David Beckham Named People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2015 – WATCH VIDEO
David Beckham is People magazine’s 2015 Sexiest Man Alive. The announcement was made on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Kimmel interviewed Beckham via Skype and also revealed the cover of this year’s issue, which is set to hit newsstands on Wednesday.
Before announcing that the 2015 Sexiest Man Alive was Beckham, Kimmel noted that he was once again inexplicably passed over for the honor. With Beckham’s face obscured and his voice altered, Kimmel had the studio audience guess who it was by asking different questions, including “Are you married to a celebrity,” “Do you have any tattoos,” “Are you an athlete,” “Do you have an accent,” and “Do you have any kids?” Then, a audience member guessed it was Beckham, and the magazine’s cover and Beckham himself were revealed.
When Kimmel asked if there was anyone he wanted to thank for the honor, Beckham jokingly said his parents for bringing him into this world, as well as his hairdresser. He told the talk show host that he hadn’t seen the cover until just one hour before it was announced.
Beckham now joins such other sexy men as Mel Gibson, who was the first recipient in 1985. Since then, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, and Richard Gere have won the title twice. Last year’s winner, of course, was Chris Hemsworth. Other recent Sexiest Man Alive winners have included Adam Levine, Channing Tatum, and Bradley Cooper.
