Kate Beckinsale Celebrated Her Birthday

Sandra Bullock wasn’t the only celeb to have a birthday yesterday. ‘Total Recall‘ star Kate Beckinsale also celebrated her birthday yesterday. Happy Belated Birthday! Kate turned 39. She had what looks like a quiet birthday dinner at Little Door restaurant with her husband, Len Wiseman.

Is that Kate’s teenage daughter, Lily, with the purple hair? She’s not identified in the pictures, but they’re holding hands (you can see in the gallery). If that is Lily, it looks like she’s going through an “experimental” phase- LOL. Kate looks FAB in those black leather pants. Go Kate!

Kate Beckinsale Enjoys A Shopping Spree With Her Hubby

It sure seems like Kate Beckinsale enjoyed her afternoon shopping spree! On July 9, the Total Recall actress and her director hubby, Len Wiseman, hit the shops in SoCal.

The doting duo picked up a few things at the James Perse boutique before they wandered around the Brentwood Country Mart for a bit. Hmm, I wonder what Kate purchased yesterday? Something for her daughter Lily, perhaps?

Kate Beckinsale Debating Having Another Child

Kate Beckinsale has one child, a 13-year-old daughter named Lily, from her relationship with actor Michael Sheen. The ‘Total Recall‘ star has been married to Len Wiseman since 2004, and Kate admitted in an interview that she’s debated whether or not she wants to have a child with him.

“At some point the decision will be made for me, when my ovaries dry up and die [Kate will be 39 this month]. We’ll see. There’s nothing that makes me go, ‘And now I must have triplets.’ I got back and forth on it. I feel very lucky in that we navigated a pretty bumpy situation and that Lily’s OK. So my resistance is along the lines of, ‘Do I want to upset the apple cart?’ There’s absolutely part of me that goes, ‘I’d love to have a baby in the relationship I’m in, and have that experience when the relationship’s really good and exclusive,’ but I’m just not sure.”

Kate said she put on baby weight with her first pregnant.

“I was gigantic after I had Lily. I put on a good [50 lbs.], and it didn’t go until I stopped breastfeeding … I was lucky that Britain wasn’t so paparazzi-orientated then.”

Besides the whole issue of whether or not to have a child, Kate is fine with aging. Her father’s death at the age of 31 gives her perspective (Kate was five when he died).

“Aging is going to happen and it should. My father died at 31, so to me, aging is extremely preferable to the alternative, which is not aging. Every year I get past 31, I think, ‘Thank God.’ It’s a gift to be able to go, ‘I look different, that means I’m not dead!’”

Now that’s a great perspective to have!

Hot New Trailer: Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale & Jessica Biel In ‘Total Recall’

Here’s a new trailer for the ‘Total Recall‘ reboot, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. Colin, Kate and Jessica all look like they MORE than hold their own in these action sequences: the three of them look like they all did an amazing jobs! My only big question is: how much were they influenced by ‘Star Wars’? I look at those Total Recall people and just think Imperial Storm Trooper- LOL

When I think of actors who could replace Arnold Schwarzenegger, I never would’ve imagined Colin. I guess no one has those super pumped-up bodies that the 80s action heros had, so that’s the issue, but Colin looks like he does a great job playing the guy who’s mind has been horribly played with. I’m going to be seeing this! How about you?

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.”

You can read the rest of Kate’s interview starting tomorrow online here.

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!
