David Beckham fan moment with Tom Hanks
Former soccer star David Beckham has revealed he had to pinch himself when he first met Tom Hanks, President Barack Obama and Queen Elizabeth at a charity dinner.
The 40-year-old retired football superstar may have an impressive sporting careers under his belt and an army of fans to boot but he has admitted he still gets riddled with nerves when he meets famous people, reported Femalefirst.
“What makes me nervous? I mean when I meet certain people, I’m very lucky to have met the people that I’ve met over the years. One of the greatest dinners that I’d ever been to was at the Ambassador’s residence, I was on my own and I’d been asked to this amazing dinner.
“So, there were three tables of ten and no one was giving you a table plan so I went to stand at my table and Tom Hanks is next to me on the left and then I look over and the President, he’s sat there, and then next to the President was the Queen. So I had to pinch myself at that dinner!”
