Beckham Defends Cruise Friendship
Victoria Beckham has chastised critics who have accused her of only forging a close friendship with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to further her acting career.
The former Spice Girl became firm friends with the Cruise family when she and her soccer ace husband David moved to Los Angeles in July 2007.
Since the Hollywood move, the Wannabe hitmaker has made a transition to the small screen, making a number of guest appearances - most notably on hit comedy Ugly Betty.
But Beckham insists she is not interested in a Hollywood acting career because she is well aware of her lack of skills in front of the camera - and has snubbed several film roles as a result.
She says, "I'm happy doing what I'm doing right now. I'm a terrible actress. Everyone thinks I'm only friends with Tom and Katie to be in a movie but it's not true. I've turned down lots of roles."
