English actor, musician and DJ, Idris Elba has no desire to take another walk down the aisle. The 44-year-old actor who has been married twice, said that he feels marriage isn’t his “life’s calling” in an interview with Essence published on Tuesday, July 11.

“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so,” he said, “Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody.”

The Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom actor was previously married to Hanne “Kim” Norgaard from 1999 to 2003 (they share daughter Isan, 16) and Sonya Nicole Hamlin for less than a year in 2006.

The Luther star also opened up to the magazine about staying active with his two kids after welcoming son Winston with then-girlfriend Naiyana Garth in 2014.

“I’m 44 years old with a two-and-a-half-year-old boy, I’m rolling around playing,” said Elba, who is currently chronicling his Muay Thai training in an upcoming docuseries titled Idris Elba: Fighter. “And then I’m at a Drake concert with my teenage daughter. Having a young child now keeps me young, without a doubt.”
