The actor is slightly in awe of Becks

James Corden has quite a man crush on good pal David Beckham.

The actor, 35, isn’t interested in the 38-year-old footballer’s famously toned bottom but is always amazed by his alluring scent when they hang out together.

‘I’ve not spent a huge amount of time thinking about [his bum] or looking at it, but all I can tell you is that the man just smells incredible,’ says James.

‘Ah, jeez… it takes you somewhere else.’

The pair became friends after performing a comedy sketch together for BBC‘s Sport Relief in 2010 and James has revealed that David once presented him with an Adidas tracksuit.

Dad-of-one James wishes he gave off an aroma as sexy as David‘s.

‘I always think if I stay near enough it will rub off on me, but it doesn’t,’ says James.

‘You just end up looking weird.’
