He tells Britain's Now magazine, "I was going through a really tough time some years ago. I couldn't get an acting job and my marriage was in a horrible place, so I ended up homeless. I slept rough in my brown Chevrolet Astro van for eight weeks."

And Idris Elba recently kicked start his acting career by documenting troubles which are faced by youth of modern Britain. On his project, he shared, "I grew up around people who have gone through hardship and crime and I knew people who were criminals.
