“Black Panther” and “Creed” star Michael B. Jordan covers the December 2018/January 2019 issue of GQ magazine photographed by Awol Erizku.
On expanding Hollywood’s perceptions: “I remember when it used to be like, ‘He’s the next Will Smith.’ Now I’m the example of the next—they’re looking for the next me.”
Hollywood, Jordan says, is getting better for creators of color, “because we’re starting to realize our worth more and what we bring to the table.”
On his personal life and dating: “My career is awesome. It is going great. There’s other places in my life that I’m fucking lacking at. I’m very mature and advanced in a lot of areas of life. Dating may not be one of ’em,” he said. “My personal life is not. I don’t really know what dating is.”
