Victoria Beckham has revealed she works because she feels the need to, not because she has to.
The star, who balances occasional Spice Girls duties with her career as a designer and being a mum of four, revealed in a new interview that she works hard because she has something to prove to herself.
She told Elle magazine: "I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I don't have to work, I need to work.
"All these people [fellow fashion designers], they've not just been given anything. They've worked hard. And I've never been given anything either."
Victoria said she and footballer husband David Beckham both have a good attitude to work.
"I have a good work ethic; David has an incredible work ethic. I want my kids to have a good work ethic," she said. 'I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it."
The 38-year-old also hinted that she has always questioned her popularity.
She said: "When I was on stage with the Spice Girls, I thought people were there to see the other four and not me. And when I go out with David and people take pictures I think, 'They're here to take David's picture'."
