Becks to teach Will Smith how to play soccerJune 19th, 2008 - 5:32 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 19 (ANI): After mastering acting, Will Smith has his eyes set on football and in a bid to learn the sport the actor has got a coach for himself - soccer ace David Beckham.
While in London to promote his new film Hancock, the Hollywood star said that he begged the England football star to coach him.
“David Beckham is one of the best ’soccer’ players in the world. I begged him to teach me how to play and he promises he will. We can’t wait! the Telegraph quoted him, as saying.
In Hancock, Smith plays the title character, a bungling super-hero who manages to wreak havoc during his well-meaning attempts to save lives.
Hancock begins to care about other people’s opinions only after he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey, played by Jason Bateman, whose wife is played by Charlize Theron. (ANI)
