David Beckham named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’
Soccer star turned model/spokeperson/MLS owner David Beckham has been named the “Sexiest Man Alive” for 2015 by People magazine.
Beckham called the title a “huge honor” but added that he was surprised to get the crown, telling the magazine, “I never feel that I‘m an attractive, sexy person.”
The 40-year-old retired from professional soccer in 2013 but has remained in the public eye, serving as a model (with Kevin Hart) for H&M, and as the face of an ownership group that will bring the MLS to Miami by the 2017 season.
Beckham is the first professional athlete to win the Sexiest Man Alive mantle since the magazine began handing it out in 1985.
