LOS ANGELES — Actor Michael B. Jordan has been crowned as 2020’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine.
Jordan, known for his critically acclaimed performances in “Fruitvale Station,” “Creed” and “Black Panther,” was revealed as this year’s winner Tuesday night on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
The actor appeared on the late-night talk show dressed in a yellow biohazard suit.
He said he learned about the honor during a call from his publicist while driving with a friend.
Jordan tells the magazine in an issue out Friday that the honor is a “cool feeling.”
“You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get,'” he said. “But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
Other recent winners include John Legend, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and David Beckham.
The 33-year-old Jordan said the women in his family are “definitely proud of this one.”
