SNATCH star VINNIE JONES is in the grip of bizarre obsessions similar to those that affected soccer star DAVID BECKHAM's life. The footballer turned movie star has admitted he can't sleep until he's sure not one leaf is floating in his swimming pool. He keeps his shirts in colour co-ordinated order and feels angry if furniture is an inch out of place.
Vinnie, 35, says, "I can't go to bed until everything is spotless and in it's place." The hard man, who has moved from his native Britain into a $3 million (£2 million) Hollywood mansion adds, "I feel sorry for David because he is going through what I suffer from. "It calms me knowing there is no crime and disorder. It makes me feel in control."
