Victoria Beckham Talks Fame and Family with ‘Harper’s’

Victoria Beckham, who says she doesn’t court fame, will appear on the cover of January’s Harper’s Bazaar. In her interview, she discusses her and husband David Beckham’s famous friends, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

“We’ve known Tom since I was pregnant with Cruz,” Victoria, 34, says. “He’s such an amazing person, and so is Katie. You hear all these strange things about them, but they are genuinely nice, normal people.”

The Cruises and the Beckhams recently had a day out and about together in New York City, which was well-documented by the press.

“I don’t complain about paparazzi because I’ve put myself in that position, and so has David,” Beckham explains. “But I always say to the boys, someone is going to take your picture because you’re handsome or you’re smart or because you’re so good at soccer.”

There does, however seem to be a dark side to all the attention. Says Posh, “Every now and again, Romeo might pick up one of David’s cameras and say, ‘Victoria, Victoria, over here!’ And his attitude is sort of angry.”

Romeo, 6, is the middle child of the Beckham clan. He and brothers Brooklyn, 9, and Cruz, 3, spent last weekend sitting with dad David, 33, at a Lakers home game at downtown Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

“We went for a walk around the neighborhood last night, just with the family. It was so nice. It suits us to be boring,” gushes Victoria. “I tell you, the paparazzi would not be sitting outside if they realized I was the most boring person in Hollywood.”

The January issue of Harper’s hits newsstands December 16.
