After John Legend last year, the young star of Creed and Black Panther, he is the fifth black man to secure the title of Sexiest Man Alive. Our early career interview.
Also this year, on time, the American magazine People dedicates the cover tosexiest man in the world (they say “living”, which suggests a strange alternative contest for zombies, to specify which sex symbols recognized as Marlon brando O Errol Flynn are not eligible). If last year the honor had fallen to the singer John Legend, fourth black man to win the award, this time the actor receives it Michael B. Jordan, who becomes the 35th character in the history of the award and the fifth black man in the category.
We are sure that this time there will be very little discussion about whether Jordan deserves this award or not, which we also want to read as a recognition of his sensitivity and intelligence as an interpreter, as well as his civic commitment in the name of equality and inclusion. The actor commented on it like this: “It’s a good feeling. You know, everyone was joking and saying,” Mike, that’s the one thing you probably won’t get. But it’s a nice club to be a part of “, adding that the women in his family (the actor is single), especially his mother and aunt, are proud of it, as, including his missing grandmother, have always read about this award for which they will have “a special place”.
We have had the opportunity to meet Michael B. Jordan at the beginning of his career, 7 years ago, when he was 26, and he had come to present his debut work (and of the director Ryan Coogler), Next stop: Fruitvale Station and was preparing to interpret Creed. On that occasion we were struck by his simplicity and his being down-to-earth, an image far removed from the inflated ego of certain actors.
With the films he starred in, including Black Panther e The right to object, confirmed his talents and we believe that he has not lost his simplicity. We propose it again, so that you can realize that Michael B. Jordan he is not only a handsome boy but also a smart man, which generally increases sex appeal. On this occasion it was already compared to Denzel Washington, who incidentally was by the way the first black man recognized by People as sexier in 1996. It seems to us that Jordan, at 33, is on the right path to join the maestro, who won his first Oscar when he was 36.
