Michael B. Jordan is People's 'Sexiest Man Alive'

Thursday, 19 Nov, 2020

The much-hyped annual issue of PEOPLE magazine celebrating the attractive people has anointed Michael B. Jordan as its "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2020, making him the third-straight Black man to have the coveted, if not superficial, distinction bestowed upon him. Last year, John Legend won the award.

"My mom and dad sacrificed so much to provide for my sister, brother and me", he told the magazine.

The sexiest man alive grew up in Newark.

The actor takes over the title from John Legend, whose predecessor was Idris Elba.

The Creed actor who graces the cover of the latest issue of the magazine spoke about the title that was announced Tuesday, the 33-year-old said the title gave him "a cool feeling". "This is one that they're definitely going to have a special place for", he told the magazine.

In 10 years, Jordan hopes to direct and produce more than taking on acting roles. We can all take action.

"Just growing, whatever the next evolution of me is", said the actor, who will star as a former Navy SEAL-turned-CIA operative in Tom Clancy's "Without Remorse".

It also helps that I just learned that Michael B. Jordan's father is named Michael A. Jordan and I SCREAMED.

Jordan is best known for playing villain Erik Killmonger in Marvel's superhero blockbuster Black Panther, as well as for his lead role in boxing drama Creed. "So it all comes back to that foundation".

"I feel like I put it out into the universe and the universe said, 'Yes, that is correct".

So, it got me thinking - what do the people that REALLY matter, us New Englanders, think?
