The Black Panther actor, 33, was revealed as the victor during Jimmy Kimmel's USA chat show, entering the studio in a pandemic-appropriate yellow hazmat suit. In the Kimmel segment, Jordan appeared in a yellow PPE of some sort as fans tried to guess who this year's Sexiest Man Alive actually is.
Jordan, 33, has starred in movies including "Creed", "Just Mercy", "Black Panther" and "Fruitvale Station".
The famous PEOPLE magazine launched the voting to choose the most attractive man in the world in different categories, among the names of the celebrities that remained the most was that of Jungkook from BTS, Dan Levy, Noah Centineo, Harry Styles and Shawn Mendes.
Jordan played Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, in Marvel's "Fantastic Four", and then Adonis "Donnie" Creed, the son of boxer Apollo Creed, in the "Rocky" sequel "Creed" and his entry point at the Marvel cinematic Universe as "Erik Killmonger".
Jordan is People magazine's newest Sexiest Man Alive.
"When my grandmother was alive, it was something that she collected, and then my mum naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well".
As awards go, Sexiest Man Alive is a pretty good one to win.
The actor has been vocal in calling for greater diversity in Hollywood.
"I think the expectation now is a little unreasonable", said Jordan.
"I'm just grateful. Honestly, it's like they all have had such an impact on me and who I am and how I approach each day. Me?'.But it was a cool moment". "We can all take action-big or small-to help create the change we want to see". "I've appreciated the whole experience and I've been trying to have a lot of fun with it, but I'm so ready to relinquish this title". "So it all comes back to that foundation". "I'm really thankful for that".
