He usually only strikes a pose if there's a hefty number of zeros after the pound sign.
But David Beckham fooled around with his three sons in front of the paparazzi while playing in the Malibu waves.
The football ace, along with Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, propped themselves up on their surfboards, gave their best brooding glance and perched their other hand on their hip.

Gordon Ramsay and his family, who are close friends with the Beckhams, also had a dip in the water.
The celebrity chef was spotted visiting the ever-growing brood this weekend.
However, after meeting baby Harper Seven, Gordon still managed to squeeze in some surfing with pal David, as the pair hit the waves with their families.

Donning a wetsuit, Gordon laughed and joked as he tried to catch the best waves with David's oldest son Brooklyn.
Despite reports Gordon has been asked by the couple to be Harper's godfather, the Beckhams' spokesperson insisted there were no plans to have their daughter christened, adding their younger son Cruz hadn't been christened either.
Also on the day out was Gordon's children, Megan, Jack, Holly and Matilda, as well as his wife Tana, who gave the surfing a miss, instead choosing to soak up the sunshine on the beach.
Meanwhile, Victoria was also absent from the beach, instead choosing to stay inside with baby Harper in the luxurious $150,000-a-month mansion the pair are renting for the summer from Steven Spielberg.

The seven-bedroom, ten-bathroom mansion was custom-built for Spielberg and looks out on to what has been called 'the most exclusive piece of sand in the world'.
Pierce Brosnan, Dustin Hoffman, Danny DeVito and Goldie Hawn all live in the area.
A neighbour said: 'It's very peaceful and relaxing for the Beckhams. I've seen Victoria on the beach watching the dolphins with the family. She must feel like she's in heaven.'
A source close to the Beckhams, who are worth an estimated £165million, said: 'As soon as Victoria saw pictures of the house she told David it was the perfect place to relax and recover after the birth of the baby.
'David didn't think twice and signed a lease straight away.'

Since then, the footballer and his sons have been frequently seen on the beach, often with their bulldog Coco.
Earlier this week, David was spotted snapping pictures of his three boys catching the waves in Malibu - and it seems the trio are becoming keen surfers thanks to the amount of time they have been spending in the sea in recent weeks.
Victoria has yet to be seen following the birth of baby Harper on 10th July, apart from a Twitter picture of the former Spice Girls star with her beautiful little girl.
And David recently revealed baby Harper is already a fashionista in the making, with a growing collection of fashionable garments.

Speaking about the two-week old baby girl, the former England captain, 36, said: ‘Everything Victoria’s put on her so far looks amazing, she's got a great wardrobe already.
'My wife is going to definitely take care of that.’
And even though Victoria had to have a fourth caesarean, Beckham said the couple were still keen for ‘one more’ baby.
He said: ‘Are we done now or will we see any more in the future? We'd like one more.
'We've always said we'd love a big family and five was the number. If we're lucky enough, then we hope to have one more. Victoria's doing amazingly well. So we'll see.'
