Charlie Hunnam Admits He Had a Crush on David Beckham

Charlie Hunnam Admits He Had a Crush on David Beckham

Charlie Hunnam looks super suave in his new photo shoot for Mr Porter‘s latest story!

Here is what the 36-year-old King Arthur: Legend of the Sword actor shared with the mag:

On his decision to pull out of Fifty Shades of Grey: “It was a difficult decision, but I think it was the right decision. But I really struggled. I mean, I’m incredibly indecisive when it comes to those big, big work decisions – and really, all decisions. I feel like we’re just f–king inundated with having to make decisions in our lives, and it’s somewhat relentless.”

On therapy: “I read a lot of books about the human condition, and about where we are, trying to understand some of the things that I deal with. But I’ve never had therapy. Again, it’s really been a matter of finding the time to sit down and dedicate time to it. I do think it would be really useful. I’d say that the majority of people I know who seem to be cracking on and know themselves very well and have very well-balanced approaches to life seem to have done a lot of work in therapy.”

On working with David Beckham on King Arthur: “David Beckham asked me my opinion a few times on different bits and bobs. 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. 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. But by the time he left, I had a little bit of a crush on him. He was pretty f–king cool.”

    *swoons* Charlie “Sex on Legs” Hunnam is getting handsomer by the minute.

    It’s good that he has pulled out of Fifty Shades, that movie sucks.

  • Hyejeong

  • Ophelia

    Damn, he’s so sexy!

    I can’t believe they are still asking him about 50 Shades. It’s not like it was the Godfather movies he passed on. Just some lousy forgettable trash movie.

  • Angeline cohl

    his ridiculous thing with 50shades…again and again…Although! With Charlie being in the movie and with his talent now he would be on the top of the world because he would have a huge franchise like 50 shades + lost city of Z+ Papillon and maybe King Arthur his schedule fit perfectly because when they were filming the 2nd and 3rd 50shades Charlie was not working. Personally i think with the help of 50 shades he would have even bigger projects by now. BUT it is stupid to still talk about it cause it’s old news.
