David Beckham admits to using a body double in portions of his H&M ad, but confirms that’s his “bum.” And his crotch. Thank goodness.
The immensely hot soccer star appears in a short film for H&M (directed by Guy Ritchie) sporting boxers from his Bodywear range and running through the streets of Los Angeles. Apparently, some of the scenes were shot by a body double due to scheduling issues, but not the important ones, if you know what I mean.
Beckham appeared on the live French television show Le Grand Journal Thursday night and was asked about the body double matter. And he set the record straight:
“No, I can say the crotch is mine and the backside is mine as well,” adding “I heard this the other day. Someone said that I had a stand-in for my bum, but no, I can confirm that’s my bum.”
H&M also issued a statement clarifying that a body double was used in “smaller parts of the video” due to David’s “tight schedule.”
