He’s been named ‘sexiest man alive’ on more occasions than we care to mention, but David Beckham’s new look is… well, totally gruesome.
The former footballer revealed a new image on Instagram last night, and he’s seen with some huge scars along the side of his head, as well as a very dodgy set of teeth.
Of course, there’s a very good reason he looks so bad… Becks is set to make his film debut in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming movie King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and it looks like he’s been spending some serious time with the makeup and prosthetics team.
See the gruesome post below:
“Rough day at the office @kingarthurmovie @guyritchie,” he wrote.
Becks is set to play a ‘disgruntled knight’ in the upcoming movie, and he’s listed as “Blackleg leader” on his IMDB page.
He’ll be in good company too: Charlie Hunnam. Jude Law, Aiden Gillan, Eric Bana, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, and Djimon Hounsou will all appear in the film.
Speaking about his role, Beckham previously told The Times: “I had 13 lines and practised a huge amount beforehand. Guy had someone come and rehearse with me, and I did that an hour every day in the build-up.”
Becks might be new to the acting game, but he knows that it’ll be a challenge to make the transition from footballer to actor.
“I know that it is a tough profession, where you need a huge amount of skill and discipline, and I wouldn’t want to push myself forward too soon, without learning more about it, and doing a lot more practice.”
King Arthur is set for release on May 12.
