Director Guy Ritchie has defended David Beckham's latest big screen outing, calling him a "fabulous actor". Speaking at the movie's premiere, Guy Ritchie insisted that Becks was "a talented actor".

David, 42, was joined on the red carpet by his 18-year-old son Brooklyn and said at the premiere: "The good thing about working with Guy is that he's a good friend of mine". He said: "It was lovely (working with Beckham), he did an awesome job".

Beckham, who also had a cameo in Ritchie's previous movie, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", said it was "nice to be involved" in the film. But once he pulls the Excalibur sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy.


"I flew myself to England and I basically showed up at his front door and said 'listen, we're going to talk about this because I think you might be making a bit of an error here'". Hunnam asks, to which he replies, "Bouncing on my knee".

Although star Charlie Hunnam jokingly expressed concern about having competition in the heart-throb stakes as he quipped: 'Listen pal this is my movie and I demand to be the most handsome man onscreen'.

"Not sure if Posh should dust off the Oscars dress just yet after seeing King Arthur trailer", teased Ossie Ikeogu.


Meanwhile, Charlie recently revealed he did one thousand push-ups a day in preparation for "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword".

Broadcaster Piers Morgan called his performance "Oscar-level excellent", going on to say "he could be the third Mitchell brother!"

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is released in United Kingdom cinemas May 19, previews May 17 & 18.
