Charlie Hunnam admits he has a major ‘crush’ on David Beckham

By Joshua Haigh

Charlie Hunnam has fast become one of the hottest stars on TV thanks to his role in Sons of Anarchy.

While promoting his latest film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the hunky actor opened up about the crush he developed for his co-star – the one and only David Beckham.

Charlie said that he found himself completely enamoured with the retired football player while he was on-set last year.

“It became very clear why and how Beckham’s become the phenomenon that he has,” explained the star.

“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.”

“And that, 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,” he added. “But by the time he left, I had a little bit of a crush on him. He was pretty fucking cool,” added the former Queer as Folk star.
