Police blanketed a downtown block where stars from George Clooney to Tom Cruise were expected to turn out for a bash tonight for soccer star David Beckham and his pop singer wife, Victoria.
The guest list for the invitation-only party is packed with Hollywood royalty: Oprah Winfrey, Jim Carrey, Steven Spielberg and David Geffen.
The party comes a night after Beckham made his debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
He's nursing an injured ankle and played about 15 minutes.
Cruise and his wife actress Katie Holmes have befriended the Beckhams and are their neighbors in Beverly Hills.
Cruise organized the party with Will Smith.
Oversized American and British fluttered from poles outside the
warehouse-like building where the party is to be held.
