US actor Michael B. Jordan (36, "Creed III – Rocky's Legacy") has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Wearing a cobalt blue suit, he unveiled his plaque on Wednesday. As the movie star prepared to receive one of the top awards in the entertainment industry, he beamed with pride while his friends, actor Jonathan Majors, 33, and director-writer Ryan Coogler, 36, gave heartfelt speeches praising his career.
Coogler recalled her first encounter with Jordan at a Starbucks near Universal Studios. Speaking about working together on Black Panther, he said his late pal Chadwick Boseman (1976-2020) was probably looking at them right now and smiling.
Majors was next on the podium. Among other things, he said, according to "NBC News": "I am very honored to call you my friend...no man on this planet deserves that more...I love you to the moon and back."
Jordan is the 2,751. Person who received a star on the Walk of Fame. A day earlier, actress Courteney Cox (58) received the 2750th plaque - she was celebrated on site by her former "Friends" colleagues.
