David Beckham: I was amazed when Jack Nicholson knew my name
He may be a household name worldwide, but David Beckham, 37, still gets starstruck when out in LA.
The LA Galaxy star bumped into actor Jack Nicholson at a basketball game and was thrilled when the Hollywood legend recognised him.
'There was one time when I was at the LA Lakers. I was waiting for the toilet and someone was in there,' recalls David.
'The door opened and Jack Nicholson came out and he said, "It's all yours, David."
'I was amazed to see Jack and then, obviously, I was amazed he knew my name.'
David, who lives in LA with wife Victoria Beckham, 38, sons Brooklyn Beckham, 13, Romeo Beckham, 9, Cruz Beckham, 7, and daughter Harper Beckham, 1, remains humble over his success.
'We've lived a pretty normal life,' he tells The Sun, 'living in California is something special and something we have enjoyed over these last few years.
'There have been moments when we have sat back - as a family - and talked about how lucky we are.'
