He kept asking, ‘Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?’ He was like, ‘Oh, your tremendous size, you can actually work?’ I just remember all the blood drained out of me. I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ ”

-After a summer of rampant speculation about affairs and separations, Victoria and David Beckham are presenting a united front in the new issue of British Vogue.

Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago? It’s all about the family unit. We are much stronger – the six of us – than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond and that is key”).
