There’s nothing like being complimented by a star…

After receiving some flack already for his role on the big screen – not least from frenemy Piers MorganDavid Beckham has finally been given the thumbs up on his acting skills for his short cameo in the new movie King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

The film, directed by his mate Guy Ritchie, was only a few seconds of footage, but Becks he still managed to pick up a fair dose of criticism.

But now star of the movie Charlie Hunnam has defended the football legend’s skills, saying David worked hard for the role, having even had training beforehand.

Charlie even suggested the 42-year-old was good enough to give acting a real go if he wanted.

Speaking to ITV on the red carpet for the premiere of the film, Charlie said: ‘He’d worked with an acting coach, he was only there as a friend of Guy’s but it became very clear how he’s enjoyed so much success in his life. He’s a perfectionist.

‘I was really impressed.’

Asked if he thought David could take things further, Charlie added: ‘He has the talent to back it up. He has the work ethic, the discipline to do it.’

His pal Guy added his thoughts on Becks’ acting career too: ‘He was fantastic, I love old Becksy.

‘He is a fabulous actor and a real pleasure to be with.’

David is pretty proud of the role, and took to Instagram to give fans a look at what went on behind the scenes to transform him into the gruesome Trigger.  A lot of make up and some dodgy teeth, by the looks of things.

He wrote: ‘It was a pleasure to work with the @kingarthurmovie team on such an amazing film #KingArthur.’

Hunnam stars as King Arthur with Jude Law, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, and Eric Bana co-starring.

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword hits cinemas worldwide on May 12 2017.
