‘Creed’ star Michael B. Jordan has knocked out the competition to be named PEOPLE magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive (2020).’
Look inside to see highlights from his feature:
“It’s a cool feeling,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.’ But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
As for who will be most excited for his new title, Jordan insists the women in his family “are definitely proud of this one.”
“When my grandmother was alive, it was something that she collected, and then my mom naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well. This is one that they’re definitely going to have a special place for.”
In its 35-year history, the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ title has only been awarded to four other men of color: John Legend (2019), Idris Elba (2018), Dwyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson (2016), and Denzel Washington (1996).
At 33-years-young, Jordan is the youngest man of color (and only under 40) to nab the honor.
