Legend of the sword

How did Charlie Hunnam get the nickname “12 Inch”?

Charlie Hunnam is opening up about aaaall kinds of things in a new interview with On Demand Entertainment.

The 37-year-old actor, who appears in the feature film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, recently sat down to discuss the film as well as his, ahem, talents that extend well beyond the realm of acting.

Hunnam was asked what nickname he would give himself by combining a unique physical characteristic along with his dad’s name.

“I’d be 12-inch c*ck Billy,” he replied.

He also talked about his mancrush on David Beckham, who makes a brief cameo in the film. He had nothing but praise for the footballer:

David Beckham asked me my opinion a few times on different bits and bobs. I don’t know if it was any help or not, but I was really blown away. It became very clear why and how Beckham’s become the phenomenon that he has. Because he showed up determined to do a good job. He’d worked with a dialect coach, and maybe an acting coach. I sort of anticipated, well, he’s a superstar. This is not his primary or even his secondary focus; this is just a bit of a giggle for him. But that work ethic just shone through. And that, combined with him just being humble and kind and accessible, was very endearing. I’m not a football man, so upfront, I didn’t really have a strong feeling one or way or another. But by the time he left, I had a little bit of a crush on him. He was pretty f–king cool.
