David Beckham has admitted he found the experience of stripping to his underwear for a series of Emporio Armani adverts ''daunting''
David Beckham finds stripping "daunting".
The England soccer player famously posed in his underwear for an Emporio Armani underwear campaign but admits it was not something that came naturally to him.
He told 10 magazine: "I still feel quite shy when I see a poster or campaign like that.
"It was daunting stripping off in front of a roomful of people. But after a while you get used to it - although my mum still hasn't."
While the 34-year-old soccer star's mother Sandra may not have been too happy with the shoot, his three children - ten-year-old Brooklyn, Romeo, six and Cruz, four - found the adverts amusing.
David said last year: "When they first saw then they were like, 'Daddy, why are you in your underwear so everyone can see?' They don't mind. If they were older they'd be embarrassed, maybe."
David previously admitted he was delighted to be offered the job by Armani because he got to work with his wife Victoria, who modelled the female range for the Italian fashion house.
He said: "We never get a chance to work together and when we do, it's amazing. It was great to work with her on the day."
