David and Victoria Beckham have decided to move their family out of L.A.—and nobody cares. The media fanfare that greeted their entrance on the Hollywood scene two years ago has dwindled to practically nothing, and a report from Reuters gives some reasons for the lack of interest.
E!’s Ted Casablanca said, “Their impact was hugely anti-climactic for me. Hollywood should have kept Posh and Becks as a fantasy, because in reality they didn’t pan out.”
Former Us Weekly editor Bonnie Fuller thinks that the Posh style didn’t appeal to American women.She didn’t have enough hair. American women are big hair girls. They want celebrities with long, sexy hair which they can aspire to. Posh is also superglam most days, all day, and American women relate much more to Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie’s uniform of jeans, T-shirts and sexy little sweaters.”
Veteran Hollywood PR exec Howard Bragman offers that Beckhams didn’t try hard enough to fit into the scene. “I’m not sure if they chose to not be that social or if it was because there are so many other celebrities in Los Angeles. I think their careers are just fine. I think they both have had enough publicity for 10 lifetimes and I don’t think not getting it is something they go home and commiserate about.”
Well, maybe now Becks can get back to actually playing soccer.
