LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Victoria Beckham, who with British soccer star husband David Beckham makes a much anticipated move to Los Angeles this week, scoffed on Monday at suggestions she wanted to launch a Hollywood movie career.

"I must be the only person in Los Angeles who doesn't want to be in films," Beckham joked.

"I don't think I am that good at acting actually," the former "Posh Spice" member of the 1990s band "The Spice Girls" told reporters in a telephone conference.

The family's move to the United States will be chronicled in a reality TV-style documentary "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America" to be broadcast on NBC on July 16.

She said her jeans, sunglasses and perfume business was her real passion, along with her husband and sons Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 4 and Cruz, 2-1/2 years old.

"I am really concentrating on my fashion line. That's my passion. I had a lot of fun doing the documentary but I wouldn't say I'm going to be the next TV star," she said.

The hour-long documentary was filmed in recent weeks as the Beckhams organized their move from Spain, where David played for Real Madrid, to their $22 million Beverly Hills mansion.

Victoria, 33, also denied suggestions that the reformed "Spice Girls", whose world tour kicks off in Los Angeles in December, heralded a relaunch of her own singing career.

"We (Spice Girls) are not starting out again. We are not making a new album. We are celebrating the past. I want my kids to see mommy up on stage doing what I used to do.

"I am excited about the tour but I am certainly not using this as a springboard to launch any form of solo career," she said.

David Beckham's arrival in Los Angeles to begin a five year, $250 million contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy team is hotly anticipated both by U.S. sports and celebrity writers, although the Beckhams are much better known in Europe than in the United States.

Victoria said she thought the expected interest from Hollywood's paparazzi photographers would soon die down.

"They are probably going to realize that we are actually quite boring and that we don't do that much. We stay in a lot as a family and there are so many famous people in Los Angeles who are much more famous than myself and David," she said.
