Michael Sheen has revealed that Victoria Beckham once called security on him – over fears for his own daughter.
The actor says the Spice Girl once mistook him for a "tramp" and believed he was trying to kidnap his daughter.
Michael, 50, shared the unusual tale during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
The Good Omens star had gone to pick up his daughter Lily Mo, now 20, from an ice skating lesson in Los Angeles when the unfortunate case of mistaken identity occured.
Victoria and David were also there, and clearly didn't recognise Michael.
The star said: "I was in LA and went to pick her up from an ice skating lesson. When I got there the Beckhams were there checking out the rink for lessons.
"I was quite hirsute then and when Posh saw me she called security thinking I was a tramp trying to abduct my daughter!"
Michael, who shares Lily Mo with ex Kate Beckinsale, appeared on the BBC chat show with David Tennant, his co-star in new TV series Good Omens, which is based on the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
It tells the story of an angel (Michael) and demon (David) who have to team up to save the world.
But Michael says he was originally supposed to play demon Crowley, rather than angel Aziraphale.
He said: "When the series became a possibility Neil [Gaiman] assumed I would want to play the demon, but when I read a very early version of the script I thought, 'I can’t do that, I’m not good enough.
"I’m better for the angel part, that suits me. We had a very awkward dinner and he finally asked how I would feel about playing the good character and David the demon. It was perfect."
Former Doctor Who star David also chatted to host Graham about expecting his fifth child with wife Georgia Moffett.
He told host Graham: "We have number five child on the way. It’s very exciting. There is a big spread of ages, with a 17 year old at one end.
"When he found out about the new baby, he was like, 'You’re having another one?' It’s odd when a 17 year old is giving his parents a lecture on birth control!"
* The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC One on Friday, May 31 at 10.35pm.
