Kate Beckinsale Revealed What 'Pearl Harbor' Producers Forced Her & Ben Affleck to Do

Kate Beckisnale is on the cover of Women’s Health magazine’s January/February 2020 issue, on newsstands December 31.

Here’s what the actress had to share with the mag…

On what she puts in her body – including absolutely no caffeine and no alcohol: “I think some people’s systems are just a bit sensitive to things. If you told me you had nausea yesterday, I might start throwing up myself. If I ate too much dark chocolate, it would be like someone else taking cocaine.”

On being asked to lose weight for her role in 2001’s Pearl Harbor: “It wasn’t great. It didn’t make me feel good, and in general, I think women are body-shamed 100 million percent more than men. But on this particular project, I wasn’t. Ben [Affleck], who’d already done a movie with the director, was like, ‘This happened to me. They made me get new teeth.’ And I was like ‘Cool, at least I get to hang on to my teeth.’”

On relationships in the public eye: “If everyone’s shitting on you, it can make you kind of ugh for a minute – especially if there’s really nothing wrong. If you’re strangling a squirrel or hurting someone, I get it, but living one’s life in a reasonably respectful manner shouldn’t invite anyone to get too excited.”
