The acclaimed actor, who has played everything from Nelson Mandela to the protector of the Bifröst, brought a very special young lady to the Academy Awards and was all too proud to show her off — his daughter. Isan Elba, Idris' 14-year-old, was all smiles and perfect poses in her beautiful blue, high-low ball gown and black flats.
