David Beckham has appeared on a massive US chat show – to the delight of screaming female fans in the audience.
Since moving to Los Angeles to play for the Galaxy, David has lived in the same neighbourhood as Jay Leno, host of the The Tonight Show.
The pair traded jokes, with David apologising for the paparazzi hanging around the area they both live in.
But he said American celebrity photographers ‘have been kind to us’ compared to those in Britain who are constantly trailing the soccer star and his wife Victoria.
Jay quizzed Beckham about Emporio Armani ads that have the footballer appearing in his pants.
“Do you normally sit around the house like this?” asked Jay.
Women in the live audience screamed and applauded the black and white photo showing Beckham’s rippled stomach. However, Beckham said he was nervous during the photo shoot because his mum was going to see him lounging around in almost no clothes.
“When the photos came out, she was the first one to call me and say, ‘What are you doing?’ I had to try and explain it to her and it didn’t go down that well,” he said.
