David Beckham: Tom Cruise Shoved Nothing Down My Throat


This month, British men's style magazine ARENA is having a relaunch, with L.A. Galaxy's sometime player David Beckham on its cover. In the issue, Beckham discusses life in Hollywood, as well as his close friendship with TomKat:

Becks2"We respect their religion. We respect everything they do and believe in. But they have never turned around to us and said, 'You have to be a part of this', because that's not what they're about. It's never been about that. There's been nothing shoved down our throats because friends don't do things like that. They are amazing people who are just so positive about life and they have been great to us."

Beckham recently announced that he would make his final appearance for the Galaxy this season in a charity match that would pit the Galaxy against "Hollywood United FC" to raise money for the Red Cross and Salvation Army to help wildfire victims.

According to the AP: "The Hollywood lineup is expected to include actors Anthony LaPaglia, Jimmy Jean-Louis and Costas Mandylor; musicians Steve Jones and Vivian Campbell; and former World Cup players Frank Leboeuf, Richard Gough, Joe-Max Moore and Eric Wynalda. Former Galaxy standouts Lalas and Mauricio Cienfuegos also are set to play."

If Beckham is such good friends with TomKat, why aren't they playing, along with Posh, Marc Anthony, and J Lo? Why not throw a few more paparazzi nutjobs in there as well? Now that would really raise some cash.

  1. Oh Andy, don't tease me with that headline. There is something rough trade look about him, unless he opens his mouth.

  2. What's really sad is that Becks will probably get injured in a charity match against celebrities.

  3. Bloggers galore (and the not-so-mainstream press) have been trying to stuff this quasi-talented footballer and his creepshow wife (herself begat from the ghastly Spice Girls) down our throats for the past few years and no one's really buying into it…are they? Sure, he's cute, but no cuter or hotter than most guys in Chelsea (or interns here at MTV). If I never have to look at or hear about this schmo again it will be too soon.
    And, hell HAS its demons on earth now that the Spice Girls have reunited for a TOUR! A TOUR! Has the whole world gone mad that there's excitement for this bile?

    Maybe I should have my morning coffee….

  4. I assume that JeffreyChrist is in the New York office of MTV, cos I'm currently in the London office and the interns here are nothing particularly special (though one of the legal team is outrageously hot, but that's another story...)
    Haven't you Americans realised that Thick and Thin (ie Dave and Vicky) are diversionary tactics employed by corrupt governments to draw attention away from genuine news stories? The British public got wise, hence the Beckhams' redeployment in the US...

  5. Thanks, Jeffrey --- I've been thinking the same thing. It's hype all the way. And, what's with the tat's? If one is sexy, fifty are somehow sexier? Scary --- a real turn-off.

    And, come on! The wife is an anorectic has been. If this is celebrity, it speaks volumes about where we've arrived (and where we're heading).

    Who's fostering all their exaggerated PR? I don't get it.

  6. Ugghh...Celebrities...I'm worried about our youth!

  7. David Beckham is HOT, charitable and one of the most talented athletes to play the sport...did I mention he's HOT?

  8. I think we all know what Tom would like to shove down David's throat.

    David does look better rougher, although I agree he has way too many tattoos. He should have stopped a long time ago. People just don't know when to stop with that. Why ruin such a beautiful guy with so many permanent mistakes?

  9. I think David's missing the point. Of course Tom isn't going to start talking Scientology right off the bat. He'll make friends first (as David has already said), show them how great their life is, how well they cope with the media and being an uber-famous couple--then that's when the S word will come up.

    Tom Cruise doesn't go out and make friends with the biggest star in soccer just to be nice.

    Now look at me all cynical. And I've only lived in LA a year...

  10. Yawn.

    XENU see's all. XENU see's Tommy's legs wrapped around David's waist. A few months later, And, through "Advanced Technology" XENU foresee's a new 'essence' on planet earth...it is to be named TODA in honor of TOm & DAvid. TODA will grow up to rule planet earth. TODA is not to be confused with TOTO, a dog of much theatrical success. TODA will become the newest member of the ARC and KRC triangles. Once this has occured, TODA will have crossed "The Bridge to Total Freedom," and will rule all the galaxies eternally.

  12. Beckham is too in love with his own crotch to spring it on the positive crowd.
