A few days ago it was fellow actress Courtney Cox's turn.
Tears flowed, too.
It was hardly less emotional at the next honor on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
Shortly before the theatrical release of »Creed III – Rocky's Legacy«, US actor and director Michael B. Jordan was immortalized there.
The 36-year-old star unveiled the 2,751st plaque on the famous sidewalk on Wednesday (local time).
The boxing drama »Creed III« hits cinemas this weekend and is Jordan's directorial debut.
He also plays the lead role of the boxer Adonis Creed, as in the first two films of the trilogy.
Jordan enjoyed the "pretty cool" star honor at the ceremony.
He never dreamed of doing that as a kid in New Jersey, the star said through tears.
He is grateful to now have a star to represent their community alongside legends like Sidney Poitier, Cicely Tyson and Sam Cooke.
Guest speakers included Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, 36, and Creed III co-star Jonathan Majors, 33.
Coogler brought Jordan in front of the camera for his directorial debut Next Stop: Fruitvale Station in 2013.
It was Jordan's first feature film lead role.
In the factual drama he played the African American Oscar Grant, who was shot by white police officers in a subway station in 2009.
The low-budget film received numerous awards, including the trophy for best first film in Cannes.
Jordan starred as King's Son T'Challa's (Chadwick Boseman) antagonist Erik Killmonger in the 2018 superhero flick Black Panther.
His leading role as a young lawyer in the legal drama »Just Mercy« also attracted attention.
In 2020, Jordan was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
Courtney Cox received the 2750th star on Tuesday – surrounded by former “Friends” colleagues.
