There is no denying that Michael B. Jordan is a megastar. Finding mainstream fame in his role in Black Panther, the 32-year-old has flown all around the world to take on meaningful roles and film in exotic locations.
But all this jet-setting isn’t to say that he’s not a homebody. In fact, the A-lister hadn’t moved out of his parents’ home until recently, admitting on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he’s only just bought his own place.
“It happened!” he said excitedly of the move to Ellen.
It’s good. It’s nice. I’m pretty sure they saged the entire house when I left. Like, they lit incense and bleached it down and got rid of all of me and then I got a place.”
But this certainly isn’t going to mean that he’ll be too far away from his parents, with the star admitting that the move was not a big one.
Michael said he’s just 20 minutes away from his folks in his new spot, adding, “You know… Sunday dinner. Mum and dad, they cook.”
Michael’s close relationship with his parents has never been made secret, with the gorgeous star taking his mum, Donna, as his date to the 2019 Oscars and to the August premiere of David Makes Man.
Nor does he shy away from talking publicly about Donna’s cooking, with the topic being broached on another celebrity talk show.
My mom’s mac and cheese is legendary,” he told Jimmy Fallon in November last year, explaining that he “missed my first Thanksgiving in I don’t know how long” in 2019 while filming in Berlin.
But, thankfully for the star, “somehow she found a way to sneak it, like through customs.”
Michael’s love for his mom only makes him that much more adorable, and we’re sure that the family will still be seeing plenty of each other despite the actor taking a big step towards his adult independence.
