David Beckham says he wore very tiny swimming trunks to woo Victoria Beckham

16 May 2014, 10:36

Los Angeles - David Beckham wore a pair of "really small" swimming trunks to impress Victoria Beckham.

The retired soccer superstar, who launched his new swimwear line in collaboration with H&M in London on Wednesday, admits that before he married the former Spice Girl he took her on holiday and donned a pair of tiny swimming shorts to try and woo her.

He said: "When I first started going out with Victoria and we went away for the first time I remember I took a pair of small, tight, dark blue Gucci trunks with me - I was obviously trying to impress her.

"They were really small, but they worked!"

David - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and two-year-old daughter Harper with Victoria - made a number of celebrity friends including Tom Cruise and Eva Longoria while living in the US when he played for Los Angeles Galaxy.

But when he came face-to-face with Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson while watching an LA Lakers basketball game he found himself lost for words.

Quizzed on whether he's ever felt star-struck, he told GQ magazine: "I think when I ran into Jack Nicholson in a toilet. We were at a Lakers game in the Staples Centre and he went to walk in the toilet as I was walking out. He turned to me and said, 'Alright David?' I was blown away by the fact he even knew who I was!"

We don't blame her!

We totally get it, right?
