LOS ANGELES: After Courteney Cox, Michael B Jordan has become the latest celebrity to be honoured with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star.
Jordan’s star was unveiled on Wednesday, just two days before the release of his ‘Creed III’.
At Michael B Jordan’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, Jonathan Majors marked his presence, Variety informed. Majors paid a heartfelt tribute to Jordan at the ceremony.
He calls Jordan “Michael B Handsome” and said “Creed I” inspired him to get an Equinox membership. Several images and videos from the ceremony surfaced online. In one of the clips, Jordan is seen spinning around on his brand new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Jordan, one of the most respected actors in Hollywood, has been acting professionally since he was only 12 years old.
He has a substantial body of work in movies like Fantastic Four (2015), Creed (2015), Black Panther (2018), and is set to make his directorial debut with Creed III. He didn’t initially dream of becoming an actor. In 2015, Jordan told NJ.com that his mother set his career in motion when she decided to take him to his first commercial audition.
“It wasn’t something that I always wanted to do. But like a lot of kids, you know, I didn’t know what I wanted to be. And modelling, acting, it got me out of school early, got me a chance to go into the city, so I was all into that,” he told the publication.
Jordan also earned significant praise for his work in a number of critically acclaimed television series, including The Wire and Friday Night Lights. He was featured in Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Over the course of his career, the actor has also expressed his interest in becoming a producer. He started his own production company called Outlier Society and has been continuously working to promote inclusivity and increased representation in the world of contemporary cinema. (ANI)
