Tom's close friends David and Victoria Beckham say one of Tom's movies has special meaning to them. "One of our first dates, we went to the movies to see Jerry Maguire, and I wore glasses," Victoria says. "It was first time David kissed me, and he completely steamed up my glasses."

"When we got to know Tom, we told him the story of how it was one of our first dates, and he sent us the jacket that he wore in one of the scenes, and he signed it," Victoria says. "And David hasn't taken the jacket off since. I make him wear it," she jokes.

While Maverick from Top Gun is Victoria's all-time favorite of Tom's characters, David says he earned a lot of respect for Tom when he played the role of Nathan Algren. "The Last Samurai was one of my most favorite films, and when he spoke to me about how he trained for that a year before, you can see that in the films—and that's why he is the best."
