Charlie Hunnam revealed he had a crush on David Beckham. The two got close while working together on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

During an interview with MR PORTER, the 36-year-old actor gushed about the 41-year-old former football player. He said: "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," he added.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword will hit U.S. theaters on May 17. The film directed by Guy Ritchie also stars Jude Law, Eric Bana, Annabelle Wallis and Aidan Gillen.
