Not only is the Black Panther actor very talented but there is no doubt that he is also extremely attractive. That being said, when Michael B. Jordan graced the cover of Essence magazine in a shirtless picture, he got many heads turning.
However, the star wanted to give credit to the person who managed to make him look so good in the shot.
Jordan took to Instagram to share the cover and captioned it with a little half-joke: ‘S/O to the baby oil lady! She did her thang on this one.’
‘Honored to grace the cover of @essence for the 2nd time this year. Issue hits stands 5/25,’ he added.
The oil lady is not the only person the actor wanted to thank for his fit body as he also made sure to tag celebrity trainer Corey Calliet in his post.
As for the interview he gave for the publication, one question was about the rumors he never dates black women.
‘My dad and my mom both said, ‘If they only knew.’ If they only knew. And that is the thing that keeps me not tripping about it, you know what I mean?’ he explained, making it very clear that the speculations couldn’t be any further from the truth.
He went on to talk about dating as a celebrity.
‘It makes me hesitant about whoever I am seen with. I am finally starting to get to a place now where I do not care, but it bothered me for a minute,’ Michael said.
‘It made me more conscious of things I say, how I move, what could happen when I leave a club or a restaurant or the movies. If I leave any known place with anybody, there is going to be speculation.’
