For the first time, the magazine has chosen an athlete for this honor.
David Beckham is one of those few lucky sports personalities who were famous not only for their sports skills and talent but for their looks as well. Beckham is still a heartthrob even after retiring from soccer and being a dad of four kids. And People magazine has named this British superstar player the Sexiest Man Alive for 2015.
Usually, People Magazine chooses someone from entertainment industry for this honor like previous year the title went to 'Thor' actor Chris Hemsworth and before that it was the singer Adam Levine who received the title.
But this year’s November issue of People’s magazine had a surprising twist as a soccer player was gracing the magazine’s cover. In fact, it’s the first time when an athlete has been given Sexiest Man Alive title.
People’s Sexiest Man Alive is not just about the looks or attractiveness. It is something more than that. Beckham is no longer on the soccer field and is not receiving any big awards. Still, he is named sexiest man alive. Probably, the headline sums it up the best ‘He’s a romantic husband, a devoted dad - and he vacuums!”
Beckham says. “It’s a huge honor. And I’m very pleased to accept.”
The iconic soccer player is a sex symbol for almost two decades but he himself does not think the same way as the others think about him.
“I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person,” said Beckham in People’s cover story. “I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and looked and feel good, but I don’t ever think of myself that way.”
Beckham, 40, married to fashion mogul and former ‘Spice Girl’ Victoria Beckham in 1999 and the couple has 4 kids. Beckham announced his retirement two year ago in 2013.
