When it comes to Michael B. Jordan, we all know what we love most about him — those lips, that smile, the way he sticks out his tongue…okay, there’s actually quite a long list of things we love about MBJ in a physical sense. But what traits does the actor love most in a woman?

Essence magazine got to the bottom of that mystery in their profile of the Black Panther star who’s also the cover star for their June 2018 issue. And while the first characteristic is a typical one, his full answer might surprise you a bit.

“The eyes, eyes are important to me,” the 31 year old told the mag. “You can tell a lot. The eyes–they don’t tell lies. The neck, the hands.

“There’s something about a woman’s hands,” Jordan continued. “It’s important. Of course, I’m interested in the lips and body. [But] I’m not just looking for looks, I’m into the whole person. Also her smell, how the woman smells. It’s crucial.”

So eyes, neck, hands, and scent. We can handle that.

In case you’re looking for a little more motivation to go schedule that manicure or pick up a new scent at Sephora, check out all of Michael B. Jordan’s photos in the June issue of Essence, here.
