Michael B. Jordan thinks his parents are responsible for his charitable nature.
The 31-year-old actor – who has reprised the role of Adonis Creed in ‘Creed II’ – has revealed he learned to donate his time and money to others from a young age thanks to his parents Donna and Michael.
The movie star – who supports organizations like Feeding America, which is a network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 40 million people – shared: “It just makes sense. My dad manages a food bank and I grew up around that, watching service, going to food pantries and homeless shelters, and just helping out around my community as much as I could.”
Michael explained that giving his time and money to help other people is just “second nature” to him. He told INSIDER: “From my earliest memories I think, it was just second nature. It’s not forced.”
Earlier this month, Michael described himself as a “giver”.
However, the Hollywood star also thinks he’s struck a “nice little balance” between finding time for himself and also taking care of others.
He shared: “For me, I’m always a giver. I’m a pleaser, you know, a fixer. I do a lot of things for other people. That’s something that just comes with me. It’s okay, it’s who I am. Obviously, everyone has their own limits, but I think I’ve found a nice little balance between not spreading myself too thin and, at the same time, helping people.”
What’s more, the actor revealed he’s looking forward to becoming a father one day. He said: “I love kids, man. I can’t wait to be in the right position to start a family of my own. I’m looking forward to the day that I start my own little tribe.”
