Beckham film role a tearjerker
David Beckham has said he expects his mother to cry when she watches a film about his time at Manchester United.
The former England captain contributed to a feature-length documentary which focuses on the Old Trafford side's youth players from 1992.
The film examines the difficult period in Beckham's life after he was sent off at the 1998 World Cup.
Speaking at the premiere of The Class of 92 at London's Leicester Square, he said: "There will be a few tears in there from my mum I'm sure."
Beckham attended the event with his wife, Victoria, and their three sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
The documentary covers the period from 1992 to 1999 when Beckham and his team-mates Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Phil and Gary Neville rose up through the squad to achieve top level success.
He explained how much he valued the support of his fellow players when he faced tough periods in his career.
"I think that is part of history," the 38-year-old said. "It's the same for all of us six. There were good times, there were bad times, there were troubled times where we all stuck together.
"But that is part of the movie, part of the history of the six of us. That is why it makes this such a great story."
The father-of-four looked comfortable on the red carpet but claimed he did not expect to develop a career as a movie star.
"I'm not very good at acting, so maybe it wouldn't be a very good idea to go into that kind of industry," he admitted.
"But I enjoyed doing this. It's obviously something that I know, something that is part of our teenage years (and) very special."
One Direction star Harry Styles also attended the premiere to support Beckham, who he described as "everyone's idol".
When asked about reports that Beckham could become Sir David in the New Year Honours List, Styles replied: "Why not? He's a national treasure isn't he? It makes sense. I thought he was already."
