Michael B. Jordan’s Work Ethic and Influence Pays Off with Hollywood Star

Michael B Jordan’s ascension from man to god was celebrated in a most fitting way when he was honored with a star on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame. Conveying his humbleness and gratefulness for this distinguished recognition, the celebrated US actor and director paid tribute to the Black community, emphasizing what the milestone symbolized for them.
Majors compared Jordan’s journey to the 12 labors of Hercules in heart-felt moment, saying he dealt with it “with a mythic effort and a god-like integrity”.

“At the end (of the Hercules myth) he goes 12 rounds and the gods come down and they take him to Mount Olympus, and he transforms from man to deity from, temporary to eternal,” he said.

“Today, brother, you go from man to god. You sit amongst Olympus.”

Jordan praised both Coogler and Majors in his own speech, as well as thanking his family and reflecting on his own professional journey.

“I’m extremely humbled and grateful to be here,” he said.

“It’s not lost on me on how special this moment is and what this represents to our community. So, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you.

“Growing up in Newark, New Jersey, the idea of receiving an honour like this was like a dream. But I’ve always been a dream chaser and never been afraid of hard work.”

Addressing Coogler, he continued: “To say I appreciate you, Ryan, would be an understatement. My gratitude to you for believing in me is never ending.”

“I want to say thank you to my brother, Jonathan Majors, for joining me on this crazy journey, supporting me here today, getting me all teary-eyed.

“It was a true honour to watch you and your genius every day from behind the camera, and in a way, you made it harder for me to hop in front of the camera and sock you in the face every once in a while.”

The professional bond between Jordan and director Ryan Coogler was born out of their collaboration in 2013’s Fruitvale Station and later fortified with multiple projects including the massive Marvel franchise, Black Panther. Not to mention, Coogler also helmed the two Creed films and Jordan made his directorial debut in the third installment. For this star ceremony, Coogler and Creed III’s Jonathan Majors provided remarks.
It’s not only the highly praised body of work that’s contributed to Jordan’s celebrity status; the 35-yearold has emerged as an industry leader through his commendable investments in creating positive social change in Hollywood through his own production company, Outlier Society, and various initiatives like the Outlier Society Fellowship and the #ChangeHollywood program. This determination and resolve for change even earned him a place on Time Magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential People in 2020 and was declared People’s Sexiest Man Alive of the same year.
Being inducted into the Motion Pictures category, Michael B Jordan’s star at 6201 Hollywood Boulevard is the 2,751st on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
