Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B Jordan’s ‘On Call Push-Ups’ are Giving us Life

Published on February 24th, 2018 | Updated on February 24th, 2018 | By FanFest

On screen, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B Jordan may play (like-minded) enemies but off camera, they’re incredibly close. So close, in fact, that when Lupita says jump, Michael asks ‘how high?’. Well, sort of.

It’s more like when she says ‘Get down’, he drops and gives her a push-up.

When they were filming Black Panther, there was a bet on set, and while we aren’t privy to exactly what the terms were, we know that Michael lost. So at Lupita’s request, he has to drop and give her a push-up, apparently six times.

Now, the video above shows she’s used three, and we think (if we’re counting correctly) we’ve seen 4 or 5 total. So she’s running low on requests, but we don’t think she’s too concerned. He looks happy to oblige and he promises that payback will be worth it. So this doesn’t seem like it’ll come to an end anytime soon.

On top of the bet, fans are loving their banter and companionship that’s been seen on the press tour and on social media. We see it. In fact, we’re not sure how you couldn’t see it. Now, we know that we can’t like…make this request, but if they wanted to date – we’d be on board with the idea.

If not, they’ve already got the best kind of friendship thing down.

You can see Lupita and Michael now in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther.
