Hollywood royalty are rolling out the red carpet for David & Victoria Beckham at a “Welcome to America” party this weekend. Beckham pals Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes and Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith organized the lavish, private shindig, scheduled for this Sunday evening in Los Angeles.
Access Hollywood obtained one of the email invitations sent out to guests, which states:
“Please join Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes and Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith in welcoming David & Victoria Beckham to Los Angeles.”
The party will be held in the Geffen Contemporary at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art Sunday at 9:30 PM, according to the invite. Reported A-listers on the guest list include Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Jim Carrey, Steven Spielberg, and various studio bigwigs. Those hoping to attend will be out of luck unless they receive an official invitation, and anyone hoping to capture party moments on film will be sorely disappointed: “No cameras please,” the invitation states. The Beckhams moved to the U.S. from Europe this past weekend, in light of David’s new position with the LA Galaxy professional soccer team. His big debut game against Chelsea is scheduled for Saturday, but Beckham told ESPN yesterday that he may not be able to play due to an ankle injury. “I’m still having a lot of treatment. At the moment it doesn’t look good that I’m going to play because the swelling is still there,” Beckham said during an interview during the ESPN2 telecast. “I’m here for five years. I’m not here just obviously for the game on Saturday.” Hopefully, his ankle will be well enough to get him to Sunday’s party!
