Victoria Beckham’s despair over Hollywood David

She's not exactly thrilled about his budding acting career

David and Victoria Beckham

They outdid themselves with family celebrations over the holidays, packing in a merry Christmas in the Cotswolds, a double-whammy christening and a lavish vacay in Morocco.

But despite her best efforts, Victoria Beckham just couldn’t escape the fact that 2020 was always going to be tricky, with husband David, 44, set to spend an increasing amount of time in Miami overseeing his football team, while she focuses on ensuring her UK-based fashion brand doesn’t suffer any more financial losses.

But Posh’s fears don’t stop there – not since Hollywood’s been calling.

According to sources, David’s fledgling TV and film career has sent Victoria’s insecurities into overdrive, and now that he’s keen to flex his (questionable) acting chops more and more, the distance between them is getting bigger.

“David is currently in talks to film an advert for a fashion brand with [model and actress] Emily Ratajkowski, and he’s also been contacted by casting directors who want him to appear in several TV shows,” says a source close to the couple, who are parents to Brooklyn, 20, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 14, and eight-year-old Harper.

“The directors aren’t too bothered about his abilities, they just want him to stand there and look nice. He’s obviously thrilled, and it’s a massive ego boost for him."

"He’s not shy, and he’s saying, ‘Bring it on,’ when it comes to filming more Hollywood cameos.”

Anyone who’s seen King Arthur will know that David’s not exactly a natural performer, but that hasn’t stopped him racking up the acting gigs – last week, US fans got to see his rather awkward guest appearance in Modern Family alongside Courteney Cox. But while the former footballer is keen to make a bigger name for himself in Hollywood, we’re told that Victoria, 45, is beside herself at the idea.

Apparently, she’s always felt inferior to her husband when it comes to her looks, and given that so much of her self-esteem is wrapped up in her fashion brand, the company’s recent reported losses of £12m have only added to her low self-worth.

“Vic’s the first to admit that she has insecurities about her looks – she doesn’t consider herself to be a natural beauty,” we’re told. “It’s difficult for her to see her husband being celebrated as one of the hottest men on the planet and being offered Hollywood roles because of it.

"Many women dream about being married to David Beckham, but for someone with Vic’s low self-esteem, it can also be a nightmare.”

On the plus side, Posh, your husband’s acting skills have been universally panned. We’ve seen Spice World, we know who the real Oscar-worthy actor in the family is.
