Idris Elba, who's starring in  “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” (in theaters November 29th) walked the red carpet and received the Britannia Humanitarian Award at the ceremony.  He recently spoke to the HuffPost about screening the film for President Obama.

"...I felt very proud to play the character and be able to present it to Barack, who loves to watch films. And he has said to me in the past, “You’re one of my favorite actors.” Which is a great, great compliment.

Also, the fact that both of these men are so unique. Mr. Mandela was the first black president in South Africa and Obama being the first black president here, and somehow Idris Elba is connected between these two men. And that really does fill me with a lot of pride."

The actor, who recently revealed that he's suffers from asthma and experienced a recent attack during the film's premiere in South Africa, lists Ruth Wilson and fellow BAFTA attendee Naomie Harris as his favorite female co-stars.  "In terms of talent I’ve worked with very great actors. Ruth Wilson, who plays with me in “Luther” is amazing. Naomie Harris just completely blew my socks off. I’m very blessed in terms of working with great actors...."

Idris is also expecting his first child with girlfriend Naiyana Garth.
