Comedian was bowled over by Becks' good looks

Russell Brand admits he felt a bit of a tingle when he met David Beckham.

The comedian is a big footall fan, so he was delighted when introduced to the soccer star. 

‘I once met David Beckham in LA and it was lovely!’ says Russell, 34.

‘I was a little bit starstruck.’

Russell couldn’t get over David‘s good looks during their meeting. 

‘I think he is just really handsome,’ he adds. ‘So handsome. I was like, “Oh, oh, hello…”‘ 

Russell got engaged to Katy Perry, 25, in India on New Year’s Eve.
