We may not have liked him much as the baddie Erik Killmonger in Black Panther (purely because he was the bad guy), but Michael B. Jordan is one loved man. So much so that he has made it to the top of People Magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive' list. This makes him the third African-American actor to have topped the list in a row after singer John Legend made it to the list in 2019 and Idris Elba clenched the spot in 2018.

Talking to People about his win, Micheal revealed, "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." He continued, "I think there’s a time and a place for everything. 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." Chadwick Boseman Death: Black Panther Costar Michael B Jordan Pays an Emotional Tribute, Says 'I Wish We Had More Time'.
