*Did anyone really need People Magazine to tell us that Michael B. Jordan is the “Sexiest Man Alive?”
“It’s a cool feeling,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story about the publication crowning him Tuesday night with its annual distinction. “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.’ But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
People noted, “From chiseling his body to carry on the boxing legacy of Apollo Creed as his son, Adonis, in 2015’s Creed to portraying Black Panther’s ruthless villain Erik Killmonger in 2018, Jordan, now 33, continues to make his mark in Hollywood — and the world.”
During an appearance Tuesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Jordan talked about his new title, getting made fun of by his friends, Jimmy predicting his win, being ahead of NBA legend Michael Jordan in the rankings, working with Denzel Washington on his new movie “A Journal for Jordan,” growing out his mustache during quarantine, shooting in Berlin for his other movie “Without Remorse,” and driving 203 mph on the Autobahn.
