Caught & Social: Beckham cock-a-hoop at game

Untitled 215 239x300 Caught & Social: Beckham cock a hoop at gameDavid Beckham may be trying to win Americans over to the beautiful game, but basketball is still the sport that has the hearts and minds of his Hollywood neighbours. The footballer was spotted courtside with Entourage actor Jeremy Piven as the LA Lakers took on the New Orleans Hornets in the play-offs. And it seems that celebrity-spotting was just as much of an activity as sports-watching on the night, with Steven Spielberg, pictured right, Megan Fox, Jon Hamm, Andy Garcia and Zac Efron all among the crowd.

Scene & heard

After David Cameron said he liked The Smiths, Morrissey, seems keen to stop another old Etonian, Prince William, declaring himself a fan. The king of the miserabilists has renounced the royal couple as “benefit scroungers”: “Why would I watch the royal wedding?” he asked BBC 5Live. “I don’t think the so-called royal family speak for England now and I don’t think England needs them. I do seriously believe that they are benefit scroungers… I don’t believe they serve any purpose whatsoever.” Sounds like someone wasn’t invited…

The actor wore top and tails for an appearance on US TV to declare his love for the royal couple. “I am swept up with Royal Wedding fever,” he said. “I can’t get enough of it, the coverage, the pageantry. I am so excited, Kate and Willy are very good friends.” To show his devotion to the pair, the comic then planted a tender kiss on the camera. He was doing so well until then too. http://ind.pn/royalferrell

Cleese’s squeeze strikes a pose

John Cleese helpfully points out the camera to girlfriend Jennifer Wade at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum last night. And Wade’s going to need all the showbiz training she can get if reports are to be believed that the star is planning to make her his fourth wife. One aspect of celebrity life the well-tanned Wade looks like she has already mastered, however, is posing. We only say that as the bronze figure in front of the pair was modelled on her after she posed for the artist Jonathan Wylder.
