At Thanksgiving, we're supposed to be thankful for things like family, friends, and good health, but we're also really thankful for Michael B. Jordan. Over the past few years, the 28-year-old actor has strengthened our vision, inspired dudes we know to go to the gym, and brought to the light which of our friends actually have good taste. Not only is he a great entertainer who chooses movies with stories that need to be told— he called Fruitvale Station a passion project—but the man is lose your self-control attractive, and my biggest mistake in life (yes, life) was not seeing his potential to be fine when he played Wallace on The Wire.
Seriously, how could we have known that this:
Would grow up to be this:
But, if we can forgive him for movies like That Awkward Moment and Fantastic Four, he can forgive us for sleeping on him. Though, we'll never forget that he called women "females" earlier this year in an interview with GQ.
So for now we'll just fawn over silent Michael B. Jordan.
In celebration of his new movie Creed (which will be released on Thanksgiving), his new body (he gained 24 pounds of muscle for the role of boxer Adonis Johnson Creed), and male objectification, we've rounded up the 21 times Michael B Jordan made us wish he was our (my) man. Scroll at your own risk.
