Apparently Beckham enjoyed wearing ballet attire in his younger years: "I was a pageboy and had a choice between wearing some boring old suit or a pair of knickerbockers with ballerina tights and slippers," he said. "So I went with the tights. It's not that I always wanted to be different, but I knew what I liked." All signs point to David Beckham mantyhose ads at next year's Super Bowl!
