Brad Pitt: "I Want David Beckham to Teach My Kids Soccer"
Brad Pitt wants David Beckham to teach his kids soccer. The 49-year-old actor wants the now-retired sportsman to give his six children with Angelina Jolie - Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - personal lessons on the ball game.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the world premiere of his new film World War Z in London's Leicester Square yesterday (2 June), Brad said: "I want him to teach my kids soccer."
The 49-year-old heart-throb also believes that Becks could make it in Hollywood if he decides to pursue an acting career, adding, "I think he's got what it takes."
Now that 38-year-old David's soccer career is over he has been tipped for movie stardom by Oscar-winning Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
The movie mogul said: "I have only met David a few times but each time I find his talents more and more impressive. I am a real fan. I think he could do anything he wants in TV and film."
Meanwhile, Brad - who was joined at the premiere by Angelina, 37, in her first red carpet appearance since announcing her double mastectomy - was praised for his strong work ethic and humble attitude by co-star Mireille Enos, who plays his wife in the post-apocalyptic zombie thriller.
She said: "He's a wonderful guy. So down to earth. He's such a hard worker. He's just great."
