Michael B. Jordan’s title as People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Ever’ in 2020 may have made fans pass out, but it also sparked a fair amount of jokes from the crowd. friends of the actor.
The “Without Remorse” star playfully told host Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Thursday that his close friends haven’t let him down since receiving the title.
“It’s a gift and a curse,” Jordan said. “People don’t tell you you instantly have a target on your back. All of my boys, in every group chat … constantly roast me.
Jordan said his friends teased him about his every move – joking, for example, that he “eats like the sexiest man in the world,” among other jokes.
But Jordan had predicted that the jokes were going to happen.
The actor told People after his title was announced last year that he was ready to receive the most heartbreak from his friends.
“The group chat is going to go crazy when this comes out. I mean, the jokes aren’t going to stop, ”he said at the time. “It’s going to be entertaining, trust me.”
Earlier this month, Jordan, who has generally not spoken publicly about his love life, told People his model girlfriend Lori Harvey had made him “extremely happy.”
“I’m still private, and I want to protect this, but I just felt like this was a time when I just wanted to post it and move on,” he said.
