In an interview with the magazine, he said, ‘You know, everybody always made that joke, like… Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get. But it’s a good club to be a part of.’

The 33-year-old added that the women in his family are ‘definitely proud of this one… when my grandmother was alive, it was something that she collected, and then my mom naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well. This is one that they’re definitely going to have a special place for’.

Jordan is due to next appear in Without Remorse, a Tom Clancy adaptation that follows a former Navy SEAL who wants to avenge his wife’s death. He’s also set to direct the third instalment of the Creed series.

As for what the next decade holds, Jordan hopes to be ‘maybe directing a little more, acting less, producing a lot more… just growing, whatever the next evolution of me is’.

He said, ‘Hopefully a family by then, I’m going to throw that in the universe. I want to make an impact all over the world and not just through the roles that I play.’
