On occasion, Terry said, “There is nothing that symbolizes stardom more than Strahan. We’re former athletes and you know, the thing is — I remember when you retired and we were sitting there talking about, ‘Should I try this Hollywood thing?'” Crews recalled. “When I see everything you’ve done since then, it’s so truly inspiring to me, to every person out there as a Black man, as an athlete, as every American should strive to be the kind of person you are. And the one word I have for Michael Strahan is ‘integrity.'”

“I was less nervous going to space,” Strahan joked, referencing his trip on the Blue Origin NS-19 sub-orbital spaceflight in December 2021.

“You kind of wake up and you’re here. But I’m happy I’m here, because I never thought I’d make it here. I was just living, I was just enjoying life, I was just working. I was just trying to enjoy everything that came my way,” he said.

He added, “But you look and you wonder what’s your purpose. And I found out my purpose is pretty much people. My purpose is pretty much to enjoy life and to spread joy and spread happiness and to enjoy everything that comes your way and to make sure everyone in your life feels important.”
