David Beckham is losing more than his bathrobe in Guy Ritchie's film promoting Beckham's bodywear line for H&M.
"David is the perfect leading man," Ritchie said. "For me, this felt like more than a campaign — it was like directing a short film."
"I loved doing it and people will get to see me play a role I've never done before!" the soccer star told the New York Daily News. "it was great to work with Guy, who is an amazing director."
Beckham, 37, who will be leaving Los Angeles to play for the Paris-St. Germain club for free, isn't saying au revoir to sunny Southern California just yet. The short opens with him seeing his family off on their driveway but as they drive off, his bathrobe gets caught on the car, leaving him standing in just — OH NO! — an undershirt, his army-green skivvies and totally adorable bedroom slippers.
