David Beckham is the guy who, thanks to his divine body, magically popularized the game of soccer in the States among women and men alike. Women want to do him, men want to be like him and hell, even some men want to do him, too! Beckham is also probably the only guy in the world who finds Victoria Beckham to be talented in any other than the procreative sense, but this only speaks well of him. In a business where marriages have the average expiration date of a dairy product*, Becks and Vicky have been together since 1997, and their relationship has not curdled a bit. Quite on the contrary – they keep making good looking babies and naming them with adorable names (come on, Harper is such a great literary reference, and she is SO cute!), and they still seem to genuinely love each other.
Yes, David Beckham is an impossibly hot, fit and successful guy with no real vices that we know of (except maybe the fact that he’s partial to tacky and excessive tattoos), and nothing can take that away from him… almost.
The major perk of being so attractive is that you get to be 30 feet tall on billboards across the globe (that’s, what, like a 5 foot fancy-underwear-adorned-junk right there), but the downside is that you leave yourself in the hands of supposedly professional photographers and stylists who, instead of making you look even better, go ahead and photoshop the very last breath out of you.
I’ll leave you with these images of David Beckham from his 2013 H&M underwear campaign, but before I go, I must apologize on behalf of all photographers for this atrocity. The stache, however, I am not responsible for…
Oh, and in case you are wondering, this is how I prefer my Beckham: fresh-faced and grungy kind of cute.
