Your lifestyle, your quirk
After reading abstracts from her recent interview with the August edition of Glamour magazine, I’m sold on Kate Beckinsale. She is the whole package: a gorgeous face, a body to die for, and – here’s the real kicker – a common sense, down-to-earth attitude. This trifecta is rare in Hollywood.
Looking at Kate rockin’ the cover and inside photo shoot for the magazine, it’s hard to believe she turns 39 this month. Really hard to believe. The actress and mom has her sultry look down pat, as her long brown locks cascade down past her shoulders, giving her a soft and beautiful look.
Clearly, Kate takes care of herself, but she also has some great genes to be thankful for.
“My mother was very, very beautiful. She still is, in her sixties,” Kate told Glamour about her 65-year-old mother, Judy Loe. “I’m sure she feels, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if my neck did this?’ but not to the degree of cutting parts of herself off and dragging them behind her ears. I feel very similar. I much prefer how my mother looks to the people I see here [in Los Angeles] with wind-tunnel face.”
Kate has lived in Hollywood for ten years, so she can certainly spot a fake face or body part when she sees one.
“I feel like beauty is a gift that you have for a while, and you enjoy the hell out of it while you have it. And if you’re lucky enough to have a daughter and you give it to her, you enjoy the fact she has it,” said Kate.
Kate has a 13-year-old daughter named Lily Mo Sheen with her former partner of eight years, actor Michael Sheen.
Kate also shared her thoughts on the pressure for actresses to return to their usual weight as soon as possible after birth. “There’s an obsessional hatred of normal human processes. Pregnancy changes a woman’s body and should. It isn’t normal to not look like you’ve had a baby immediately after you’ve had a baby.
Kate continued, “I was gigantic after I had Lily – I put on a good 3 ½ stone [49 pounds], and it didn’t go ’til I stopped breast feeding ... I was lucky that Britain wasn’t so paparazzi-orientated [then]. I was allowed to get on with it and enjoy my baby – and figure out what being a mother was all about instead of worrying about [fitting into] my f**king jeans.”
Who wants to bet that Kate just made a fan out of Jessica Simpson, who is facing extreme scrutiny for gaining “too much weight” in her recent pregnancy?
