Michael B. Jordan has been labeled as 2020’s Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine, a new report from Page Six announced today. Reportedly, Mr. Jordan was announced as the winner during Tuesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Jordan is perhaps most famous for his roles in Fruitvale Station, Black Panther, Creed, among others. The star said to the outlet that to be labeled as such was a “cool feeling,” before going on to add that people always said to him that being labeled the “Sexiest Man Alive” was probably not going to happen.
Some of the other stars to win the honor in recent years includes Dwayne Johnson, John Legend, Adam Levine, Idris Elba, David Beckham, and Channing Tatum, among others. According to the Black Panther alum, the women in his life are especially proud of him at the moment.
Jordan admitted that when his grandmother was still alive, she collected the issues, and her mom and his aunt read People Magazine a lot. He said this issue is obviously one of the big ones for which they’ll have a special place in their hearts.
As for what Jordan has been up to lately, the star has appeared in a number of big movies including Creed and Creed II, Fruitvale Station, Black Panther, among many others. Jordan has also been adamant at taking roles that other black men wouldn’t traditionally get.
Jordan started his own production company, Outlier Society Productions, which was one of the first organizations to adopt the diversity and inclusion rider which means they’ll seek out multi-racial and multi-gender actors.
Of course, Jordan’s massive success in the industry has made him a target of interested women as well, including Tiffany Haddish. Previously, Tiffany joked on The Breakfast Club how she wanted to date Michael because of how good looking he was.
Jordan has also been spotted hanging out with Jamie Foxx on occasion, including shortly after his breakup with Katie Holmes. Jamie had reportedly been acting as a mentor for Jordan.
