David Beckham for Esquire UK Magazine
Darlings, we went out for a very delicious, but fairly heavy meal last night. We’re telling you this because very delicious, very heavy meals like that tend to leave us both with food hangovers and we’re finding ourselves incredibly sluggish and slightly cranky this morning.
Thankfully, we have David Beckham to ease the pain. Not literally, of course. As far as we know, he’s still living with Vicki in a house made entirely out of mirrors. We just mean we have him to stare at and now we’re passing that on to you. It’s a lovely way to start the day, don’t you find?
David Beckham covers the September 2012 issue of Esquire UK magazine photographed by Josh Olins.
On how he wants to be remembered:
“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?”
On taking his clothes off for photo shoots:
“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.”
On his friendship with the royal family:
“It’s a very normal relationship. With Harry as well. They’re very easy to get along with. They love their sport. William loves Aston Villa, unfortunately, which obviously I give him a bit of stick about.”
But he really does only have one facial expression.
