Los Angeles: Former soccer star David Beckham, while denying he would be the next James Bond, said he could not stop laughing at the reports.
Beckham, 40, said he found the rumour funny, setting the record straight that he was "definitely" not planning to be an 007 agent, reported Aceshowbiz.
"I saw that the other day and I laughed many times about it. Definitely won't be in the next James Bond," he said.
It was fans' effort that pushed Beckham's name to be considered as the next James Bond as Daniel Craig's contract approached its expiration date.
Last week, his representative quickly said Beckham "was not planning to step into the action heroes shoes any time soon, despite recently expressing his interest in acting."
