Teen superstar Hilary Duff has a huge crush on hunky soccer star DAVID BECKHAM.

The LIZZIE McGUIRE actress and singer, 16, admits the Real Madrid player, 28, is her perfect pin-up, but is wary of his ex-SPICE GIRL wife VICTORIA - who has slammed celebrities in the past for expressing their admiration for her husband.

Hilary gushes, "I really like David Beckham, but he's a bit too old for me and also Victoria might kill me if she reads this.

"But I do think he's gorgeous."
