David Beckham's children won't be rushing to buy cinema tickets to watch their dad on the big screen.

(Cover) - EN Showbiz - David Beckham thinks his children would rather watch him on a football field than a movie screen.

Earlier this year (15) it was reported the sportsman was launching a career in acting, kicking off with a part in short film Outlaws for fashion label Belstaff and a cameo in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur.

But he's since denied that's the case, now explaining his four kids - Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, ten, and Harper, four - wouldn't fancy buying cinema tickets to watch their father.

"My children would much rather watch me on the football pitch!" he laughed to Germany's Grazia magazine.

The hunky star’s wife Victoria was impressed by his acting credentials however, so at least he has some support from the family. But even working with someone as famous as Harvey Keitel on Outlaws wasn't enough to sway David into making a go of it in Hollywood.

"I enjoyed slipping into that role... but I enjoyed slipping back out of it even more!" he joked, adding he was nervous about working with Oscar-nominee Harvey.

Maybe it was the pressure that put him off pursuing a silver-screen career full time.

“I am very aware that many sportsmen and other celebrities have turned their hand to acting – and failed,” he previously told Britain's The Times newspaper. “I know it is a tough profession, where you need a huge amount of skill and discipline. I wouldn’t want to push myself forward too soon, without learning more about it, and doing a lot more practice.”

Instead, David has been focusing on other ventures. On Tuesday (29Sep15) he headed to Dubai, where he opened the Adidas HomeCourt concept store in the Mall of Emirates to a mob of excited fans.
