DAVID Beckham cries every time he watches 'Armageddon'.

The retired British footballer, who has four children with his fashion designer wife, Victoria Beckham, has admitted he is "an emotional wreck" and tears up during most films, including Disney's 'Aladdin'.

The 38-year-old star told BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show: "I'm kind of an emotional wreck with movies. I can't get through some movies without shedding a tear, I can't lie.

"I'm the same when I'm watching 'The Office' or when I'm watching 'Friends.' I just can't get through it."

The 'Class of '92' star also "choked up" while showing the trailer for the new documentary to his sons, Romeo, 11, Brooklyn, 14, and Cruz, eight, recently but managed to keep his composure while filming it with his former Manchester United teammates, Phil Neville, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt.

He said: "I got emotional, I got really emotional throughout, obviously not in front of the lads because they'd have killed me. You can't do that. We're men! But I got emotional filming it."

Meanwhile, David, who also has a two-year-old daughter, Harper, with Victoria, gushed about his love of London but misses a few things about living in Los Angeles.

He said: "I love the heat, I love the sun, but to be honest I was so happy when I came back to London. We moved back in December and I actually really missed the clouds, the cold and the frost.

"I miss a lot from LA. We had such a great time over there. People accepted us with open arms but we're English and we're very happy to be back."
