Michael B. Jordan gets Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Michael B. Jordan has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

As reported by Film News, the Creed actor was presented with the 2,751st star as part of a ceremony staged in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Addressing the crowd, Michael insisted he was “extremely humbled and grateful” to be recognised by officials at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s not lost on me how special this moment is and what this represents to our community. So, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you,” he said. “Growing up in Newark, New Jersey, the idea of receiving an honour like this was like a dream. But I’ve always been a dream chaser and never been afraid of hard work.”

Michael went on to note that he was determined to fully soak in the moment.

“When you’re constantly on a journey, (you) very rarely stop and smell the roses and take in the moments,” the 36-year-old continued. “I’m always moving on to the next thing (with) this fleeting feeling of time slipping away from me… For the first time in a really long time, I’m taking this moment in. Thank you.”
