Becks: "Why I Played Prince"
It's the stuff fairytales are made of - David Beckham as a knight in shining armour
David Beckham has announced he loved dressing up as Sleeping Beauty's prince for a new Disney campaign as he's nothing but a "big kid".
David donned a cape and rode a white stallion to play the knight in shining armour for an amazing set of pics by repsected photographer Annie Lebovitz for Disney World's Year Of A Million Dreams.
"I'm the Prince and I'm sort of slaying a dragon, which is something I've never done before, obviously," he said. "And it's a very exciting project."
This is Becks's first official US endorsement since signing up for US footy team LA Galaxy and he's in good company - Beyonce has been snapped up to star as Alice In Wonderland while Justin Timberlake's mate Scarlett Johansson plays Cinderella in another shoot.
"When I was called about it and asked to do it, I was very honoured and really looking forward to it, especially with Annie doing the pictures," Becks gushed.
"She always takes great pictures of everybody and she's always taken great pictures of me. I think it's a great project."
He added, "I'm like a big kid, I'm more of a kid than one of my sons, you know, I love going to theme parks when we can and it's great to do that."
Meanwhile Becks impressed with his acting talent. "Saving Sleeping Beauty came natural to him," said Lebowitz. "He's a determined actor, and he became the Prince when he got on that white horse. He was serious about it. He is a very masculine hero."
Lebovitz will be casting more stars as Disney characters in the 15-month campaign - we reckon Victoria would look great with a tale, so maybe she could join Becks as the Little Mermaid?
