Iza Calzado is currently based in Los Angeles because of her improvisation classes to help her in chasing her Hollywood dreams. Little did she know that aside from this, she will also get the chance to meet the famous, handsome, and professional football player David Beckham.
On Instagram (@missizacalzado
) today, July 28, the Kapamilya actress shared the story about her first encounter with David.
"Posted this story on my private Facebook account earlier and thought It would be nice to share it with you guys.. I just met and had a lovely chat with David Beckham at Erewhon!!!!! 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.' Then we shook hands.
"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.' Then I was called up to the cashier and he said 'It was lovely to meet you.' He was the nicest and even said bye to me as I was leaving and said 'It was very nice to meet you.' OMG I'm dying!!!!!!"
She went on to thank the professional football player.
"Thank you, David Beckham, for being a lovely human being! I know [you] are [known] for your good looks and football skill but for me, your greatest strength is your kindness. I am now a FAN!!!!" she enthused.
In the end, Iza explained why she doesn't have a "selfie" picture with David.
"P.S. To those asking about taking a selfie.. No, I didn't ask for a photo. I would rather he remember our conversation and that I made him feel more like a human being rather than a piece of public property. Pero Juskoooo, grabe pagpigil ko at Sabay tili pagsakay sa uber!!!"
Meanwhile, Iza is one of the lead stars of the upcoming television series with Ian Veneracion and Bea Alonzo.
