David Beckham would like Brad Pitt to play him in a film

by Emmy Griffiths Published on 29 November 2013

We’ve noticed that David Beckham and Brad Pitt are very similar in many ways – they are both ruggedly good looking, have famous spouses, a big brood of offspring and very successful careers. Their similarities haven’t escaped David, who has said he thinks Brad would be the perfect person to play him in a film – although a couple of other famous, very handsome A-list names were thrown out there as well. Oh David, you’re so cheeky!

David Beckham has said that he’d like Brad Pitt to play him in a film of his life. Can we all take a moment to marvel at how amazing this would be?!

The 38-year-old, who has recently actually starred in a sexy short biker film for British heritage brand Belstaff, joked about the movie star playing him in a biopic of his life whilst on talkSport Radio.

He said: “I think Brad would be the obvious choice.”

Can anyone else picture Brad Pitt with long hair pushed back by a hairband?

Who do we have in mind to play Victoria? Maybe Angelina Jolie will step up!

David Beckham is happy to have any fabulously good looking A-lister portray him though really, and he brought up a few other names. He said: “I’d like Brad to be playing me – him or Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the two. Or Bradley Cooper. They’re not bad looking guys.”

The footballer also spoke about his recent retirement from football, saying: “My career was pretty successful over the last 20 years and to be able to finish my career at PSG with a trophy, and then walk away from football, was very special.

“It’s never easy retiring and it’s not easy to walk away from something that you love but there were a lot of things I had ready to go the minute I stopped playing, that was important.

"I’ve got a big family, four kids to chase around, that keeps you busy enough. I’ve not really had the chance to sit down and miss playing the role.”

Becks also joked about Victoria’s concern that he’s going to start getting slightly podgy!

He said: “I think Victoria is waiting for me to get a couple of tyres around my waist but right now it’s not happening, thankfully!”

You make sure it doesn’t Becks. The women of Britain will never forgive you!
