They’re not afraid to pack on the PDA. And Michael B Jordan and his girlfriend Lori Harvey put on an amorous display on Friday during a date night at Craig’s in West Hollywood.
Their outing comes as Michael shapes up to appear in plenty of romantic scenes with co-star Chanté Adams for the new film directed by Denzel Washington, Journal For Jordan.
The Black Panther actor, 34, looked as handsome as ever as he modelled a stone co-ord which featured a patterned open shirt and matching beige slacks.
He teamed his busy-patterned short-sleeved shirt with a trademark crisp white vest and accessorised with a short silver chain. Michael looked sleek as he sported an all-over buzz-cut alongside some very dashing facial hair. His other half, 24, put on a stylish display in a slouchy leather black jumpsuit – which boasted a strapless neckline and tie-waist detailing.
Lori, who’s father is famous actor and Family Feud host Steve Harvey, looked stunning as she stepped out for her date in a pair of delicate black stilettos. The brown-eyed beauty accessorised modestly with only a rose gold watch and a few sparkly bangles on her wrist, while she carried her essentials in a wine leather crocodile purse.
The brunette dazzled with her glamorous makeup palette, which included a bronze eyeshadow look, winged eyeliner and a slick of nude lipgloss on her pout. The pair waltzed into the high-class Craig’s restaurant hand-in-hand before cosying up to a romantic meal together.
The pair were first romantically linked in November 2020 when Michael was spotted with his now-partner while spending time in Atlanta. The two kept things low-key over the next month before they went Instagram official this past January after having spent New Year’s Eve together.
The following month, Lori’s father Steve publicly commented that he approved of the pair’s relationship and expressed that the Fruitvale Station actor was good for his daughter.The Creed star spoke to People in April and expressed that, although he generally keeps his love life under wraps, he was enthusiastic about his new girlfriend.
‘I’m still private, and I want to protect that, but it just felt like it was a moment of just wanting to put it out there and move on. I am extremely happy,’ he said.
‘I think when you get older, you feel more comfortable about the [public nature] of the business that we’re in. So for me, it was a moment to, I guess, take ownership of that and then get back to work,’ he remarked.
His new film is centered around the relationship between First Sergeant Charles Monroe King (Jordan) and journalist Dana Canedy (Adams), whose 2008 Pulitzer Prize winning memoir provides material for the movie.King had kept journals of his deployment in the Iraq War – in which he perished in 2006 – with messages for his son Jordan, who was seven months old when his father died.
While Denzel won’t be seen in front of the camera for this project, the dramatic film marks Washington’s fourth directorial effort, following the Oscar-winning Fences in 2016. Both Jordan and Washington are producers on the movie, and Jordan said he was ‘a sponge right now’ working with the Hollywood icon.
A Journal For Jordan will have a limited release in the US on December 10 before a wide release on December 22. The UK release will follow on 28 January 2022.
