He appeared relaxed and happy, giving no indication if he is still reeling from recent reports that he is soon to become a father.
A source told the Mirror that he and his makeup artist girlfriend Naiyana Garth are expecting a baby and that 'they had been keeping it quiet as it’s early in the pregnancy, but they’ve told family and friends and Naiyana is beginning to show’.
If the news is true, it makes for an interesting year for Idris whose role as Nelson Mandela will surely be a career landmark for him.
Directed by Justin Chadwick (Bleak House, The Other Boleyn Girl), the biopic is based on Nelson Mandela’s autobiography.

Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge And Prince William To Attend Mandela Royal UK Premiere

BY REBECCA MERRIMAN ON NOVEMBER 14, 2013

Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge And Prince William To Attend Mandela Royal UK Premiere

The Royals will make an appearance at the Idris Elba starring movie

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are set to join Idris Elba and Naomie Harris on the red carpet for the Royal and UK premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom next month in London, it has been confirmed.
According to The Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund and Pathé the royal couple will join the stars of the movie at the Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday 5th December for the star studded premiere of the film, based on the life of the legendary South African leader. On the night, the Duke and Duchess will not only meet stars from the movie but also director Justin Chadwick and Nelson Mandela's daughter Zindzi Mandelea.

It's not the first time the couple will walk a red carpet for a royal premiere. Last January Kate and Wills headed down to Lecister Square for the premiere of Steven Spielberg's War Horse.
That time the Duchess was so touched by the adaptation of the popular stage show, that she reportedly cried during the screening.
The acclaimed director told BBC Breakfast News following the premiere: "I was sitting next to her and all I know is at one point my wife, who was sitting to my right, right in front of my face she passed a Kleenex,"

"I saw the Kleenex go across my face, arrive and stop but I didn't want to intrude on her experience watching War Horse so I never glanced over,"
"According to my peripheral vision her eyes were dabbed," he added.

Idris Elba stars as Mandela in the movie with Naomie Harris as his wife Winnie, and to the star's relief it has been well received by the Mandela family. The Luther star previously admitted though he was particularly nervous during the world premiere in South Africa last month due to the sensitivity of the film's content.
“In South Africa, they were very silent and I wondered what that was about,” he told Variety magazine, “I thought maybe they didn’t like it, but they were just absorbing. You’ve got to remember, the whole freedom struggle in South Africa is about 25 years old. When we got there, the reaction was real.”

Elba also told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival that playing Mandela was a "massive challenge".
He revealed, “It was important we had both sides, the good and the bad.
"I didn't want to deface Mr Mandela in any way, but I didn't want to portray him in a way that wasn't honest... the challenges were massive, but we embraced them.
"He had a very difficult life, so we weren't expected to make an easy film."
Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom will hit UK cinemas on January 3, 2014.
