David Beckham Wants to Be A Movie Star

David may be moving over to the states on account of his huge soccer deal, but rumor has it he's looking to do a little more than play for the US team - according to Giorgio Armani anyway! The fashion designer recently said that the real reason Becks has come to LA is because he wants to act! Here's more:

"If (reports that the deal is worth $250 million) are true, then he has done the right thing. And I think he wants to be an actor, not a footballer," Armani, who has designed the England soccer team's outfits in recent years, told reporters on the sidelines of Milan's fashion shows.

"He is a very handsome man and his football career could be nearing an end," he said. "Also look at his wife...I saw her at Tom Cruise's wedding and she is a very bubbly lady," he said.

David is gorgeous and if he wants to strut his stuff on the big screen as well as the football field we say - bring it on. Plus think of all of the other athletes who have successfully transitioned into an acting career. There's Shaq, Michael Jordan, Dan, okay, there's always a first for everything.

I hope he has a nude scene as soon as possible, I bet Tiny Tom is hoping the same thing! Ohsuri, you are hilarious. Oh Becks! ________________ Oh Hayden!

Yeah.. J-Lo..Jim Carey..Will Smith, WTF is TinyTom putting in their water. Um... maybe TinyTom buying that production company makes it worth being his friend for some steady work? I think Posh is a lot smarter than we think. I am sure she is using the UFO nut for something. I just hope Posh understands how the US feels about that GMD!! She won't get far stepping up his 2 ft ladder. I think my sons Thomas the tank play set is bigger than TinyTOM!!!

Well he can always take voice lessons. Hollywood is going to love the face - I already do - well me and like a million other women.

I am so upset about the Beckham-Cruise alignment and the Smith (Will&Jada)-Cruise love going around. They might be as contagious as the pox Preppy to the max!

MBM ohsuri, I couldn't agree with you more. they really need to distance themselves from creepy cruises. unfortch, i think posh spice (hee hee i love calling her that) is really impressed by them...their wealth...huge home...plane...tom is loaded & posh is all about $$$$. david seems muuuuuch more "down to earth" than his robo bride.

He is going to have a rough road if he buddies up to TinyTOM!! He needs to break free from the UFO crazy crowd and look for some A listers!!!

MBM Am I the only one who had heard him speak? It's sweet but a bit high pitched & soft.
Betty Betty 9 years
He didn't actually ACT in Bend it like Beckham... he just walked by... and it was far in the background... weren't even sure it was really him. He did have a short cameo in Goal! tho... but it was really short and he seemed a little stiff.
Imabeliever Imabeliever 9 years
Oh boy! Please let him have talent!! It would be nice to see him in a steamy sex scene or a great action sequence..but mmmmmmmmm I don't know! I just can't picture him having the acting chops to pull it off.
