Idris Elba and Lena Dunham Provide a Stranger the Perfect Response to a Flirty Text

Over the weekend, over on The Graham Norton Show in Britain, Norton went to the audience in search of a flirty text, and found one in the phone of an adorable young Norwegian woman. It was, uh, not so much flirty as it was wildly presumptuous. Fortunately, Lena Dunham and Idris Elba — who were guests on the show — offered her some advice. Lena’s was practical, while Idris’ was bloody damn perfect.

Let’s just say that Idris is not modest, and that the guy who sent the dick-ish text is going to feel very small when he receives the text.

    OK, that was adorable, but I wish the lovely Olivia Coleman had joined in on the fun. We need more of her.

  • Yocean

    Dammit, now I like Lena Dunham.

  • emmalita

    I loved "you're adorable! You can do better!"

    That clip, plus the gifs of him dancing are why he is number one on the Pajiba 10.

    He is aware of the effect he has on women.

  • Sassy Pikachu

    Where can I watch the full episode? ... for science...

  • Mona

    You can find almost every ep of the Graham Norton show on youtube:

  • It will air on BBC America on January 25. It's the only talk show I record.

  • John G.

    Idris Elba and Lena Dunham are two names I never expected to find so close together in a sentence.

  • BlackRabbit

    It's like a winner in Celebrity Scrabble.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Was this the same episode where Elba explained how a booty call photo of himself shirtless had ended up on Twitter? He does not want for confidence, but having seen him, I can't say I blame him.

  • zeke_the_pig

    That's the one.
    I was watching it while making my way though a bottle of Scotch and found the whole thing to be pretty damn hilarious.
    Now, having rewatched it sober (enough), I basically agree with myself. Which is good.

  • Mrs. Julien

    You are notoriously difficult so that should feel like quite a victory.
