Michael B. Jordan Covers Esquire Magazine Winter 2019
When Michael B. Jordan Promises to Come Home, He Means It
Michael B. Jordan gets his close up on the cover of Esquire magazine’s Winter 2019 cover issue and talks about his Just Mercy film which was adapted from a memoir by Bryan Stevenson, a lawyer and social-justice advocate who has devoted his life to fighting for justice for people behind the walls. The film details the true quest of Stevenson(that’s Jordan) to free an Alabama man named Walter McMillian (Foxx, at the top of his game), who was wrongly convicted of murdering a teenage white girl.
“My artistic side, my emotional side, my intuition, being an empath—I get that from her [his mother]. My discipline, my work ethic—I get that from my dad. So between the two of them, I got the right ingredients.”For more from Michael, visit Esquire.com.
