London: Former soccer ace David Beckham has jokingly suggested Ben Stiller is trying to steal his crown as the Sexiest Man Alive.
The retired sports star was handed the coveted honour by People magazine last week, but has claimed Stiller's on-screen alter-ego Derek Zoolander is trying to knock him off his perch.
Beckham, 40, took to his Instagram account to post a picture of Ben on the front of the magazine and captioned it: "'I'm barely a week into my reign and already this man is trying to steal my thunder AGAIN @peoplemag #sexiestmanalive #bluesteel. (sic)"
The Brit's quip came shortly after Stiller sent him a picture of the humorous cover, with the caption: "Hey @DavidBeckham remember when you were so mad about this?? Lol #ThrowbackMonday (sic)"
