Hometown: Marseille, France
Status: Married to dancer-model Véronique Zidane since 1993
Why He's a Star: Call him the French David Beckham. Well, actually, this footballer knows Becks quite well – they were Real Madrid teammates until Zizou (his nickname) retired in July. Even hotter: He's been FIFA World Player of the Year three times.
What Makes Him Sexy: He sticks up for himself. Sure, it was the headbutt felt 'round the world when Zidane nailed Italy's Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup Final, but his reasons were honorable: He was reacting to alleged insults about his mother and sister.
