Hunnam Compliments Beckham's Performance In King Arthur

When asked if a Hollywood career beckoned for the former footballer, Ritchie replied diplomatically: "I don't know yet, one step at a time".

"I love him, he's on the same frequency as me and it made sense for him to be in the film".

"I knew that there were going to be some really, really long days and I've been on sets doing physical stuff before and know how gruelling it is and was able to predict what that was gonna require of me", Charlie Hunnam explained.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is the latest cinematic adaption of the Arthurian legend with Charlie Hunnam in the leading role. "He is a fabulous actor and a real pleasure to be with".

But at the movie's premiere in London, the British movie-maker was keen to back the sports star, who worked with an acting coach for the role.

"He is very quiet and humble and serious". "Where do you want me?" "Hands on the hill, stupid".

His acting talent was even compared to that of the stone at the centre of the film.

"It's a misguided, fist-biter of a performance", Empire said.

In footage aired on Good Morning Britain on Thursday, Guy admitted his kids had no idea who Becks was - but added: I think he's a very talented actor, he's confident on camera.

Ritchie had big success with his Sherlock Holmes movies at the box office, but struggled a little when it came to The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

But in that film he spoke just two words, "Apologies, comrade", and those were subtitled and spoken in Russian.

Becks fans will have the chance to see his acting debut for themselves when King Arthur opens in cinemas on May 19.
