Easy come easy go. And so musician John Legend has to give up the scepter of the hottest creampie on the planet after only one year as “Sexiest Man Alive”. His successor, chosen by “People” magazine, is 33, an actor and, like Bolle, is happy about the award.
Actor Michael B. Jordan has been voted “Sexiest Man Alive 2020” by People magazine. The award for the 33-year-old was on the show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” proclaimed. Jordan first appeared there in a yellow full body suit with a smiley mask. Finally he took off the disguise and let himself be celebrated.
It was a “cool feeling” to be named “Sexiest Man Alive”, the Hollywood star said in “People” magazine. He likes to be a member of this club. The women in his family would be “definitely proud” of the title, said Michael B. Jordan.
Better behind than in front of the camera
The actor, born in Santa Ana, California, began his career appearing on series such as “The Wire” and “Friday Night Lights”. He then celebrated success with films such as “Next Stop: Fruitvale Station”, “Creed” or the Marvel flick “Black Panther”.
Jordan hopes to direct and produce more in ten years than in front of the camera. Until then, he also wants to start a family, he explains. “I want to make a difference all over the world and not just through the roles I play.”
The “Sexiest Man Alive” speaks English
As “Sexiest Man Alive” Jordan follows in the footsteps of the musician John Legend, who received the award in 2019. The husband of model Chrissy Teigen, unlike Jordan, was a little quarreling with the honor. “Everyone is going to take me apart now to see if I really deserve the title,” he said. His wife, however, was jubilant. “My secret is out. I fulfilled my dream to sleep with the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ one day. An honor,” joked Teigen on social networks. Or she wrote: “The ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ just made me a ham sandwich.”
The previous winners of the award, which has been presented by “People” magazine since 1985, include Tom Cruise (1990), Matt Damon (2007) and Bradley Cooper (2011). Richard Gere (1993 and 1999), Brad Pitt (1995 and 2000), George Clooney (1997 and 2006) and Johnny Depp (2003 and 2009) won the title twice.
A German, on the other hand, has little hope of becoming the “Sexiest Man Alive” one day. So far, all award winners have come from English-speaking countries such as Canada (Keanu Reeves 1994, Ryan Reynolds 2010 and Dwayne Johnson 2016), Australia (Hugh Jackman 2008 and Chris Hemsworth 2014) and Great Britain (Sean Connery 1989, Jude Law 2004, David Beckham 2015 and Idris Elba 2018). Above all, however, Americans were given the honor.
