Men’s Health unveils its April 2021 issue cover star, Michael B. Jordan. The 34-year-old actor graces the magazine’s pages with a story entitled “Strong, Calm, and in Control.” Jordan links up with Men’s Health in St. Barts as he appears before the lens of photographer Leonardo Volcy. A Coach brand ambassador, it’s no surprise that Jordan showcases several of the label’s latest styles. He also talks to Men’s Health about coming of age in public view.
“For all the success that I’ve had, there’s going to be negative reactions and opinions thrown at me,” says Jordan. “That just comes with it. When you’re younger, you’re just frustrated, but when you start to realize that this is what it is, you start to understand. I’m never going to make everybody happy.”
The American actor continues, “People are always going to have their opinions about me. People can make up something completely false that has no f**king substance or anything, and there’s going to be 100,000 people that are going to believe it, and that’s going to be their opinion of me. I can’t do anything about that, and I’ve just got to accept that and keep moving in my purpose.”
Discussing the people in his life, Jordan adds, “People that know me know my heart. But people that know me for my work know what I allow them to know. The fact that I’ve been so closed off about a lot of parts of my life was a personal choice. As I’ve gotten older and a little more mature and comfortable in my own skin, I’ve become less concerned about it.” Read more at MensHealth.com.
