Michael B. Jordan admitted living with his parents can make dating awkward.

The 'Black Panther' star shares his Hollywood Hills mansion with his mother and father, Donna and Michael A. Jordan, and though the dynamic between himself and his ''room-mates'' can be ''weird'', they try to make allowances for one another.

Asked if living with his parents cramps his dating style, he nodded and said: ''Who are you telling, man? And they know that too, so it's a balance, and about understanding where they are in their life and marriage. But you know, you have room-mates, but they're also your parents. And that's a weird dynamic.''

However, the 30-year-old actor admitted it meant a lot to be able to keep his parents secure by sharing his house with them.

He told The Times newspaper: ''Look, it's every kid's dream, to buy their mom and dad a house. It was a bucket-list thing for me.''

The 'Fantastic Four' star used to want to change his name when he was younger because of comparisons to legendary basketball star Michael Jordan, but it eventually made him vow to make a name for himself in his own right.

He said: ''I just thought, 'You know what? I don't want people to think of Michael Jordan when they hear my name. I want them to know me.' ''

Michael previously admitted living with his parents had led to some awkward run-ins from time to time.

He said: ''I love my parents but we have a roommate relationship right now which is interesting! You get home cooked meals but then you also have those random run-ins that might just be a little uncomfortable from time to time. Sometimes shirtless. Maybe naked!''
