It’s not just because he’s a world-renowned football soccer player, or that he has the world’s most perfect family, or even that he’s one of the world’s greatest dresses–no, David Beckham is someone we truly love because he seems like a genuinely wonderful person.
His charisma is evident in everything he does, especially his latest interview with Mr. Porter. The interview is based around David’s style, with the author noting that “Most men who are famous for style or fashion have a look; a distinctive way of dressing. Mr. Beckham doesn’t as he, himself, is the look.”
“He is the look.” That sounds right.
And he is the look we are really fond of. Although he claims to not put as much effort into his outfits as we all assume he would. “I don’t know… The style thing, it’s not something I do on purpose, I don’t wake up in the morning and think I’m going to wear this and this today, I just go out in what I feel comfortable in.” So he’s just one of those lucky ones who looks good in whatever he wears. Although a few of his hairstyles have been quite questionable in the past. (See video below.)
David also chatted with Mr. Porter about his recent string of film roles. While he is in a new short film called, Outlaws, he only does full-length stuff with his buddy Guy Ritchie asks. Plus, acting isn’t something he wants to start doing full time.
“I saw an article the other day that said this is my new career, and it’s really not. It’s something that I’ve dipped myself into from time to time, but I only did it for a friend, Guy. I did a small bit in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and I’ve done little bit more for him in [Knights of the Roundtable:] King Arthur, and then obviously there’s what we’ve done with the Outlaws. But it’s definitely not my new career, it’s just fun, it’s not something that I’m training to be better at.”
David, we are happy to watch you have fun. And model clothes, which you, dear reader, can enjoy in the gallery. You should also check out the rest of his interview with Mr. Porter here. It’s really quite adorable. Especially when he talks about his sons. But I’ll leave that for you appreciate.
