David Beckham's 'Acting Career' Will Be Short Lived If His Kids Get Their Way

David Beckham was rumoured to be making a dramatic career change earlier this month, swapping all things sport for the world of acting.

The dad-of-four admitted that although he is "definitely not" going to become a full-time actor, he did enjoy the challenge of having a cameo appearance in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur and a part in Belstaff's Outlaws movie.

But if Beckham's kids have anything to say about it, his acting career won't go very far.


When asked what his children think about their dad acting, Beckham told Grazia "They prefer seeing me on the football pitch!

"But they have enjoyed certain things that I've done over the years. I've done a campaign with Kevin Hart and that's one of the best ones I've done, so the kids are excited about things like that."

As for Beckham's point of view, it seems as if the acting will be short-lived.

He added, when speaking to the Times: "I enjoyed slipping into that role... but I enjoyed slipping back out of it even more.

"I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting – and failed."
