People’s Magazine has named Michael B. Jordan, an American actor, its ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for 2020.
The 33-year-old was revealed as this year’s honoree of the title on Tuesday during the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ show.
The ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ feature, which is determined with a procedure similar to that of Time’s ‘Person of the Year’, is regarded as a benchmark of male attractiveness and has typically included only famous people and celebrities.
Speaking during his reception of the honor, Jordan said that there are women in his family who are proud of him.
“When my grandmother was alive, it was something that she collected, and then my mom naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well. This is one that they’re definitely going to have a special place for,” the actor said.
