Fans from home took turns asking him a series of "yes" or "no" questions, like "Are you in film?" "Do you have a celebrity sibling or parent?" and "Have you ever been in a romantic relationship with Taylor Swift?" One viewer ended the guessing game by correctly guessing that it was in fact Michael B. Jordan! With that, the Creed actor took off his suit to show the world who he was!
An Interview With People Magazine
Not only can Michael B. Jordan stun fans with his good looks and robust form, he also strives to do good where he can, on top of his film jobs. His recent roles include playing Apollo Creed's son in the 2015 movie Creed, playing a villain, Erik Killmonger, in 2018's Black Panther, and the role of Guy Montag in the dystopian film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.
His production company, Outlier Society Productions, was the first to use inclusion riders to ensure diverse casts in future projects. He tells People and fans that both big and small moments of positivity can work to make a change:
"I think there's a time and a place for everything. I've been picking my moments to make the most impact. We can all take action—big or small—to help create the change we want to see."
Support From His Family
Jordan grew up in Newark, New Jersey with a brother and a sister and accredits his parents' sacrifice for the family with his current success:
"My mom and dad sacrificed so much to provide for my sister, brother and me. I'm just grateful. Honestly it's like they all have had such an impact on me and who I am and how I approach each day. Without that, a lot of things about me just wouldn't be the same. So it all comes back to that foundation. I'm really thankful for that."
Well, ladies, the good news is Michael B. Jordan is single...but that might not be for long!
