Victoria Beckham Acts Strict on Her Sons' Manners

David and Victoria Beckham's sons appear to have it all – and their Hollywood parents make sure they don't forget it, by schooling them in the right manners.

"They've all got their own headed notepaper for thank-you letters," Posh tells London's The Times about her boys: Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 6, and Cruz, 3.

"People are always remarking on how well-behaved the boys are."

Beckham, 34, attributes her appreciation for etiquette to some lessons learned from her own parents. "My mum and dad were real sticklers for good manners and so are me and David," she said.

She also says she shoves aside newspaper speculation about her life, claiming she doesn't "read the stuff" written about her.

"I'm not interested in gossip," she says. "Some of the people that I'm friends with in America – you know, Tom [Cruise] and Katie [Holmes] – they get it, too, and we laugh about all these stupid things."
