David Beckham terrified of going bald and getting fat

David Beckham has admitted in the past that he’s obsessive compulsive about keeping things organized and ensuring his house is clean. Now that the 33 year-old international soccer sensation is getting older, he’s becoming obsessed about his body. He’s been given the title “best abs in Hollywood,” but he still fears getting a paunch and losing his hair.

“He’s constantly telling Vic he fears he’s going bald, or if he spots a hint of a paunch on his midsection, he hits the gym for an hour,” chuckled an insider. Soccer’s always kept Beckham in fighting shape, but he now fears the worst as he senses the sun setting on his athletic career. “David is so vain – he can’t stand the thought of growing into a fat, bald old man,” said a friend. Posh, highly amused by hubby’s angst, loves giving him the needle. “She’ll tell him she found some hair in the shower and ask – was that his? She loves teasing him about his future as a schlumpy old man because it gives her the upper hand, a button to push!”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, Mike Walker's column, September 9, 2008]

Men are irrationally afraid of losing their hair, in my opinion. I find bald men pretty hot as long as they keep it short and don’t attempt to hang on to their hair. David Beckham has clipped his hair pretty short, maybe because he’s losing it, and he looks as smoking hot as ever. He doesn’t have an egg-shaped head or anything and has nothing to worry about.

It looks like Victoria is the person who has stopped obsessing with her body in the Beckham household. She gained a small amount of weight and still looks very thin, but she’s not scary skinny anymore. She looks great and much better than before. She’s shown out in Manchester, England last night with a bodyguard or driver who happens to be bald and rocking it. She wore a black dress pantsuit out to a restaurant. The Daily Mail had to point out that she had something on her ear – possibly a little scrape or injury. Big whoop.

David Beckham is shown during training with England on 8/18/08.

    He’ll just have hair plugs. I can only imagine Victoria loving this since he’s the better-looking of the two and surely more beautiful women than her must be throwing themselves at him all the time. That’s the trouble with being beautiful, you never want to give it up. I know, cry me a river!

  2. Syko says:

    Fat, he can take care of. Bald? Bleh. Who cares? Bald men are hot! Anyway, it seems odd that someone fearful of baldness would shave their hair so short.

  3. Diva says:

    Aww, lol, David Beckham is afraid of becoming my husband! heehee

    Bald is SEXY, David, don’t fool yourself. It comes with the testosterone that also deepens a man’s voice… oh, lol, wait, you’ve got nothing to worry about!

    I kid, I kid, lol, I love Beckham. I just love my bald, thick Englishman more! :D

  4. Kaiser says:

    Bald is *so much* better than plugs or a comb-over. Or *shudder* a toupee.

    I don’t get why men are so afraid of balding – most women I know love bald men.

    You know, it strikes me as perfectly normal that a professional athlete would be concerned about keeping in top physical condition, especially since by 34 and 35 pro athletes are technically past their physical peak, which must be hard to deal with when it’s been your entire life.
    As for bald…well, men are allowed their insecurities, too.
    Why accuse him of being “vain”–at least any more than anyone else?
    But I thought it was funny that Victoria is teasing him. That’s exactly what I would do to my husband! I would do it to make him see that it was NOT a big deal, that I’d love him no matter what…why say she is doing it to “get the upper hand”?
    Why the nasty digs?
    It just seems unnecessarily spiteful.

    Bald men are gorgeous, think sexy Ross Kemp.

  7. KERRI says:

    Aren’t we all! :cry:

  8. abbizmal says:

    Why would he worry about going bald since he cuts it almost that short? Be less to shave that way. Yes, bald men are hot.

  9. Larissa says:

    like that body guard on one of Vic´s pics?lol

    not all bold men are sexy, but am sure he would do perfectly fine as one.

    Guess what. Getting old is a bitch and then you die. Oh would that it could be any other way!

    David Beckham doesn’t really do it for me, looks-wise, he just seems normal, even a little doofish-y, but Posh Beckham is looking BEAUtiful in these photos! She is looking absolutely beautiful, and I love that black thing she’s wearing.

    I also think it’s sweetly hilarious how she teases him with the finding-hair-in-the-shower thing. Cute! I’m beginning to really like Posh lately, the more I find out about her. I never knew much about her before…

  12. Kris says:

    Uhh his hair is ridiculously short. He’s so weird.

  13. Courtney says:

    There is absolutely nothing at all appealing or masculine about this girly speaking guy that everyone seems to be all aflutter over. I don’t get his appeal for one second.

  14. Trashaddict says:

    A mutually anorexic couple in Hollywood. How unique. I hope their kids aren’t already barfing their meals up before going back for seconds…..

  15. Nightbird says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, ladies, but I don’t think women really care about a man’s hairline. Granted, if he’s 21 and balding, maybe, but mid 30′s- older, and looks like a Beckham or Jason Statham, I’m guessing they don’t care.

    And if you do, just remember, outside of cosmetic surgery…your boobs are gonna hit the floor.

    Even trade.

    In other words he’s the male equivalent of Madonna. Okay. I just hope they know that so long as they live long enough they will get old. Fact of life.

  17. sabine says:

    This story sounds like a bunch of baloney.

  18. paris herpes says:

    She must have gained only a few ounces back because she looks nearly the same in these pictures. I can’t believe she actually goes out to eat, what does she eat anyway? A few leaves of lettuce and water? David is being as crazy irrational as Posh is about her weight, I guess it comes with living with someone who looks like a weird skeleton alien with watermelon boobs tacked on.
