Brooklyn Beckham's night out with Superman star Henry Cavill

Coming from distinguished celebrity pedigree carries certain advantages and lucky Brooklyn Beckham took full privilege on Tuesday night, attending a swanky party with the great, the good and Superman. At a London film screening, the famous teenager rubbed shoulders with Sir David Attenborough, David Gandy, Nick Grimshaw and Henry Cavill, who starred as the superhero in the Man of Steel.


Brooklyn Beckham says his parents are pretty strict

The 16-year-old wasn't chaperoned by his parents David and Victoria Beckham, who by his own admission, can be pretty "strict". The power couple were hosting a dinner across town at her Mayfair store.

However, that doesn't mean Brooklyn was left to his own devices. Johnny Lu, the director of the short film Orchids of Banos, about the battle to save a rare strain of the flower, is a family friend.

As is Henry, following Becks' cameo appearance in the Guy Ritchie production The Man from U.N.C.L.E. The two celebrities met up earlier this summer for Guy's idyllic festival-themed wedding to Jacqui Ainsley.

When it comes to their children the Beckhams are known to be very vigilant. David says he monitors all content that goes out on Brooklyn's Instagram feed – the teen currently boasts 4.4million followers on the picture-sharing site.

"We control everything he posts, everything that he does, and it's the same with our other kids," David told ABC, referring to 13-year-old Romeo, ten-year-old Cruz and four-year-old Harper.

Meanwhile, Victoria has said she is a stickler for 'pleases' and 'thank yous'.

Speaking on Good Morning America she said: "We’ve always been strict with the children. They have great manners – they always say 'please' and 'thank you' and I think that's important.

"But at the same time, they're still fun and they still run around the house and they're still crazy and they're dancing and they're kicking footballs around, which I don't allow them to do.

"That seems to be the one area I can't discipline them, they will not stop playing football in the house!"

Brooklyn was also accompanied by director Johnny Lu

One aspect both David and Victoria are a little more laid-back about is a curfew. "My parents are really cool and I never get in that late anyway," he told Miss Vogue.

It's a recipe that seems to have worked: this summer Brooklyn passed his GSCEs much to his mother's pride. And he is currently considering his options career-wise. "I love football, but I'm also very passionate about photography and film. I'm keeping my options open right now."
