'Tom Cruise Has Not Tried To Convert Us To Scientology' Says David Beckham

In Arena Magazine David Beckham opened up about his new life in Los Angeles and his friendship with devout Scientologist Tom Cruise.

David has forged a close bond with the actor in recent years, insists that neither Tom nor wife Katie Holmes have attempted to convert the Beckhams to Scientology.

David said: "We respect their religion. We respect everything they do and believe in."

"But they have never turned around to us and said, 'You have to be a part of this', because that's not what they're about. It's never been about that."

"There's been nothing shoved down our throats because friends don't do things like that."

Tom and wife Katie Holmes welcomed David and Victoria to LA with a huge star-studded party in July, and have continued to help them settle into their new life.

David told Arena: "They are amazing people who are just so positive about life and they have been great to us."

David also has another close Hollywood confidant - Jennifer Lopez's singer husband, Mark Anthony.

David revealed: "We talk about all sorts. What's happening that week, that day. What Jennifer's up to, what Victoria's up to. I speak to him at least three or four times a week."

Despite reports both David and Victoria are homesick after struggling to crack the US, he says the family is making LA home.

He said: "Victoria has done an amazing job on the house. She made sure the kids got into the right schools. It was a big move for them coming without their friends, their nans and granddads. But they love it. They say 'awesome' a lot."

Beckham also discussed how he keeps the fire alive in his marriage.

He said: "We do romantic things every day - write notes, make breakfast for each other. Something will happen every day that is romantic."

"Some people will be going 'yuck' at all this...We were lucky to have wanted the same things in life - to have kids young and be adventurous."

In other news it has been reported that Katie Holmes has cooled her relationship with Victoria Beckham because at the Welcome to LA Party, apparently Katie saw Victoria and Eva Longoria making fun of Tom's dance moves.

All very high school if you ask me.

Indeed he is and wish these interviewer's would stop pestering him about his friend's beliefs cus it's really getting on my last nerve's that his friend can't come into contact with anyone anymore without them getting asked that pathetic question these interviewer's really need to knock it off already seriously. Anyways nice to hear david is going to play for a good cause. :)
