Last month, gasps were heard around the world when a paparazzi picture of Idris Elba on a movie set looking very, very well endowed made its way across media platforms.

Elba eventually took to Twitter to explain that it was a microphone wire adding that all the love had his ego going into "spaceship mode." Last night, he joked about the incident on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "I mean, I just don't want to scare the world," he said. "When I saw it on CNN, I was like, 'OK, this has to stop.'"

"It looks like God loves you very much," Kimmel joked before adding, "Why are you mic-ing that part of your body? Does it talk?"
