Actor and producer Michael B. Jordan was named the Sexiest Man in the World for 2020. The news was received with enthusiastic applause by Jordan's legions of supporters. But there is one person who doesn't seem to be buying the hype. Dwayne Johnson, who held the same title in 2016, congratulated Jordan on his win on Instagram, but added that he wasn't ready to take the crown just yet.
"It's fun to talk about" living to the fullest every day "in the @ people SEXIEST MAN ALIVE edition. Congratulations to my brother @michaelbjordan on the new sexy crown [Faust emoji]. I won't admit anything [crown -Emoji]. "
When Michael B. Jordan The actor first broke into the Hollywood scene with a roster of critically acclaimed appearances in indie films and has been rated by critics as one to watch out for. But it was his starring role as Adonis Creed in the Rocky spinoff movie Creed and its sequel that made Jordan an A-list leader.
The muscles the actor had built for Creed had already caught the imagination of his female fans. But as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther, Jordan drove the audience into a frenzy. His steely muscles caught attention in every scene, and even made a fan watching the movie bite into its holder so hard that it broke it. When Jordan heard about the incident, he reached out to her online and offered to pay for a new henchman.
The attractiveness of Jordan grows by leaps and bounds every year. The "Sexiest Man Alive" tag is the latest evidence of this trend. For his part, in an interview with People, the actor kindly accepted the award and admitted that he was now part of a pretty cool group.
"What went through my mind when I found out? It was a cool feeling. Obviously, other people have made so many comments and jokes about it … whenever you announce who the guy is, everyone has their comments and they have Things they want to say, they always joke about me like, "Mike, it's the only thing you probably won't get." And it was just like, "Yeah, whatever," me brushed it off somehow. So it felt good. It's cool. It's a good club to be a part of. "
While the crown of the "Sexiest Man Alive" may have passed from Dwayne Johnson to Jordan, where JOhn Legend actually holds the title in 2019, the former is not too bitter. Johnson has long been Hollywood's biggest action star and is now preparing to join the DCEU in the role of the anti-hero Black Adam.
By the way, Jordan himself came to DCEU as a producer for the upcoming Static Shock film and has also expressed an interest in playing the role of Superman at some point. Who knows, we might one day see Johnson and Jordan challenge it in their overpowering avatars on the big screen to pinpoint DC's sexiest superhero.
