Oh, yeah". That. That thing. Uh, okay, cool.

'I wake up in the morning and it's my dad, ' she continued.

Isan follows in the footsteps of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's daughter Simone, who was also 16 when she was given the role of Golden Globe Ambassador a year ago.

Lawmakers laughed incredulously at his replies, which were highlighted in Japanese media. Ministers in Japan nearly always get parliamentary questions in advance.

Isan - whose mother is make-up artist Kim Elba - also admitted she had no idea her parents were planning on putting her name forward for the role. Then he said, "I'm the Sexiest Man Alive". The role is typically filled by the son or daughter of a respected actor or actress, many of whom have gone on to front successful careers in show business like former Miss Golden Globe Melanie Griffith's daughter Dakota Johnson, Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern's daughter Laura Dern, Freddie Prinze's son Freddie Prinze Jr., and Rumer Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.

Stringer Bell, aka Idris Elba, is beginning to get his proper due on the West side of the Atlantic.

The Luther star is also father to four-year-old son Winston from his second marriage to Naiyana Garth - who he was married to for just four months in 2006.

Yep, it was a pretty big let down but we're guessing Sexiest Man Alive Idris isn't crying himself to sleep over it.
