AceShowbiz - Retired soccer star David Beckham has set his eyes on a career in film. Speaking of his passion for acting, he said in an interview with The Times he is ready to learn more about it while at the same time also ready to receive "criticism" for his first roles.
"I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting and failed," Beckham said in a statement. "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," added the father of four to The Times. The 40-year-old hunk went on recalling rehearsing for an hour each day for his speaking role in Guy Ritchie's film "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur", due out next year. He said taking part in the upcoming project was "nerve-racking," but it "went really well."
