Tom Cruise's representative has laughed off reports the actor is planning to hand David Beckham a cameo in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 4, insisting his comments have been "blown out of proportion".
The Top Gun actor recently praised his soccer star pal and admitted he's been "encouraging him to become an actor" because of his Hollywood looks.
Subsequent reports claimed Cruise is lining up a small role in the action franchise for Beckham.
But Cruise's spokesperson has rubbished the speculation, telling GossipCop.com, "This is blown out of proportion. He was asked a simple question on (a press) tour about if he thinks David would be a good actor and he said yes... Then it ran into the ether in a crazy way that doesn't (represent) what he said."
