If you needed a reason to swoon today, you’re in luck: David Beckham sizzles on the pages of Esquire UK, and we have a plethora of images for you to feast your eyes on.
Yes, Beckham was fully clothed for this particular shoot, but it hasn’t always been this way. Thinking back on his less-clothed images, he explained to Esquire, “It’s definitely got easier over the years, but when I was in New York, seeing a huge poster [of himself in a pair of briefs] on the side of a building, that was quite daunting. I remember driving past there, and stopping and running out and taking a picture, and this guy walked past me and he was like, ‘Oh, my God! Have you seen your d**k up there?’ Something disgusting like that. That was funny.”
He would like to be remembered for something more, though: “Just as a hard-working footballer. I want to be remembered firstly as a good and successful footballer because that’s what I’ve done for many years. And then who knows after that?”
