Now, he's People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2020.

“It's a cool feeling,” he told the magazine. “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.’ But it’s a good club to be a part of.”

MBJ says the women in his family “are definitely proud of this one.” “When my grandmother was alive, [People magazine] was something that she collected, and then my mom naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well,” he said. “This is one that they’re definitely going to have a special place for.”

He gave his grandmother a shout out on the ’Gram too. “My grandma lookin down talkin bout ’that’s my baby' 😂Thanks @People for naming me 2020’s #SexiestManAlive! Order a copy !” he wrote in a caption, alongside his cover.

In his interview Michael B. Jordan also spoke about how much his family helped him get to where he is today. “My mom and dad sacrificed so much to provide for my sister, brother, and me,” he said. “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. Without that, a lot of things about me just wouldn’t be the same. So it all comes back to that foundation. I’m really thankful for that.”

The reactions on Twitter to the new Sexiest Man Alive are overwhelming positive.

See? Not everything in 2020 is terrible. Congrats, MBJ!
