David Beckham advised by Tom
David Beckham is taking confidence tips from Tom Cruise. The soccer star – who became close friends with the actor when he moved to Los Angeles to play for LA Galaxy – is seeking advice from the actor about how to become a better public speaker after being asked to undertake a number of public engagements when the soccer World Cup takes place next month.
A source close to David said: “For someone who has been in the public eye for so long, David is still not the most confident when it comes to speaking out. He’s very shy.
“He has spoken to Tom among others about how best to motivate people. Tom is a confident guy and always gives him great advice and David wants to be able to do the same, whatever the circumstances.”

Tom Cruise advised by Suri
Tom Cruise discusses his career plans with his four-year-old daughter. The actor – who is married to Katie Holmes – describes the story contained in his scripts to Suri and then listens to her questions because he thinks it makes him a better actor.
He said: “I’ll put Suri on a swing and tell her stories when I’m working on a script. “I’ll start with the beginning of the movie and take her through the story beat by beat. Of course, I make it age-appropriate. She’s four years old. But she asks all the right questions, ‘Why does that happen?’ ‘Those are the bad guys?’ ‘You’re the good guy, right?’ “It comes down to the same thing as when I was a kid. Can I create a character that will make her happy, that will make her laugh? And you know what? She makes me get better and better, because she’s always asking me to do it again.”

Celine Dion hopeful for second baby
Celine Dion is “waiting for good news” about a second pregnancy. The 42-year-old singer – who has a nine-year-old son Rene-Charles with husband Rene Angelil – confesses she doesn’t like to talk about having more children but would love to add to her family in the future. She said: “Well we’re crossing our fingers. We’re waiting for good news hopefully. I don’t want to talk about it so much because I’m superstitious, but I know people have been very wonderful for us and praying for us. Right now we are crossing our fingers, we hope for the best and I can’t wait to give people good news.”

Heather Mills still pursues rock n’ rollers?
Heather Mills reportedly had her romantic advances turned down by a musician on Monday. The former model – the ex-wife of Sir Paul McCartney – amazed onlookers at the premiere of ‘Arabia 3D’ at London’s IMAX Waterloo when she “made a beeline” for RPJ Band frontman Rick Parfitt Jr. and refused to leave him alone for the rest of the evening. An onlooker said: “They looked very cosy. Rick was being very charming with her and the other stars seemed a little wary of chatting to her. “So she attached herself to him for most of the event and kept playing with her hair and gazing into his eyes. “It was a very strange sight to behold.” However, the 42-year-old charity campaigner was left disappointed after the rocker left the Saudi Arabia-themed VIP area as soon as the movie ended. The source added: “Interestingly, Rick didn’t hang around too long after the premiere and appeared to do a runner as soon as it had ended.”
