Michael B. Jordan Gets Tight-Lipped About Tessa Thompson On “Tonight Show”
It seems as if every few weeks or so, women everywhere get curious about who Creed II star Michael “Bae” Jordan is dating. PEOPLE reports the 31-year-old recently revealed that while he and Black Panther co-star Lupita N’yongo have good chemistry (the pair participated in a passionate faux kiss in a photo booth during last weekend’s Golden Globe awards) they aren’t dating. 35-year-old N’yongo then insisted to Entertainment Tonight that it’s truly a pleasure working with Jordan and while it’s all love when they link up, it’s mostly reserved for embarrassing bets and jokes:
“It’s flattering at the end of the day. I think it’s such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with and too for us to find each other as actors and get to work together, it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other’s company on and off screen.”
However, when it comes to his Creed II star, Tessa Thompson, it’s clear the actress is in his thoughts even if viewers don’t exactly know why. During a Friday appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the actor who currently is the face of Coach in the fashion brand’s latest campaign, played a game of “Pour It Out” with the host. The game involved a set of three coasters with personal questions for both Fallon and Jordan. The pair took turns reading the questions to themselves before answering verbally so that the audience only knows the answer and not the question. At this point the players have the option of revealing the question or taking the shot accompanying the coaster. On one shot, Jordan smiles sarcastically before matter-of-factly answering, “Tessa Thompson” and then quickly takes the shot. Of course we have no idea what the question was but it’s hilarious and suspect as hell nonetheless.
Jordan however does reveal who his last celebrity text came from. You can find out and watch Jordan’s “Pour It Out” performance below:
