Styles, 19, met Beckham at the premiere of the documentary "The Class of 92", which follows Beckham and his Manchester United teammates through their early career.
"I think David Beckham was everyone's idol when we were growing up. You'd almost have to ask for another one, because it was David Beckham every time," dailystar.co.uk quoted Styles as saying.
"He's a legend, a great guy. I think it's great that he shows how someone can have so much success, I think he's a great role model," he added.
