While many celebrities receive prom invitations from teenage super fans, very few actually attend. However, one Michael B. Jordan fan figured out a way to take him as her date, and she didn’t even have to put any uncomfortable pressure on him!
According to People, high school student Audeva Agyeman took a life-sized Michael B. Jordan cutout to prom.
She revealed her plan in a Twitter post, saying:
“After not being able to get a prom date from procrastinating and waiting til the last minute, i spent 3 hours making my sexy prom date.”

While it may not have been the real thing, Agyeman definitely looks like she had a good time!
As it turns out, the Black Panther star enjoyed the idea when he saw it later. He left a comment on The Shade Room’s Instagram post about the cutout, saying:
“This is called commitment!”
As it turns out, this isn’t Jordan’s first time dealing with super fans. In early March, a different fan accidentally broke her retainer while watching Black Panther. Although the actor offered to pay for her dental work, the fan declined. Jordan spoke about the incident in a later interview, saying:
“I talked to her through DM a few times. I offered to pay for it and she graciously declined a couple times. She just said it would totally be worth it if she got a chance to meet me one day if I was ever in the Bay, and that she would love to take a picture with me. I’m still trying to figure out what I can do to surprise her. I’m not sure the next time I’ll be in the Bay. It was a pretty funny story. Definitely want to do something to help her out.”
