Michael B. Jordan: “I Needed Therapy After Black Panther Role”

Published: Sunday 2nd Dec 2018 by David


Michael B. Jordan‘s commitment to perfection has seen him find a friend in therapy following his performance in ‘Black Panther.’

Full story below…

Jordan portrayed the villain Killmonger, a ruthless killer fuelled by rage, and has now revealed that his union with the character impacted his mental health in ways he couldn’t have foreseen.


It was one of those things that I didn’t know what was going on. I never was in a character for that long of a period of time and was, I guess, that dark, that lonely, that painful. So coming out of it, I thought, ‘Oh yeah, business as usual. I can just go back home, I’ll cut my hair off, and everything will be back to normal’. I found myself kind of in the routine of being isolated and went out of my way to make sure I was by myself and didn’t say too much more than the usual. Once I got finished wrapping the movie, it took me some time to talk through how I was feeling and why I was feeling so sad and like a little bit depressed.

    Girl. Calm down. Your role was not that deep

    Actually, it was. And if you can’t see the true message within Black Panther — I don’t know what to tell you. The movie literally shows an American Black man (Killmonger) and Africans being pitted against each other. Black people against Black people. Look closer when you watch the movie.

      Girl you’re the type of black person who shouldn’t hve seen black panther. Black panther was made for comic book fanatics who’ve been waiting forever, not Instagram woke negroes who didn’t even know who black panther was before this movie smh. mi Michael was in a negative space because killmonger was a highly negative character. A warrior of death, a war vet, a super villain. He was so in character it was hard for him to get out. Not cause he was killin black folks in a fantasy comic book super hero make believe movie that doesn’t and ever exist- because it’s fantasy ????

    He needs to go back. He claims we have no history so he’s going to write his own stories? Why couldn’t he just say he wants to share his experiences with the world? He clearly did NO research whatsoever beyond his lines, as his haracter was well-versed and educated in Black history BEFORE slavery. Where did those stolen artifacts come from?

    That’s why he has a platform. That is the only reason his brown-skin self is allowed to be this successful. He needs to just come out with his White girlfriend already. He chose light-skinned actors for Raising Dion when they are dark-skinned in the comic.

    I would be happy for his success if he wasn’t turning out like Raven-Symone. Someone who you respect..but then says something that makes you look at them like they’re crazy.

    I definitely didn’t think his role was that draining mentally. I loved Kilmonger, but I don’t think it would put you in a headspace of let’s say… Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight…

    How very courageous of this male artist to be in tune enough and then actually seek counseling. These public displays inspire others to do so. T’Resay Drape-Jones

      I second that!

    ALL of this is a LIE and made up to appeal to Oscar voters. His PR team created this false narrative as most previous Oscar winners, especially male actors, attest to similar “emotional depths & depression & out of character experiences” in order to deliver a riveting performance. He’s lying!

    AWWW I feel bad for him he’s such a nice person.
