Kate Beckinsale Says She's Not Tough as Nails Like Her Characters

Kate Beckinsale looks absolutely stunning while posing for the cover of the late spring issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine’s new issue.

Here is what the 42-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the public perception of her from playing tough as nails characters: “It is an enormous privilege to be one of the few women who gets taken seriously in a franchise like that. I don’t regret it for one second. [But they’re roles that] have sort of become what people think I actually am like—which is ludicrous to everyone in my life! I suppose it’s a backhanded compliment to the believability of the character, [but] I’m not sure that my career necessarily reflects my sensibility as much as I would like.”

On forcing herself to get out for a night on the town: “Because I was an only child for a long spell, I literally could stay inside with a pile of books for an indefinite period of time—to a dangerous degree. Like a hermit. I really could do that. Once I’m out, I usually have a nice time. It’s just the going in which I have to be kind of forced. I’ve got enough people that I like and run into, and then I have fun. I’m actually pretty good at having fun.”

On going from romantic comedies and period dramas to Selene in the Underworld franchise: “There was something that was very liberating about having to become very, very good at stuff very quickly, with no experience—I’d never fired a gun or thrown a punch. It still doesn’t feel like my comfort zone. I still feel like a huge fraud in that area.”
