Washington, October 28 : David Beckham says that he'd rather be running on the field practising his footwork than turning to the big screen.
Asked whether the midfielder would ever take up acting, he said that that his being away from the frame was one thing that would never change.
"What film career? I haven't got one," People magazine quoted him as telling the December issue of British GQ.
"Never say never, except about that! And that's the way it's going to stay," he added.
However, the 33-year-old Brit admitted that there was one part he preferred about Hollywood - hanging out with buddy Tom Cruise.
He said: "We just go round and watch a film. It's not a big deal, it's just popping round to watch a film or to mess around and play with the kids."
