Victoria Beckham is best known for her sense of style, her ice-cold stare and her gorgeous hubby David Beckham.
If she's not making guest appearances on hit TV shows, she's on the cover of a tabloid or fashion magazine. So what's the real Victoria like? What insecurities does she have? And why doesn't she ever smile?
Victoria graces the October cover of Elle magazine in which she discusses her boobs (sort of), her kids, career, and of course her hubby David. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Victoria on her rumored recent breast augmentation to a smaller size: "We should just not talk about each other’s boobs."
Victoria on keeping herself busy with TV while David was away: "I’ve done Nip/Tuck, Brothers & Sisters, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice. Then I got into Gossip Girl. I’m beyond obsessed with that show."
Victoria on raising her children: "[They] bloody well will work. Same as myself, same as David. They’re not going to be the kind of kids that just hang about. I want them to be able to fulfill their passions, but I think it’s important that the children grow up and have respect for themselves."
Victoria on being perceived as a cold person: "People think I’m a moody bitch. I do have my insecurities. Maybe that is why I look a little bit serious. The kind of person who’s going to stand on the red carpet and love the attention and have the big grin—I’m just not like that. I want to get in there, do what I’ve got to do, and get home to my kids."
Victoria on adjusting to life in America: "You know, I love America. It’s such a positive country. When people say to me, ‘How long did it take for you to adjust? Poor you, it must’ve been really difficult’ – poor me? I’m living in Beverly Hills. I’m very, very lucky. I wake up every morning and I recognize that I’m blessed."
Victoria on being separated from husband David Beckham for six months while he was playing soccer in Milan: "I felt like someone had chopped my arm off, to be completely honest. Everything we do, we do together. I very rarely go out on my own, unless it’s a work commitment."
Victoria on the way people in Los Angeles dress: "I find it odd that people will go to a nice restaurant or to theater in jeans and T-shirts. You know, it’s great, David loves it. But it’s very different to my personal style."
Victoria on her ever changing personal style: "There are celebrities who always look great, always look pretty, but it’s always the same hair, the same makeup, and I find that quite boring. I want to change it up, do something really creative. I think that might be why women like me."
Victoria on whether her look has changed since moving from England to Beverly Hills: "I haven’t changed the way that I dress at all, which is probably why people stare a lot."
Victoria on her private family life: "David and I have a working relationship together, and we also have a private life together. Someone used the example recently of Brad and Angelina. They might be in a movie together, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to let someone film them at home. I don’t do ‘at homes’ with my family. I don’t march my kids down red carpets. It’s just not how we choose to do things."
Victoria on the prices of her own dresses: "Would I think twice about buying a dress that costs $2,000? Yeah! Of course I would. I’d try it on and go home and think about it before I bought it."
