Of Course, Steve Harvey Brings Up Sexiest Man Alive When Asked About Michael B. Jordan Dating His Daughter

steve harvey jimmy kimmel interview february 2021

Steve Harvey is very well known for being one of the busiest men in the business of show, but, recently, another member of his family has also come to the forefront more. Harvey's daughter, Lori, made some serious headlines earlier this year when it was revealed that she's begun dating Black Panther villain and Creed franchise star Michael B. Jordan. As you may know, Jordan was named People's Sexiest Man Alive last November, and, of course, when asked about the new romance recently, Harvey made sure to bring up Jordan's title.

Rumors that Lori Harvey and Michael B. Jordan were an item surfaced when photos of the duo leaving a private jet over Thanksgiving weekend leaked. But, then, early January saw those reports ramp up once chatter began that they had vacationed in Utah over New Year's weekend. Now, the news is official, and when Steve Harvey appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live recently, he had this to say when asked about the relationship between Jordan and his daughter:

Well, first of all, let's be clear about something. He is a nice guy, but he is not the Sexiest Man Alive to me. At all.

I mean, I think we all already appreciate the fact that Steve Harvey is going to keep it as real as possible no matter what, right? When Harvey, well-dressed (as usual) in the most red I believe I've ever seen on one person who is not wearing a dress or onesie, answered, he even gave special emphasis on the "not" and the "to me" in his reply, just in case any of us would have even a shred of doubt as to his beliefs in the matter.

I'm sure a lot of parents would be a bit incredulous, taken aback or even just totally unsure if their daughter were to begin dating someone famous, not to mention someone who's been named the Sexiest Man Alive. But, as we know, very little truly seems to ruffle the brightly-colored feathers of seasoned comedian / host / author Steve Harvey. In fact, Harvey was asked about his impression of Michael B. Jordan just a few weeks back, once it was confirmed that Jordan and Lori Harvey were an item, and he had this to say, in part:

Nice guy. But I got this little section partner, where all I gotta do is click a switch and I can hate your ass… You ain't the sexiest man in the world to me! Let's be clear about that.

You know? I can't come close to faulting the man, despite the millions of people who surely disagree with his assessment of Jordan's sexiness. Steve Harvey is a man of his convictions, and, as always, he's just calling it like he sees it!

You can watch his full chat with Jimmy Kimmel, which is full of Harvey's trademark humor and wildly-expressive faces, below:
