AceShowbiz - %cDavid Beckham% personally talked about the reports that he would be the next James Bond. The former soccer ace said he found the rumor funny, setting the record straight that he was "definitely" not planning to be an 007 agent.
"I saw that the other day and I laughed many times about it," Beckham told ABC News on Thursday, September 17. "Definitely won't be in the next James Bond," he added. In fact, he didn't plan to make acting his new career and admitted to only "stepping into" acting.
"I've never, ever thought about going into any kind of acting," Beckham said. "People have actually started talking about me and my new career of acting, which it's not my new career of acting, it's just something that I'm kind of stepping into and enjoying myself with."
It was fans' effort that pushed Beckham's name to be considered as the next James Bond as %cDaniel Craig%'s contract approached its expiration date. Last week, his representative quickly said Beckham "was not planning to step into the action heroes shoes any time soon, despite recently expressing his interest in acting."
