Michael B. Jordan is known for his role in 'Creed.'

The Creed star shared that he is "not looking" for a romantic partner, though he would happily welcome the right one into his life.

"But it would take a very special person to understand and grow with me," Jordan, 37, told Shetty, adding, "I want a family [eventually]."

He explained that life in the spotlight and working on his many business ventures make it difficult to be in a relationship.

"Bringing them into my world, what I got going on, isn't easy,” the filmmaker said. "And it's not just, 'I love you, you love me, that should be enough,' right? It's not quite that simple."

"Finding the right person to understand all of me, but then all that comes with me, as well," he described of his ideal partner.

"There's a loneliness that I have. The responsibility that you have is isolating, and the weight is isolating," he continued. "So I think the worst part of that is the feeling like nobody really understands, and sometimes falling into the spaces of just being alone, feeling alone."

When queried about how he finds love, Jordan joked, "I revert back to the last question. It's very lonely!"
