Actor Michael B. Jordan, 33, has been crowned as 2020’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. This year’s winner was revealed Tuesday night on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” On the late-night talk show Jordan was given a mirror so he could look at himself. Jordan is the 35th celebrity to receive the honor since the annual campaign started in 1985, when Mel Gibson was given the title. Other past winners include John Legend, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and David Beckham. Jordan said the women in his family are “definitely proud of this one.”
Jordan made his mark in film as police shooting victim Oscar Grant in “Fruitvale Station” and boxer Adonis Creed in the “Rocky” sequels “Creed” and “Creed II.” He also starred as Erik Killmonger in the record-breaking “Black Panther.” He made performance on television in the series “The Wire” and “Friday Night Lights” and appeared on the soap opera All My Children. He started his own production company, Outlier Society Productions, which was among the first to embrace the inclusion rider, adopting the pledge to seek diverse casts and crews. Jordan is included in Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People of 2020.
