London: A representative of actor Tom Cruise has rubbished reports that he is planning to get soccer ace David Beckham for a cameo in `Mission: Impossible 4`.

Cruise had recently praised Beckham and admitted he`s been "encouraging him to become an actor" because of his Hollywood looks. It was subsequently reported that Cruise is lining up a small role in the action franchise for him, reports

However, Cruise`s spokesperson has rubbished the speculation, insisting that the actor`s comments have been "blown out of proportion".

"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," said the spokesperson.
