Kate Beckinsale Says Journalists & Actors 'Share Some Qualities'

Kate Beckinsale flashes a smile and tries to shield her face from the camera flashes while making her way inside Craig’s restaurant on Wednesday (April 22) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 41-year-old English actress was joined by her close friend Michelle Trachtenberg as they treated themselves to an intimate dinner.

Kate, who stars as a seasoned journalist in her upcoming film The Face of an Angel, recently expressed her thoughts about journalists and actors being similar.

“It was weird for me to be playing the journalist but I realized quickly how important it was for my character that people were giving her information. It isn’t just salacious, it isn’t just what she wore in court,” Kate told The Guardian. “And if we don’t have journalists we live in a police state.”

“It’s also true that journalists and actors share some qualities,” Kate continued. “Say you’re having a terrible argument with your boyfriend and you’re breaking up. For an actor there’s this still slight distance where you’re observing the event, thinking: ‘This is what it looks and feels like to be breaking up with someone.’ I think that journalists have that same ability to step back and see things from a different perspective. That doesn’t necessarily make the journalist an arsehole, any more than it does the actor.”
