“We shot Fruitvale three years ago. Literally, before we started shooting we were walking to set, and [Coogler] was like, ‘I got this idea about Apollo Creed’s son. Do you want to play him? I was like, ‘cool,'” revealed Jordan. “Me and him got a connection and chemistry. We want to continue to make films and tell stories that need to be told.”
During the interview, Jordan was also asked about rumors he has dated various celebrities. In particular, rapper Iggy Azalea and model Kendall Jenner were mentioned. Jordan denied ever being involved with either woman, and he claimed the stories were fabricated by the media.
“I got caught in the frame, in the same picture. It’s so weird when you’re walking somewhere and you get caught in a picture – all of a sudden y’all are dating. Why is that?” questioned Jordan. “I don’t watch a lot of TV. All that extra stuff, that’s not me. I’m about my work, my business, my friends, my family. I have a good time when I’m supposed to. But other than that, I’m not into all that extra drama.”
