Knights to see you! Charlie Hunnam greets David Beckham at King Arthur premiere
HE famously fancied a knighthood earlier this year… and David Beckham certainly had a taste of it when King Arthur himself bowed down to him at a film premiere last night.
Actor Charlie Hunnam, who plays the legendary king, greeted Becks on the red carpet at the London opening of their film King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword. In it, the retired England captain plays a cockney knight called Trigger.
However, fans are less than en-armoured with the 42-year-old’s cameo after viewing his attempts at acting in the trailer.
One, Craig Kent, commented: ‘Just watched the Beckham clip in King Arthur. Literally had to cover my eyes was so cringe,’ while Ossie Ikeogu added: ‘Not sure if Posh should dust off the Oscars dress just yet after seeing King Arthur trailer.’
Hopefully 37-year-old Hunnam and model Poppy Delevingne, 31, who plays his mother Igraine, fare better in the movie, directed by Guy Ritchie, 48.
Ritchie’s 16-year-old son Rocco and Becks’ lad Brooklyn, 18, were also at the Leicester Square premiere, alongside Game Of Thrones star Aidan Gillen, 49.
