"I’m good friends with Guy and trust him. He wouldn’t put me in a film if he thought I was going to ruin it. I had 13 lines and I practised a huge amount beforehand. Guy had someone come and rehearse with me and I did an hour of it every day. It was nerve-racking delivering the lines but I enjoyed it massively. Sport gets my heart beating faster. Acting is the same," said Beckham.

Say yes Beckham. Your fans are already waiting to hear you say

"The name is Bond. James Bond."
