has reportedly been getting diet advice from soccer ace David Beckham
The Top Gun
star and his wife, Katie Holmes
, became pals with Beckham when the footballer and his Spice Girl
moved to Los Angeles last year. And the actor is said to have shed 10 pounds in just six weeks with the sports star's help.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mail
newspaper, "David has been round at Tom's house a lot. While Katie and Victoria have been swapping fashion tips on the phone, David has been advising Tom on diet."
"Tom has a private gym at his home and David has been working out with him. He also gave him diet advice. Tom has been sticking to 1,200 calories a day, mostly grilled chicken and fish with lots of vegetables, salads and fruit. David put together a work-out regime that included the treadmill, weight training and fencing lessons together."
And the reason for the ageing actor's sudden health kick appears to be to do with his young family.
The source adds, "Tom had been steadily gaining weight. He didn't notice it at first but then he developed quite a paunch. He hated it when pictures started appearing of him with a belly and love handles. He turned 46 this summer and he's got a 29-year-old wife and a young family so he wanted to get back in shape."
