The friends lived close to each other

David Beckham has revealed how he used to get a cheeky sneak preview of Tom Cruise‘s movies.

The ex-footballer got to know Tom, 51, during his time in the States and would regularly go round to his house to watch the actor’s films before they came out.

When we were living in LA, Tom Cruise lived two minutes away. He’s a good friend,’ says David, 38.

There were occasions when I’d call him up and ask him if he had a new movie that wasn’t out yet, and I’d go round and watch it with him.’

But David admits that he wouldn’t behave the same way with other famous people he knows.

I’ve met the prime minister quite a few times, too,’ the dad-of-four tells The Sunday Times Magazine.

He’s a really nice guy, but I’m not sure I could go and invite myself to No 10 in the same way.’
