Although they’re not a couple in real life, Tessa Thompson and Michael B. Jordan sought couples therapy in order to prepare for their roles as a married couple in “Creed III.” Over the three movies, Bianca and Adonis go from love interests to husband and wife with a baby girl.
The third installment shows cracks in their relationship and the two actors went to marriage counseling as their characters, which Thompson described as “very weird” (via Refinery29). She explained, “OK we were in therapy, yes, as Bianca and Adonis, but we were also reflecting on our own relationships. Since we’ve been making these movies for eight, nine years, we’ve seen each other through various stages in our own romantic things. So we know stuff about each other’s lives. We shared and talked about it.” As they underwent therapy as their fictional characters, Thompson and Jordan grew closer as people.
Thompson and Jordan have also evolved personally through the years. “I think we’ve changed so much over the course of making these films. Eight years isn’t nothing. But I think more than that, it’s like, we have matured as humans and I think we’ve grown so much as our characters have grown,” Thompson shared in an interview with Ode. However, the one thing that has remained the same is how much they continue to adore each other.
