Jordan announced the cover in an awkward skit on Jimmy Kimmel last night, but it’s safe to say it was worth the wait. The hunky star appeared onstage disguised in a hazmat suit before forcing virtual callers to guess who was behind the mask. After a few missed attempts and narrowing clues, someone guessed Michael B. Jordan and jinkies, he unmasked himself.
“It’s a good club to be a part of,” says Jordan in the 35th annual issue. While it may seem Jordan has been keeping a low profile. He says, he’s been making impact behind-the-scenes. His production company Outlier Productions made history as the first company to incorporate an inclusion rider. He could also be seem marching alongside Black Lives Matter protestors during the George Floyd protests.
“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,” he told the glossy.
Jordan, whose next big role is as an operative in Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, opened up about eventually wanting to start a family. However, ladies, it’s going to be a while — he’s still dreaming about the perfect first date, which includes a good drive while listening to a bomb playlist and not being spotted by paparazzi. Good luck.
Nonetheless, the Creed actor is learning to trust the process while learning you can’t please everybody.
