The 33-year-old Jordan told People that the honor is a "cool feeling".

The magazine has crowned Michael B. Jordan its 2020 Sexiest Man Alive. Some celebrities have already weighed in with who they think should take the crown (including last year's victor, John Legend).

And after years of hard work, it was a well-earned win, which Michael credits in large part to his parents.

"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", Jordan said in his interview with the magazine. Of course, no one could ever replace the one and only T'Challa but there's no denying that Marvel Studios would eventually need some serious backup heading forward.

California-born Jordan had brief appearances in episodes of TV series Cosby and The Sopranos before bagging a small - but pivotal - role in The Wire, playing teenage drug dealer Wallace.

The actor who played the role of Erik Killmonger opposite the late Chadwick Boseman in "Black Panther" said that he learned about the honor while driving his vehicle with a family friend when his publicist and manager gave him a call.

The "Black Panther" actor said people used to joke that he'd never snag the title. He started his own production company, Outlier Society Productions, which was among the first to support what is known as the inclusion rider.

He has been vocal in calling for greater diversity in Hollywood.

"I think there's a time and a place for everything", he says.

As for that flawless date night, Jordan craves "the freedom to go wherever I wanted in public (and) not worry about paparazzi", with him adding that he's more interested in getting to know his partner than splashing out on lavish experiences. We can all take action. Of course, there's always a possibility of them resorting to giving Letitia Wright's Shuri a much larger role in the film but it'd also be nice to see Jordan get another shot in the franchise and get a redemption story for Erik Killmonger. "I'm going to throw that in the universe".
