“I haven’t talked to him about it because I’m gonna pretend it hasn’t happened.”

“We’re gonna make another Creed very soon, and I don’t need the ‘’Sexiest Man Alive’’ to… you know what I mean, I just don’t need it. I don’t need any of it. It’s too much for me to shoulder. It’s too much for me to handle. I’m proud of him,” she said.

The actor, who recently starred in Sylvie’s Love opposite Nnamdi Asomugha, said she will ask Jordan to “dial down the sexiness” on the sets of Creed 3.

“We’re not going to make it until later in the year. Who knows what happens? I don’t know if he will still be the ‘’Sexiest Man Alive’’ in six months. It could be Nnamdi,” she added.
