Salma Hayek to Bend it One Hour with David Beckham

Sir Richard Branson's Rock The Kasbah

Salma Hayek and David Beckham will spend one hour together...

Now, before you get any strange ideas from the title of this post... ;-)

Apparently, Salma, a native of Mexico, likes futbol, and wants to learn the more intricate nuances of the sport from its most famous star.

Earlier this year, she bid almost $276,000 for private lessons with Mr. Beckham. Or $4600 per minute.

"The 'Frida' actress paid $276,000 for a one-hour private lesson with the soccer star at a New York charity auction hosted by Madonna in February - outbidding formidable American Vogue editor Anna Wintour in the process - but has yet to claim her prize."

"A spokesman for David said: "As yet, we haven't been able to sort out a date that suits all parties."

"Soccer players do it for 90 minutes" was a tee shirt slogan from my youth.

But in this case, that is very good work for one hour. Especially for a good cause.

But the question remains?

What would you spend for one hour with Salma Hayek? :-)
