Becks shows Scientology some rispek

But Tom doesn't proselytise, insists Goldenballs

David Beckham has admitted that while he respects the Scientological beliefs of new chums Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, they have not attempted to convert him and missus Posh to the word of L Ron Hubbard.

That's according to an interview in the December issue of Arena, in which Goldenballs explains: "We respect their religion. We respect everything they do and believe in. But they have never turned around to us and said, 'You have to be a part of this', because that's not what they're about. It's never been about that."

Becks adds: "There's been nothing shoved down our throats because friends don't do things like that. They are amazing people who are just so positive about life and they have been great to us."

The LA Galaxy galactico also enthuses about his new-found pal Mark Anthony, other half of world Latina superpower Jennifer Lopez, offering: "We talk about all sorts. What's happening that week, that day. What Jennifer's up to, what Victoria's up to. I speak to him at least three or four times a week."

Yup, it's how the other half lives, and no messing. ®
