Black Panther Fans Are Still Shipping Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o at the 2019 SAG Awards
Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o were all smiles seated next to each other at Sunday night's SAG Awards.
The actors starred together in Black Panther, nominated for best cast in a motion picture and best stunt ensemble in a motion picture, the latter of which the Marvel flick took home early in the night.
For the award show, the 12 Years a Slave actress, 31, stunned in head-to-toe black, which included a sheer skirt and blazer-inspired top. Jordan, 35, wore a Louis Vuitton, pastel-colored harness over his double-breasted suit.
The pair last acknowledged their undeniable chemistry earlier this month.
“We’re good friends,” Jordan told Entertainment Tonight. “Honestly, we’ve known each other a really long time and respect each other and I love this girl to death.”
Nyong’o, of course, feels the same.
“It’s flattering at the end of the day. I think it’s such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with and too for us to find each other as actors and get to work together, it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other’s company on and off screen,” Nyong’o explained to ET.
The hilarious clip features The Walking Dead alum, 40 — dressed in a stunning red Rodarte gown — strolling in front of an elevator as the doors slowly open to reveal Jordan with his arms wrapped around Nyong’o.
Gurira then steps into the elevator, pushes the Creed star aside, and dips Nyong’o — in electric-blue Calvin Klein — so she can give her another smooch as the doors close.
Nyong’o shared the clip on her Instagram with the caption: “When the cat’s away…”
Jordan also posted it, writing, “And I’m still KING,” with the crown and crying-laughing emojis.
