Mr. T says David Beckham copied his Mohican hairstyle.

The 'A-Team' actor insists the soccer star's 2001 hairstyle was a "big compliment" to him and claims David had it done so people would think he was a tough guy.

He said: "Maybe David Beckham thought if he cut his hair like Mr. T, the guys on the opposing team would think he knew Mr. T and say, 'Don't hurt me, man!'

"I think he was using a psychological ploy to make himself look real mean like Mr. T."

Despite his tough guy image, Mr. T also admitted he once cried after his last performance in a pantomime in 1992 - where he played the genie in 'Aladdin' - after the crowd cheered and brought him flowers.

He said: "I went to my dressing room and - even though Mr. T's tough - I cried. It wasn't a sign of weakness, it was an expression for the love they showed me."

The former bodyguard to Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali added: "There's only one Mr. T. When God made Mr. T, he broke the mould. Mr. T will live for ever."
