People magazine has named it’s Sexiest Man Alive and this year it’s Michael B. Jordan!
The 33-year-old Black Panther and Creed star takes the reigns from musician John Legend who appeared on the 2019 cover.
“It’s a cool feeling,” Michael tells the magazine.

But it’s not just his heart-melting smile and his warm eyes that lead to this honour.
According to People, he’s doing a lot to create change in the world from taking part in the Black Lives Matter movement to making his company, Outlier Society Productions mandate that filmmakers employ diverse cast and crew.
“You could have all the good intentions in the world, and you’ll still get controversy or some type of negativity thrown your way,” he tells People.
“Sometimes you’ve just got to trust the universe, you know? You’ve got to just believe in yourself and do what you feel is really right. I think that adds up.”
In a post on Instagram, Michael thanked the magazine for choosing him and also gave special mention to a family member who would be very proud:
“My grandma lookin down talkin bout ‘that’s my baby.'”
The Sexiest Man Alive issue comes out on Friday!
