To get into character for his latest role in the Denzel Washington directed film Journal For Jordan, Michael B. Jordan had to shave off his facial hair. And according to the hunky actor, it was one of the “harder” parts of getting into character to play First Sgt. Charles Monroe King in the emotional film.
“It was one of the harder things I had to do,” he explained.” “First of all, y’all know me, it took me forever to even get this thing to connect so to take it away from me — it was tough. I had a goodbye ceremony and everything. It was bad,” he added with a laugh.
And yes, we know what you’re thinking. Did his boo Lori Harvey, founder of SKN by LH, give him any skin care tips to help aid in the shaving process?
“I typically prefer facial hair but obviously if the role calls for it, it’s got to go. Definitely the skincare routine was helped by my lady.”
