International soccer sensation David Beckham was named People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive! on Tuesday.
And get this, Empire star Jussie "the goat" Smollet was in the running for the title, lol.
"It's a huge honor," Beckham, 40, tells PEOPLE. "And I'm very pleased to accept."
He added: "I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person."
"I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way."
When asked what his wife, model Victoria Beckham, thought about the honor, he replied.
"I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway! But she said, 'Congratulations!'"
The issue featuring Beckham on the cover is on newsstands Wednesday.
