Maybe it's because he prefers his martinis stirred instead of shaken, but David Beckham has confirmed he is not in the running to be the next James Bond!
The soccer star shut down the speculation that he could play the part of the iconic action hero, saying:
"I saw that the other day and I laughed many times about it. Definitely won't be in the next James Bond."
We know, we know. We would LOVE to see the beautiful athlete smolder on the big screen, but it looks like we're going to have to live to dream another day.

To be honest, the 40-year-old hunk says he's really just dabbling in acting:
"I've never, ever thought about going into any kind of acting. People have actually started talking about me and my new career of acting, which – it's not my new career of acting, it's just something that I'm kind of stepping into and enjoying myself with."
While we are a little bummed, we know there's plenty of gorgeous — and talented — contenders for the coveted role. Who would U like to see fighting the baddies? SOUND OFF in the comments!
