"Black Panther" star Michael B. Jordan has been named People's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2020. The outlet has been keeping a close watch on the 33-year-old single actor, who was featured in its first annual Ones to Watch portfolio in 2013. Fast forward to the present day and Jordan is still coming to grips with his latest title.

"It's a cool feeling," he told People in this week's cover story. "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."

Jordan's career spans nearly two decades and includes multiple film and TV appearances. His big break came in 2002, when he was cast in HBO's hit series "The Wire," according to IMDB. From there he went on to star in "Friday Night Lights" and "Parenthood."

In 2013, Jordan took on his first major leading film role in "Fruitvale Station." The stint paved the way for his success. Since then, Jordan has appeared in dozens of hit films including "Fantastic Four," "Creed," and notably as the villain Erik Killmonger in "Black Panther." Looking back at his career, Jordan credited his parents, Donna and Michael A., as well as his brother, Khalid, and sister, Jamila, for his success.

"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."

Jordan added that the women in his family were most proud of him winning the "Sexiest Man Alive" title.

"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," he said. "This is one that they're definitely going to have a special place for."
