when listening to an interview with David Beckham and his wife the interviewer said to them "one plus one equals three" and what she ie the interviewer meant was "SUCCESS".

Is "one plus one equals three" a proverb or an idiom or what?

I guess you could say that it is a saying. It describes "synergy." Here's a good description of "one plus one equals three": http://www.smithfam.com/news2/synergy.html

Here's one about Beckham but not said by Beckham:

"The firm now boasts a glittering global roster of sports and cultural icons, from English soccer king David Beckham to Chinese-born basketball giant Yao Ming, with licensing deals for all the major U.S. athletic leagues to boot. Says NPD's Cohen: "Adding these two parts together, it really is an equation in which one plus one equals three."
