Did You Give Up On Your Exercise Routine? Tyson Beckford Explains How To Keep Going Year-Round
Hers Guy: Tyson Beckford
One of the world’s most-photographed men stays humble by being true to himself
No woman (or man, for that matter) on this earth could deny that Tyson Beckford is one of the most beautiful men alive. Yet, his stratospheric fame—which came with a Polo Sport shoot in the fall of 1994 that quickly ushered him onto countless runways and magazine covers as well as movies and music videos—has, incredibly, not gone to his head.
It makes us wonder how it’s at all possible to be an internationally renowned model, actor, and sex symbol for 20-plus years while remaining modest. But he is just that cool. The key: “I never take myself too seriously. That helps keep me humble. Also, I remind myself this IS a big a deal, but I’m still human.” Hers recently caught up with Beckford to find out how he stays inspired, maintains his phenomenal fitness, and falls in love.

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.”
Anything surprising in your New Year’s resolution?
“I have two movies [including Chocolate City] coming out and just want those to be a success and to be blessed to keep getting great roles.”
How about fitness resolutions? Your Beckford Bar, a portable pushup bar, is a great mass-market workout tool.
“My life is a resolution. I say to myself, ‘Let me work harder, get in the gym more, and try different workout routines.’ ”
What’s your favorite sport/fitness feat?
“I love soccer. I also love running, cycling, and weights. My greatest fitness feat is maintaining my physique throughout the year—and that I’m still in the business 22 years later.”
Do you ever tire of being the hot guy—like your role as Corey in the sizzling 2014 thriller Addicted?
“You know, I don’t consider myself like that. I was an ugly duckling for so long that I learned not to take what people say too literally. Now, when my girlfriend says that kind of thing, though, I believe her!”
What qualities do you value most in a woman you’re dating?
“A sense of humor is a must. Because laughter really is the best medicine. Life will throw you some curves, and you’ve just got to laugh when you can and push forward when you need to.”
Favorite quote of all time:
“Work smart, not hard.”
