Adidas Originals fan David Beckham is being encouraged by his wife Victoria to become an actor, according to a magazine.

The footballer - who has enjoyed a taste of the camera in the latest Adidas Originals advert - is thought to want another child, but his wife wants no distractions from her successful fashion career, Now magazine reported.

"She's been urging David to try his hand at acting and has told friends she'd take such pride in him becoming successful in Hollywood," a source told the publication.

"David's been getting help from his friends Tom Cruise and Vinnie Jones," they added.

With his current Achilles tendon injury, he could have plenty of time to refine his acting ability.

In the Adidas Originals advert, Beckham is seen taking photographs as a host of stars including Liam Gallagher and N-Dubz entertain revellers.

Also included in the promotion are model Agyness Deyn and former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown.
