On Wednesday, Michael B. Jordan was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He looked dapper in a cobalt blue suit and was surrounded by friends Jonathan Majors and Ryan Coogler, who gave heartfelt speeches about Jordan’s impressive career.
Coogler reminisced about their first meeting at a Starbucks near Universal Studios and praised Jordan’s hard work on the set of Fruitvale Station and Creed. He also spoke about their time working together on Black Panther and how their late friend Chadwick Boseman was probably looking down at them with a smile.
Majors talked about how much he respected Jordan and how he pushed through shooting with “god-like integrity.”
Jordan is the 2,751st person to receive a star on the Walk of Fame, and only the 165th Black artist to do so. He recently spoke about how he healed his broken heart after his split from Lori Harvey by focusing on his job. Jordan believes that what’s meant to be will be, and that he’s at a point in his career where everything is wide open.
The actor also discussed his transition into directing and how it helped him confront his inner demons and insecurities. Jordan wants to own and deserve the blessings he has received and wants to continue to grow and shed his old self.
Coogler ended his speech by hugging Jordan and expressing how proud he is of his longtime collaborator. Majors closed the event by expressing his admiration for Jordan and how much he loves him.
