Michael B. Jordan talks ‘hustling in Hollywood’ for the latest issue of GQ — along with a fun (and sexy) photo spread.
Check out a few excerpts from his interview:
On attention from the ladies: “I understand what females want and need, you know. I’m good at that. I don’t know if I’m the guy to give it to them right now. I’m emotionally unavailable. Until I find something that’s so undeniable that I can’t help myself. The females, they’ll always be there. Like honestly, bro, oh my God. Female-wise now? I ain’t got to do too much work. And it’s weird, because I’m the same guy. I haven’t f*cking changed, right? I haven’t done anything different…Okay maybe a blockbuster film.”
On taking a more assertive role in his career: “I told my team after I finished Chronicle that I only want to go out for roles that were written for white characters. Me playing the role will make it what it is.”
On the backlash he faced after ‘dating’ Kendall Jenner: “It’s the world we live in. They see white and black. I don’t. Kendall’s a friend of mine, you know. I don’t know her, like, that well, but I know her enough. People’s perspective on that is what it is. I don’t f*cking know. I don’t live my life to make other people happy. It’s so weird, though, right? A lot of black fans were feeling like ‘Oh, my god, he should have been with a black woman’ and that whole thing.”
