The retired soccer star and sometime underwear model admitted he was stumped when the question was posed during a radio interview with U.K.’s talkSPORT on Thursday.
While we love the idea of seeing Pitt in a pair of soccer shorts, the next question is: Who would play Mrs. Beckham?
The topic came up last year when Posh and her Spice Girls bandmates were launching their musical Viva Forever! Mel B. and Geri Halliwell both suggested that Pitt’s fiancée, Angelina Jolie, should play the singer-turned-fashion designer.
But her response wasn’t quite so enthusiastic. She winced and responded, “Oh, God.”
