David Beckham For GQ UK December 2008

For the first time since 2002, and 20 years after he signed for Manchester United, David Beckham is gracing the cover of GQ to celebrate the magazine’s 20th anniversary.

Over 12 pages, the LA Galaxy star, discusses everything from Tom Cruise to religious tattoos: “All my tattoos have a religious theme,” he says.

“I’m not too religious. But I believe there is something out there that looks after you.”

Here are some highlights:

David on whether he hopes to develop a film career: "What film career? I haven’t got one. Never say never, except about that! And that’s the way it’s going to stay."

David on mingling with famous friends like Tom Cruise: "He came round for dinner a few weeks ago. But it’s the same with him. We just go round and watch a film. It’s not a big deal, it’s just popping round to watch a film or to mess around and play with the kids."

David on claims that Tom has tried to convert him or his wife Victoria to Scientology: "I respect any person’s religion. Everybody’s got their own ideas. And, of course, Tom is a big believer in Scientology, but he’s never pushed anything on to us about it and he never will do. Friends don’t do that."

David on America: "We’re happy here at the moment, that’s the biggest thing. When your family are happy, that’s all you can ask for."

The full interview and pictures by photographer Peter Lindbergh will be in the December issue of GQ UK, out this Thursday.

"...and 20 years after he signed for Manchester United..."

what are you talking about Electra?

He signed for Man U when he was 13 or 14, so do the maths.
