Why Charlie Hunnam has a crush on David Beckham
Charlie Hunnam didn’t expect to be impressed with a novice actor on his latest film King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.
Sure, the guy happened to be a legendary footballer but could David Beckham act?
Hunnam came away impressed – and it turns out a bit smitten.
‘David Beckham asked me my opinion a few times on different bits and bobs,’ Hunnam tells the men’s fashion site, Mr. Porter.
‘I don’t know if it was any help or not, but I was really blown away. It became very clear why and how Beckham’s become the phenomenon that he has. Because he showed up determined to do a good job.
‘He’d worked with a dialect coach, and maybe an acting coach. I sort of anticipated, well, he’s a superstar. This is not his primary or even his secondary focus; this is just a bit of a giggle for him. But that work ethic just shone through.’
Hunnam in the end had developed warm and fuzzy feelings for Beckham for his professionalism ‘combined with him just being humble and kind and accessible, was very endearing.
‘I’m not a football man, so upfront, I didn’t really have a strong feeling one or way or another. But by the time he left, I had a little bit of a crush on him. He was pretty fucking cool.’
