Michael B. Jordan hasn’t stopped breaking barriers, and this time he sat down with GQ Magazine to discuss his latest. You may remember him as Wallace from the hit series The Wire or from Fruitvale Station. Jordan recently spoke about his new role in Creed, his career, upbringing, and of course his love life.
When asked about the ladies in life:
“Um, I try and be focused. I told myself at a young age, once I saw this kind of momentum, that I would sacrifice all my twenties to my work. I’m 28. I’ve got a year and a half.”
Hear that one ladies?! On a more serious note, when asked about his career he went on to say:
I want to part of that movement that blurs the lines between whites and blacks. I told my team after I finished Chronicle that I only want to go out for roles that were written for white characters. Me playing the role will make it what it is.
As Jordan’s career continues to only go up, his fame and privacy are starting to change. Since getting roles he’s noticed he is being treated differently and getting more attention:
I’m from North Jersey, bro. I love real people, bro. I come from nothing. I come from sleeping in the kitchen with my family with the oven open to keep us warm during the winter, ya know? When you come from that background, all this extra stuff is just…extra stuff, you know? If somebody’s not real with you, you can tell.”
Jordan just wants you guys to know who he is once you hear his name, and not consider him just the “other guy”. To check out the entire interview head here.
