Retired soccer ace David Beckham says he has no plans to get into acting. Cantona, who played alongside Beckham at British soccer team Manchester United, carved out a successful movie career in his native France after giving up the game, but David insists his performing skills do not match up to his talents on the pitch.
“I am not very good at it (acting). On occasion I tried things, like the adverts I did with Adidas. Eric is great at it, I couldn’t be as natural at it as he is,” said David. However, he would be happy for a real Hollywood star to play him on the big screen.
”I think Brad (Pitt) would be the obvious choice. 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,” he said.
