Eddie Redmayne: Becks is best

David Beckham is a "bone of contention" for Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe.

The 33-year-old star started dating Hannah Bagshawe in 2012 and they tied the knot at the end of last year.

While Eddie is a pin-up for many, there's one handsome man he wouldn't mind looking like.

Having grown up in a very sporty family, Eddie wishes he'd inherited his brothers' talent for soccer - and there's one player he particularly looks up to.

"The things is - and I always have a bone of contention [about this] - but my wife had David Beckham up on her wall when she was younger. He's a legend, so probably him," he admitted to the British edition of OK! magazine.

Eddie added that he has had the pleasure of meeting David, recalling the "Oh my god" moment when the soccer star walked into the Met Ball in New York.

He might not be picked first for sports teams, but the thought of a potential Oscar nomination for his latest film The Theory of Everything might make up for that. And it's not as if Eddie is a one-trick pony anyway.

"I love music and I enjoy singing for myself," he revealed.

"I play the piano, too. Sometimes I over-think things, and the lovely thing about playing the piano is that you have to focus so much on what you're doing - it takes you out of your own headspace. I find it a good way to relax
