Michael B. Jordan is PEOPLE's 'Sexiest Man Alive' 2020

Michael B. Jordan has played a Marvel supervillain, a light heavyweight champion boxer, and an altruistic lawyer (among many, many other characters in his career), but now he's adding a title he's never had before to his resume: PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive.

The actor and producer has been selected as People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" 2020.

Jordan was revealed as this year's honoree on Tuesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" This year marks the 35th Anniversary of the magazine's annual ode to male beefcakes.

Speaking to People about receiving the honor, Jordan joked that there are women in his family who "are definitely proud of this one."

"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 told the magazine. "This is one that they're definitely going to have a special place for."

Last year's honoree was singer John Legend and Idris Elba held the title the year prior.
