*Idris Elba met Lena Dunham of HBO’s “Girls” while they both were guests on UK’s “The Graham Norton Show” earlier this month, and wasted no time in trying to cash in on their introduction.
The “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” star tweeted afterward:”@lenadunham Very funny woman. Can I come do a scene on your show?”
Joking about a topless photograph of himself which he accidentally tweeted recently, he added: ”i promise, NO selfies…:)”
Lena didn’t say whether she would write in a part for him, but tweeted back: ”@idriselba You are a pure pleasure, an honor to share the couch with you #selfiesforever
”PS thank you for calling me a woman, it made me feel all tingly inside.
