Michael B. Jordan Credits His Directorial Debut In ‘Creed III’ For Getting Him Through
In an exclusive interview with CBS Mornings, the actor discussed how preparing for his role in Creed III and his directorial debut with the film pushed him to shed his “old self.” And confront his “insecurities.”
Growing in the sense of shedding my old self — it’s one of the themes in the movie as well. Like owning and deserving — and feeling like you deserve the blessings that you have. And for myself, I put myself in the position where I had to sink or swim. I had to run toward my past, my inner demons, my insecurities, my fears and I try to put a mirror up to that in this movie.
Jordan also clarified a joke he recently made on Saturday Night Live, when he mentioned he joined the dating app Raya.
I was joking…
The host Gayle King mentioned that she knows “a lot of nice people.” And Jordan seemed to be open to the thought.
Send them my way…
He said while chuckling.
The Actor Shared How He Moved On Following His “Very Public” Split From Lori Harvey
The 35-year-old also shared how he was able to move on after his “very first public breakup” with Lori Harvey last year.
I think for me it’s just that I was lucky enough to have a lot of work. I’m a firm believer in that what’s for you is what’s for you, and coming out of that situation — not to give it, you know, any energy and kind of move from that — is you know, it was an experience for me to grow and learn.
The actor went on to say that he’s in a great space with his career. And he’s basking in the “light” of that.
I’m in my light right now. This is my Jordan year, I mean that. This is my year. There’s so much going on, so many blessings, so many great things. This is at a point in my career where there’s not a lot of people telling me ‘no’ and everything’s wide open.

The Actor’s Previous ‘Saturday Night Live’ Skit
As The Shade Room previously reported, the actor took the stage during Saturday Night Live. And jokingly addressed his split from Harvey.
Most people after a breakup are like, ‘I’m going to get in better shape.’ But I was already in Creed shape!
Instead of focusing on his physique, Jordan said that he chose to focus on learning a new language.
So I had to be like, ‘All right, I guess I’ll learn a new language.’ Anyway, estoy en Raya.
Roommates, are you happy to see that the actor is in good spirits? And will you be watching Creed III?
