“I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting and failed,” Beckham was quoted as saying by The Times.


“I know that it is a tough profession, where you need a huge amount of skill and discipline, and I wouldn’t want to push myself forward too soon, without learning more about it, and doing a lot more practice.

“But what I have done so far, I have loved. I can deal with most things. I am a well-known person, so I have got used to criticism,” he added.

He praised filmmaker Guy Ritchie, who gave him a cameo role on “Knights of the Roundtable”, which is due out next year.
