This probably is the most obvious news of all time, but it definitely feels good to know that the football god defeated all of the Hollywood clan. David Beckham has been officially given the “Sexiest Man Alive” title for this year by PEOPLE magazine. The news was revealed during Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night. Through a video conference, Beckham interacted with Kimmel’s audience while wearing a mask. The audience asked him various funny questions while trying to identify the mysterious masked man.
A star footballer, family man, father of four, and a proud member of Football Hall of Fame, David Beckham is an extremely humble man. He dethroned 2014 winner Chris Hemsworth to claim this prestigious title. There were multiple speculations earlier on who will win this title. Some speculated it to be the Martian star Matt Damon, Jurassic Park lead Chris Pratt, or Idris Elba. But after receiving tough competition from all these other sexy men, Beckham swiftly moved to the top spot.
Whether you know about Beckham’s amazing football career or not, you probably know how amazingly good-looking he is, so this news was kind of like stating the inevitable truth. The footballer has made a name for himself in terms of style and fashion. When asked about how he feels after being chosen as the “Sexiest Man Alive,” he shyly replied that he feels highly privileged. “I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don’t ever think of myself that way,” said Beckham.
Although David Beckham has been a sex symbol for two decades, he does not feel the same as his fans. According to him, he has never thought of himself as a sexy and attractive person. With this title, he becomes part of the elite club which includes Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, and Adam Levine. Another reason to love him more is the way he eases out with tongue-in-cheek humor and still manages to stay grounded. “It is the best moment of my career,” Beckham said jokingly. “I would obviously like to thank my parents for bringing me into this world, of course. I would like to thank my hairdresser, my stylist and Photoshop,” said Beckham in his closing statement.
He was also asked about the reactions he got from his family members, especially his very good-looking wife, Victoria Beckham. The reply came instantly, “I wish she would think about me the same way but she just said congratulations.” His sons also joined in with crazy reactions. Beckham shared on Jimmy Kimmel Live that his sons just laughed at him for hours and said, “Really? Sexiest Man Alive? Really?”
Gladly, the fans do not share the same sentiments, and Beckham thanked them for that. “It’s a great honor and I am privileged to accept,” said Beckham. He might be a 40-year-old man with four kids, but Beckham is aging so gracefully that fans love him even more.
