After Victoria Beckham's amazing cameo in David Beckham: Into the Unknown last night, with her asking David how he was going to do his hair, we remember her brilliant one-liners from "I want to be as famous as Persil Automatic" to "It is like a tractor exhaust pipe!" when describing husband David Beckham's assets. She might put on a serious face in front of the cameras, but these 20 hilarious quotes prove she is a natural jester at heart.

  • On being married to David Beckham

    "They always say, 'My God David is so handsome, he's gorgeous, he's so good looking... and she's so funny.' Basically that means you're a pig with a sense of humor."
