Actor Michael B Jordan reportedly lost 25 pounds, now many are calling the actor "skinny". It's not clear why he lost the weight, but people on social media are already speculating..

The actor reportedly lost 20 pounds since he was last seen on the big screen, playing the muscular boxer in the movie Creed.

Michael stepped out at the Santa Barbara film festival looking much skinnier than we've seen him in years.

Michael just finished up his latest movie called Just Mercy, where he plays world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson. The movie follows the life of the attorney as he recounts his experiences and details the case of a condemned death row prisoner whom he fought to free.

It's possible that Michael slimmed down for the role.


But some other fans of the actor are suggesting that Michael's recent weight loss could be something more worrisome.

Some speculated that Michael may be suffering from some type of illness. And others are suggesting that the actor's weight loss could be a result of depression.

Hopefully Michael will explain his weight loss soon, so that fans can stop speculating.

Jordan also recently opened up about the toll playing the villain in “Black Panther” took on his mental health.

The actor revealed that he sought professional help after filming wrapped.

“I went to therapy, I started talking to people, starting unpacking a little bit,” he said.

Jordan discussed his process for getting into character Tuesday in conversation with Oprah Winfrey at the taping of her “SuperSoul Conversations” TV special, which airs Feb. 16 on OWN.

“I was by myself, isolating myself,” Jordan said when Winfrey asked where he went to “get all that nastiness” to play the Marvel super villain.

“I spent a lot of time alone,” Jordan said. “I figured Erik [Killmonger], his childhood growing up was pretty lonely. He didn’t have a lot of people he could talk to about this place called Wakanda that didn’t exist.”
