David Gandy - David Grandy Has Grown Into Looks
Model David Gandy says he's grown into his looks and claims he was nothing special while growing up.
David Gandy says he's grown into his looks.
The 32-year-old heartthrob is one of the world's most successful male models but insists he doesn't think he's that good-looking and admits he wasn't anything special while growing up.
He said: ''I have a fortunate placing of bones and muscles that enables me to do what I do. It's the reason I work; it's not a reason I'm better than anyone else. To be honest, I don't think I'm that great looking. I've grown into my looks but at school I wasn't the guy who got the girls or who was thought to be hot. I didn't have a girlfriend till I was 21, which is pretty late. I was a loner. All I saw in the mirror was a big nose and a slightly chubby body.''
David - who previously dated The Saturdays singer Mollie King - says he's always been shy when it comes to girls and not much has changed.
He told live! magazine: ''I remember being in awe of this guy at university who could just talk to anyone. I still think if a guy wants girls, it's more about the gift of the gab than the way you look. In my head I still think of myself as I was at 15 or 16.
''The outward perception changes but the inward never really does.''
