David and Victoria Beckham
The Beckhams are immortalized as Simpsons characters – eight years after being rejected by the show of the maker for “not famous enough.”
David, 43, shared the picture of his family, including his wife Victoria, 44, and their children, Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and seven-year-old Harper, after they are converted into the yellow characters by an artist.
He posted the photo on his Instagram account and thanked Stefano Monda to his dream.
David captioned the post: “I mean come on…I thank you!”
“The Simpsons” principal writer and executive producer Al Jean admitted in 2010 he had put David on the requests of the family to be a cameo.
He said: “We get a lot of requests from celebrities, and it is always a shame when we put people down. We had a request from David Beckham and I had to phone him and tell him I’m sorry, but I didn’t want him on the show now. I don’t think he was a big enough star for an American audience. I have a lot of grief about it. Some people are really angry about it and I was told, ‘I bet that you would have to be George Best.” I can say I would put it down.”
A previous application in 2003 is also reported to have rejected.
Other stars who have been immortalized by the artist Stefano Monda are Justin Bieber and his wife, Hailey Baldwin and Sophie Turner, and Joe Jonas.
