Victoria Beckham, the wife of former Manchester United star David Beckham, felt like an idiot when she was caught on camera sitting in the stands at an England away game in 2000. She described the whole embarrassing situation in her autobiography.
She was with the Football Association which had arranged for a chartered plane from Stansted Brussels to Eindhoven. Upon arriving, their driver parked in a backstreet, so the group had to walk for twenty minutes to the stadium.
Victoria Beckham and her group had arrived two hours before kick-off and their seats were five rows from the front. As soon as people saw Victoria, the cameras came out and she felt like a complete idiot. She was wearing a baseball cap with the brim pulled down to cover her eyes and she felt uncomfortable with the attention.
In her autobiography, she mentioned “A moody cow with a baseball cap pulled down over her eyes. I felt like a complete idiot, just sitting there with hardly anyone else about.”
Victoria asked her security guards if there was somewhere they could go for the two hours before kick-off. She felt awkward just sitting there with hardly anyone else around.
Victoria’s story shows the pressure that celebrities can be under in public places. Even though she was in a large crowd, Victoria was still easily recognizable and felt exposed.
Victoria is not the only celebrity to feel embarrassed in public. Other stars have also found themselves in similar situations, where they feel uncomfortable with the attention and scrutiny they receive. However, Victoria’s story serves as a reminder that celebrities are still human and can feel embarrassed and awkward in public places, just like everyone else.
