David Beckham: Brad Pitt should play me in a movie


David Beckham is man enough to say when another guy is good looking.

The 38-year-old soccer star — who may be a Miami fixture soon — was asked by UK’s Talksport Radio who should play him on the big screen, and gave the obvious answer: Brad Pitt. Yup, we can see the resemblance.

Anyone younger? Pitt turns 50 next month, after all. Becks added that Leonardo DiCaprio would also do. “Or Bradley Cooper. They’re not bad looking guys.”

Beckham — rumored to be thinking of an expansion franchise, with a stadium envisioned on one end of PortMiami — also joked that wife Victoria is “waiting for me to get a couple of tires around my waist but right now it’s not happening, thankfully.”

The couple appears on this month’s Paris Vogue cover in a sexy, almost kissing pose. The former Spice Girl, 39, guest edited the fashion magazine as well, saying despite “ups and downs,” their marriage is solid.

Family way

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada mentioned she had babies on the brain recently, and now there’s one in her womb.

“I’m so thankful for so many things! How much greatness has happened in a year! I’m sooooooo damn HAPPY!!! Yipeeeeeee!!!,” the part time Miami resident tweeted to her 1 million followers on Thanksgiving.

TMZ first reported the reality star was six months pregnant. The father to be is most definitely not ex-husband/ex Miami Dolphin Chad Johnson.. So who is it? Lozada, who has a 20-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, hasn’t said, but she was recently linked to L.A. Dodger outfielder Carl Crawford.

Fraud trial

An accountant for celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and her ex-husband Charles Saatchi has told a fraud trial that two of their personal assistants spent on average 76,000 pounds ($124,000) a month using the couple’s credit cards. The assistants, Italian sisters Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, are accused of spending the couple’s money on hundreds of thousands of pounds’ worth of luxury clothing, handbags, first-class travel and hotel stays. The sisters deny the charges.

Earlier, a judge read an email from Saatchi in which he alleged that Lawson abused drugs extensively and allowed their staff to spend as long as they covered up her drug use.

Something new

Getting workout tips, are we, Ryan Seacrest? The American Idol judge and media prince, 38, was spotted out and about in Uruguay with personal trainer Shayna Terese Taylor. Believe it or not, she’s the same age as Seacrest. And yes, she bears a resemblance to his ex, Julianne Hough.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.
