Victoria Beckham on George Clooney: "He’s a real gentlemen"

(showbizspy.com) - Victoria Beckham has opened up about her burgeoning friendship with George Clooney, saying the Michael Clayton star is "a real gentlemen."

The former Spice Girl - who recently celebrated her 34th birthday with a lavish bash - spent time with the Hollywood hunk during a flight on Giorgio Armani's private earlier this month - but insists her soccer star husband has nothing to worry about.

She says, "I have only just got to know George. He was so nice, a real gentleman and absolutely hilarious. He has a great sense of humor.

"But I think David is better looking than him. Definitely."

And Victoria - who moved to Los Angeles when David signed up with the LA Galaxy - says the entire family, including kids Romeo; Brooklyn; and Cruz, are loving life in America. "They are getting American accents. Brooklyn keeps saying 'awesome'," she said.

David and Victoria aren't exactly what you'd expect A-list parents to be: They're typically hands on, throwing themselves into every aspect of their children's lives.

"David and I are always in the school. We go and serve up hot lunches. It's the same food we used to get at school - turkey twizzlers," she added in an interview with British newspaper The Sun. "I go on the school trips too.

"We turn up and get really hands-on. Romeo had to do 'What my parents do' day recently. We both sign up for everything at the school. We had a cake-baking day as well.

She continues, "They love it when Mummy and Daddy turn up to serve lunch. My parents do it and David's mum has done it too. I'd rather go to Pumpkin Patch at school than dinner at the Ivy.

"I'm a seriously strict mum and David is a strict dad. The boys have good manners. It is really important they are good kids."
