Michael B. Jordan is such a class act.

Just several days after being forced to answer a seemingly uncomfortable question during an interview with Atlanta’s Rock 100.5 about his new film, Fantastic Four, the actor is speaking out about the moment which he and his co-star, Kate Mara call “ignorant.”

During an interview on July 30, radio host Steven J. Rickman asked Jordan and Mara, “From what I’ve seen, you’re brother and sister. You’re white and you’re black. How does that happen?”

In response, Jordan replied, “They could be raised as brother and sister … There’s a whole bunch of family dynamics that could be without the obvious adoption.”

On Tuesday, Michael sat down with HuffPostLive and reacted to the awkward question, telling the host Marc Lamont Hill, “Sometimes journalists use that room as a safety net to kind of say whatever they want and ask questions that they would never normally ask you outside of that room,” said Jordan.

Jordan, who plays Johnny Storm/Human Torch,continued,”As actors, sometimes we feel the pressure to always say what you’re supposed to and kind of put your best foot forward promoting the film. We don’t want to bring any negativity towards the positive message and what we’re actually there to do.”

He added, “We’re still people. We’re still human. So, that kind of bothers us. At the end of the day, we don’t want to bring the attention to ignorance, and we always take the high road on these things and move forward, you know?” Jordan said.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
