Kate Beckinsale Talks Fight Scenes With Jessica Biel In Women’s Health Magazine

Kate Beckinsale stars in the remake of ‘Total Recall‘ covers the July/August issue of Women’s Health Magazine and in the interview the actress talks a lot about fighting and how she got that super amazing body of hers! Here’s a few excerpts from the magazine;

Kate on her fight scene with Jessica Biel in her upcoming film Total Recall…
“It’s not like a naked, porno, mud-wrestling-in-a-bar sort of fight—it’s a real fight.”

Kate on the differences between fighting a man and a woman…
“I did find that fighting a woman was very different from when I’ve fought men. There was a lot of ‘I didn’t hurt you, did I? Ooh, I’m sorry about that! No, it was my fault!’”

Kate on not knowing how to run when starting to film 2003’s Underworld…
“I could run if a bear were chasing me, but I ran like a girl with my arms like this [flails arms]. The day they asked me to try a few punches, it was dismal. All I could see what despair in the stunt coordinator’s face.”

Kate on switching from intense gym workouts to yoga-based routines…
“I’d gotten particularly sick of being photographed outside a gym doing a squat with a medicine ball.”

Kate Beckinsale Gets Ready For Another Day Of Filming

After getting prepped in hair and make-up, actress Kate Beckinsale looked more than ready for another day of shooting in Pasedena on June 12.

The British beauty has been busy filming The Trials of Cate McCullough in the SoCal city and yesterday afternoon, Kate seemed eager to shoot her next scene.

Although the film won’t hit the silver screen until next year, as a big fan of Ms. Beckinsale, I’m enticed to see what the flick has in store.

Kate Beckinsale Hangs Out On The Set

Kate Beckinsale looked camera-ready as she hung out on the set of her upcoming flick, The Trials of Cate McCullough, in Pasadena yesterday.

The brunette beauty donned not one, but TWO costumes as she filmed multiple scenes around Pasadena’s City Hall on June 5. Kate first sported a blouse and dress slacks as she chatted with co-star Nick Nolte, but later changed into a black suit with a pair of Louboutins to boot.

Though the film won’t be released until 2013, with an all-star cast on board, it could possibly be one of next year’s “must-see” movies!

Kate Beckinsale Covers Parade Magazine; Talks Motherhood & Marriage

Actress Kate Beckinsale dishes with Parade Magazine on working with her husband Len Wiseman, raising her teen daughter Lily Sheen, and on her love of reading.

On life with a teenage daughter:
“I’m literally a couple months into that. It has been largely about Bar Mitzvahs lately! I had a child young enough that it doesn’t feel too far away from my own experience. I feel like I flunked at adolescence really badly. I found it really difficult. I’m very supportive of how tricky seventh and eighth grade are for girls. I think it’s a very difficult time, but she’s doing great.”

On her on-set relationship with husband, director Len Wiseman:
“The fist time we met each other was when we were filming Underworld, and then we worked together again after we’d been married a short while, and now we’ve been married seven years, so I’ve had quite a few different experiences along the way. It’s different each time. We love it. I think one of the things we like least about our jobs is that it can force separation from each other. One of the things that’s so nice about working together is that not only do we enjoy each other professionally, but we actually get to sleep in the same bed at night and hang out with our kid on the weekends, so it’s great. As far as any secrets I have to working together? I guess always argue over text so other people aren’t embarrassed!”

On her love of reading:
“I grew up as an only child and my mother was also an only child, so we were both very passionate about reading. I think I passed that on to my daughter, who went plowing through Harry Potter and every other book possible! I just think especially in this day and age when you’re constantly fighting the pull of the Internet and television, there’s something about reading that is an active thing for children to do. It opens up their world completely and improves their vocabulary and they can use their imagination. I’m quite old fashioned about things like that, and I really do believe it’s terribly important.”

On her favorite books as a kid:
“I loved all the E. Nesbit books like Five Children and It and The Enchanted Castle. As I got older, we had a real craze in our country called The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, which everybody was really into. I was reading Jane Eyre when I was 11 and I loved that. Actually, my daughter read Jane Eyre when she was 11, too. I wasn’t very frightened of classic novels. I feel like my brain is more geared towards a novel than it is to a movie. “  

She’s a fan of The Hunger Games:
“Oh yea! Actually, my daughter’s school encouraged all the parents and teachers and students to read The Hunger Games, so it promoted a massive discussion of it. For some reason, my daughter was a little bit resistant to it at first, but then we just were all completely overwhelmed by it. It was actually this summer that we were all reading it and loving it. We can’t wait for the movie. It looks fantastic.”

How did Kate Beckinsale and her hubby Len Wiseman kill time before the Oscars? By shopping till the drop, of course!

On Feb. 26, the brunette beauty and her main man were spotted browsing around a local boutique in Pacific Palisades. While Len sipped his Starbucks and walked around the store, Kate picked out a few new pieces for her wardrobe.

And by the looks of these pics, it seems that Kate’s shopping spree was super successful!
