    Such gorgeous kids. Those boys can pull off suits better than most guys I know.

  2. Amelia says:

    The Beckhams and Natalie Portman in one go?
    France is getting popular!
    Apparently he’s donating his entire five month salary to a children’s charity, though, so that’s a chock load of brownie points right there.

    • Bellatrix says:

      Well, considering that’s tax deductible and that the tax on big salaries in France is rather high, I’m not going to applaud too hard…

      Cynism in France, eh, what can I say? It’s our favourite game.

      • Christina says:

        I made a similar comment below. I’m sure Beckham isn’t lying when he says he’s going to donate his salary, but I’m willing to bet that his ‘salary’ is only a small part of the total amount of cash PSG will pay him over the next several months. Also, the manner in which he made the announcement, stating that he and the club had decided together to donate the money (since when do employees consult with their employers over how to spend their salary?) smacked of a PR move to me.

  3. OhDear says:

    The youngest boy looks exactly like dad.

    Going to PSG would be perfect for all of them (Victoria’s fashion line, being in London in case Brooklyn gets into the Chelsea youth academy, being closer to family, etc.).

  4. Dap says:

    Beckham already said that his family will stay in London (It’s not very far away from Paris)

  5. Lenna says:

    He also said Posh and the boys would live in London still because they don’t want to take the kids out of school

  6. Relli says:

    OMG I LOVE PARTY GIRL!

    BEST PARKER POSEY MOVIE EVER!!!!

    I caught it one night on cable when I was 17 and I swear it changed my life!

    Also how does Guillermo Díaz remain so ageless?!?!?

  7. Christina says:

    Living in/near Paris should make it easier for ‘Posh’ to confer with the true designer of ‘her’ fashion line, Roland Mouret.

  8. T.Fanty says:

    I want Jude Law’s house. Preferably, with him still in it.

  9. Ms Kay says:

    Gosh this better be good for PSG, I mean first Zlatan (who is like a half-God for most now) and now him… They better finish Champs at the end of the season otherwise that’d be embarrassing, because as much as I like Beckham and as much as I get that it is an excellent PR/Marketing stunt and strategy for the PSG, he isn’t exactly the amazing free-kick magic foot he was back in the late 90′s, I’ve followed his matches with LA Galaxy and he has faded… Anyway I guess it’s for the prestige…

    • Christina says:

      I think it’s more of a PR move than a football move, and the short-term nature of the contract confirms that. At 37, Beckham is long past his best on the pitch, and he hasn’t played in a top league for years. However, signing him will win a lot of prestige for PSG, and will help in marketing their ‘brand’ internationally. These days, football is played in the boardroom almost as much as on the pitch.

  10. Alli says:

    I keep surprising myself at how much I still love Val Kilmer. Weight, crazy, his inability to stop pretending he’s Mark Twain…all of it. There is a hint of 80′s Kilmer in that photo and now all I want is to watch Willow this wekeend.

  11. KellyinSeattle says:

    They’re a beautiful family and actually seen very grounded. Look out Paris! Victoria would be able to adjust wherever she was.

  12. Erinn says:

    Bleck. I can’t stand Danica Patrick. She’s an average racer, at best, in the Sprint series. When she’s not causing accidents, anyway.

  13. keats says:

    Considering my cat YOWLED ALL NIGHT LONG, she’s probably taking a break from bird killing to sleep. That means plenty of energy for more yowls tonight!

  14. madpoe says:

    So Paris lost Johnny Depp and gain the Beckhams and Natalie Portman. *debate*

  15. Arlene says:

    Donating all his wages too, class act.

    • Christina says:

      Maybe I’m cynical (no, definitely I’m cynical!) but I’m a bit skeptical about this ‘donating his entire salary’ claim. I don’t doubt that it’s true in the sense that Beckham won’t be paid a ‘salary’ during his time in Paris. However, I’m willing to bet that he is receiving a hefty financial ‘consideration’ – ie not technically a ‘salary’ – in return for his services. Note that he hasn’t revealed just how much his salary will be. I just can’t imagine that someone who’s shown himself so fond of money throughout his career is playing at PSG for nothing at all.

    HAHA, it doesn’t look like Kim K is showing off anything in that sheer shirt besides her camel toe. Well at least this shows she’s gaining weight and all she’s really doing is wearing bigger dresses and clothes.

  17. melior says:

    Yey After Ibrahimovic, Beckham… I think I just might go to a PSG game soon

  18. Katie says:

    Can we vote on some other celebrities to export?
    Beyonce
    Kim K
    Justin Beiber
    Nicki minaj
    Lindsay Lohan
    Leeann rimes

  19. Patrice says:

    Posh let loose as a resident of Paris?! Can you imagine? :P

  20. TQB says:

    I give you full credit for planting the idea of Timberlake at the Grammy’s.

  21. mills says:

    Love katie but how can she go to law school without an undergrad degree?

  22. gemmaa says:

    I just went through the pix of Judes house, imagining he still lives there, and placing my items amongst his, cozily. Dreams will be suhweet tonight.

  23. Ranunculus says:

    Gee, first Portman and now Beckham and his 2 balloons on a stick wife. I feel really bad for Paris. Why only stupid celebs move there?

  24. ViktoryGin says:

    Am I the only one who is not impressed with Jude Law’s place? I mean 6.8 mil for that?!

    I know that it’s London, but damn. The price seems a bit steep to me for what you get.

    • OMSS says:

      The money is not necessarily the price of the house… it’s the postcode. If that same house was in my area it would only cost £500,000 max – my area (still a notorious mess) is in the process of gentrification, so the prices are going up and pricing out original dwellers.
