Iza Calzado admits fangirling over David Beckham when she met him in Los Angeles recently. However, she did not ask for a selfie with the football superstar. Iza explained, "I would rather remember our conversation and that I made him feel more like a human being rather than a piece of public property."


Iza Calzado related to her Instagram followers her fangirl moment with football legend David Beckham at an upscale health-food store in Los Angeles recently.

The Kapamilya actress said she initially posted her “lovely chat” with Beckham on her private Facebook account.

However, she changed her mind, saying, “It would be nice to share it with you guys.”

Iza then narrated her encounter with the British football player.

“I saw a good looking guy by the food section and thought 'looks like Beckham' so I smiled at him and he smiled back.

“Saw him again, exchanged smiles but I wasn't sure but the tattoos should have been a dead give away.

“I then proceed to line up to pay. He then puts his basket after me.

“I said 'Sorry but I have to ask, are you David Beckham' and he said 'yes, I am.'

“And I was like 'oh gosh, I just had to make sure.'

“Then I added 'I'm from the Philippines so I'm not really from around here so I had to double check. I'm Iza.'”

In their brief conversation, Beckham told Iza about his recent visit in the country for Unicef.

“He told me he was in the PH 9 months ago and I asked if it was for a football thing and he said Unicef sent him there.

“So I said 'oh for Haiyan.. Thank you for doing that.'”

Their convo ended with Beckham telling Iza, “It was very nice to meet you.”

“OMG I'm dying!!!!!!” Iza said as she recalled the moment.

Unfortunately, she did not ask for a selfie with the football superstar.

Iza explained, “I would rather remember our conversation and that I made him feel more like a human being rather than a piece of public property.”

However, she admitted, “Pero Juskoooo, grabe pagpigil ko at Sabay tili pagsakay sa uber!!!”
