Michael B. Jordan Wanted to 'Show Some Love' to College Kids with Set Visit
May 14, 2018 by: WENN
Michael B. Jordan happily invited a few fans to the college campus set of his Creed sequel because he wanted to "show some love" to the hardworking students.
The Black Panther star recently hit headlines after Temple University student Sylvia Wilson revealed she had been granted an Instagram request to score a photo with Jordan while he was filming on her school grounds in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
He even allowed Wilson to bring a few friends to check out their movie set for Creed II, and it's since been revealed they weren't the only fans who got the opportunity to meet the actor.
Michael explains the small gestures are the least he can do to give back to the local community.
"We were filming on Temple's campus and our base camp was on the parking lot and (from) the dorm room windows, you can see us coming in and out of the hair and make-up trailer," he explained on talk show The View.
"So I was coming out of hair and make-up, and they (students) started screaming out of the window, so I popped by real quick and just said hello."
The 31-year-old even had some soul food cooked for him by one devotee, although he was careful not to criticize her culinary efforts: "It was OK, it was good," the star said. "I'm not gonna put her on blast, she did her thing!"
And Michael insists staying connected with fans, especially those in higher education, has always been important to him.
"They're at college, they're working hard at a degree, so (I wanted to) show some love," he smiled.
"It's one of those things, I'm from New Jersey, I'm from my community," he continued. "I have to, for me, stay grounded in part of that conversation, no matter how big,
no matter all my success or accolades, I gotta be able to have that conversation (with members of the community), no matter where I'm at."
