David Beckham Still Not Used to Seeing His Underwear Billboards

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Editorials, Models

David BeckhamDavid Beckham's mum calls him up when she sees billboards of him in his underwear.

The retired soccer star - who recently launched a new swimwear range for H&M - still isn't used to seeing himself fronting brand campaigns in next to nothing and neither is his mother, Sandra.

When asked about whether he gets used to seeing himself on giant billboards, he told ShortList magazine, "I don't think so. Especially not when I've got my mum calling me up saying, 'I've just seen another huge billboard of you in London - just you, in your underwear.'"

Although at first David - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two, with wife Victoria - was embarrassed by the prospect of allowing the world to see him half-naked, he has grown used to it, but he was left red faced in New Jersey during the Super Bowl where there were millions of posters of himself all over the city: "But it is what it is. At first I was like, 'Oh my God I'm sat there in my underwear and everyone around the world can see it.' This year at the Super Bowl it was ridiculous. I've never seen so many billboards of myself in one city. Every corner I turned, every street, I was there, so it was verging on embarrassing after a while."

Mark Wahlberg and Kate Moss for Calvin Klein

David Beckham to Design Long Johns

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is taking a design cue from his wife Victoria -- sort of. Beckham is set to launch a line of... long johns!

The soccer heartthrob - who signed a deal to create his own collection of underwear earlier this year after starring in an advertising campaign for Emporio Armani men's briefs - wants to give the old fashioned items a makeover when he launches the range in February 2012.

"I sometimes wear them to go to sleep. They're very cool."

David - who is currently playing for Los Angeles Galaxy - is reportedly being backed in his plans by his manager Simon Fuller and fashion designer Stella McCartney's husband Alasdhair Willis.

He also wants Victoria to be heavily involved in the project: "The underwear is totally my design, things that I like to wear."

The “Bad Romance” singer very much adhered to her pantsless trend last night, stepping out wearing nothing but her undergarments and fishnet hosiery beneath a see-through Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit in London!

I guess she’s just too cool to be seen wearing that spiked leather jacket in her arm… Is this going beyond her couture antics?
