He feels he wouldn't have reached out to the standards of the big movie stars.

"I have done a few things over the last 15 years, but nothing of these standards. I will keep it at that, I think," Beckham told Metro newspaper at the BAFTA Awards Sunday, reports

Despite his glittering career on the football field, the 39-year-old still gets star-struck.

"I do get excited. I just bumped into Benedict (Cumberbatch). He's a great guy. I have met him a few times over the last six months. It's great to be here and see so many talented people."
