Armani frontman David Beckham is being lined up to appear in a new ad campaign with the fashion house’s new spokesmodel, Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie. The 34-year-old soccer star has already shot ads for the designer brand with his wife Victoria, 35, and now we hear Armani bosses are hoping Becks will show off his famous pecks alongside Hollywood’s hottest mom.
“When you have David Beckham and Angelina Jolie signed up to your fashion house, it’s a no-brainer to link them up,” a source spills PopLife.com. “The two are exceptionally beautiful on camera, but both committed to long-term partners so the ad would have to be sexy without offending their other halves.”
“They appeal to a diverse audience, and a collaboration would create so much publicity, it would push Armani head and shoulders above their rivals,” the insider added. “There are a few contract issues to be addressed, but marketing experts are being tasked with coming up with clever ideas for a print campaign.”
t seems that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have a power couple they look up to. They adore the Beckhams.
Efron explained how he “loves” the soccer celeb’s fashion sense. But when it comes to being compared to the couple with girlfriend Hudgens, he finds it silly.
The “17 Again” star says, “Vanessa and I would love to be like the US David and Victoria Beckham. It’s funny when we’re compared to them, I just can’t believe it. I totally love the way David dresses.”
And when it comes to the 21-year-old’s work, he’s still going strong. Efron is starring in the upcoming film, “The Death & Life of Charlie St Cloud.” The movie is about a cemetery caretaker who is able to talk with his dead younger brother.
About the film, Efron says, “It sounds very grim, but it’s a fantastic story. It’s a little bit more grown-up. It deals with some heavy material.”
According to People, the LA Galaxy and England footballer is the “surprise finale” at the showcase event.
Beckham’s cameo marks the transfer of the Summer Olympics from Beijing to London.
“They always have a segment to do the handover, to showcase the next city to host the Olympics,” said a source.
“[David Beckham] was very involved in the London bid to get it, and as a Londoner he is incredibly proud that the Olympics will be in London.
“He is passionate about it and looking forward to the games in 2012.”
Leona Lewis is also expected to perform at the event.
The film stars teen porn star Sasha Grey, David explains:
“What happens is, the film breaks fantasy and goes back into reality and you’re actually on the set, so my interaction is mainly me giving Sasha direction. If anything, there’s definitely an artistic flair and sensibility throughout the picture that might at times appear self-indulgent – I hope so!
