Elba, who was crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in November, has been vocal about his support for the movement and women in film.

While promoting his film Molly’s Game in 2017, Elba said the #MeToo movement was “quite poignant.”

“Of course, this is a film that was made a year ago, and probably prepped two or three years ago, but to come out when its coming out now is actually quite amazing when we’re seeing women stand up and have a liberation movement of speaking up against some of their atrocities that [have] happened,” he told Den of Geek.

That same year, he told the Press Association via The Irish News he found it “refreshing” to act in a movie with a female lead while referring to his Molly’s Game costar Jessica Chastain.

“It’s nice to have a character that is a strong, interesting character and also be a woman,” he said. “It’s definitely refreshing to have a lead character as a female lead and really complex and great.”
