New Candid & Upcoming Stuff

New candid photo for you guys..

By the way, I also wanted to comment on the recent slowdown of Kate material. As is obvious, there's quite a slow down at the moment, but I will try my best to keep my blog updated with various topics (expect lots of pictures in upcoming posts..)

Common Complaint

Is Kate's husband, Len Wiseman, ugly?

Uh, well I am not going to answer that, because I am heterosexual male.

Anyhow, it would appear such discussion is a frequent among Kate Fanatics, comments such as "Kate can do better" and/or "Len looks like a bulldog" are indeed overly common. Such is not for me to say, but nonetheless it's interesting to hear what people have to say.

Another comment being "Len is certainly a "fit" guy, is she attracted to his physique or perhaps his character?". In any event, we will never know why and I personally, have no desire to know such. Whatever attraction she sees in Len is none of my business. As long as she's happy - I'm happy ;-)

Although I should mention, if the general female public do consider him to be less than attractive, I'll think even more admirably of Kate (if you understand what I mean).

Anyway, I apologize for the ridiculous topic, but it's been something hovering on my mind.

Move Over Kids

Thirty three is indeed a number of relevance, in fact it happens to be the age of our lovely Kate Beckinsale. It appears that number isn't a turn of either as we've recently seen Kate score highly on 2007 "sexiest" and "hottest" lists.

It truly is a feat and it's even more evident when you see the girls which have either lost out, or if not lost, at least been threatened by Kate on these lists. For example, take a look at the recent "top 100 hot" published by Maxim magazine where Kate nabbed the 21st position. Within the top thirty choices there are only about two other women around Kate's age (Eva Longoria, etc).

Now I'm not saying older women can't be sexy, because that is simply untrue, but the fact remains is that lists of these sorts often stray away from women in their forties and sadly, even thirties. Contrary to what they say, or we might think these lists are somewhat biased on the age of the individual.

As a result, when it comes to list as these Kate is often fighting off much younger women. As I've stated before, Kate and fellow British actress Keira Knightley, always seem to be jossling for a particular spot. The fact that Kate is twelve years older than Keira is quite amazing, and it further proves Kate is still wowing the crowds.

Mind you, I'm not meaning to implicate Kate is "old" by any means, but the fact is that she is able to keep up and even surpass the younger women on these lists is nothing short of an accomplishment. She should be mighty proud!

I'm glad to see Kate is still recognized as a "hotty" despite the fact that's she's getting older. Thankfully, Kate has aged like fine wine and she's tasting sweeter with time. She's still unbelievably sexy, gorgeous and stunning.

Terry O' Neill Shoot - 1995

Just twenty two years old at the time.

Pretty. I would be curious to see what Kate would look like now a days with such a hair style.

New Kate Candids - May 22nd

Here are some brand new candid photos from an airport (unfortunately I'm not sure of which one). As we can see, Kate is back to her natural hair colour and as we saw in the "Vacancy" interviews, the length of her hair is shorter than normal.

I had the opportunity to re-watch Serendipity yesterday and I must admit I had forgotten how good of a "chick flick" it is. Perhaps it's because I am older, but I appreciate the movie much more now than I did when I first saw it. Thinking it over, I think this is my new favourite Kate movie (as a result, I'd also goes as far as saying it's my favourite film in this genre)

I had also forgotten how good Kate's acting is in this movie.
And of course, It's always a pleasure to hear her British accent...

Sex Starved

Actress Kate Beckinsale has revealed there's no bedroom action in her house - due to her bloke's long working hours.

The Underworld star, 33, says her husband Len Wiseman, 34, has been so busy directing the new Bruce Willis film Live Free Or Die Hard, he's had no time left for getting steamy under the sheets.

'I've felt so lonely because Len has been a virtual stranger for several months now,' she says.

He basically only comes home to sleep.' The poor lamb's so frustrated she's planning on making him her sex slave for four weeks when the film's finished.

I've told him he's going to have to make it up to me,' she tells Sunday magazine. 'I won't let him out of bed for a month!' You go, girl! We women have needs, after all.

I suppose I don’t have to tell you Kate’s native origins are from Great Britain and that naturally, her parents are also from Britain. However did you know that Kate’s maternal grandfather is actually Burmese?

This Eastern Asian culture is based within Tibet and are thought to have originally migrated from Mongolia. This information tidbit is actually rather new to me, but I cannot say I’m overly surprised. I’ve always thought Kate had a very interesting pair of eyes and furthermore, a few exotic features to her overall face.

Perhaps merely a coincidence, but feel free to voice your opinion.

Take a look at this photo:

By the way, doesn’t she look gorgeous above? The only answer is “yes” ;-)

New Template

As is obvious, I've given my blog a new exciting template. Aside from that I've added a new picture of Kate on the side bar and implemented a "Google Video Bar". I've given it search criteria relating to Mrs. Beckinsale (Underworld Evolution, Van Helsing, Laurel Canyon, etc). It's easy to operate too, just click the video you desire to watch and scroll towards the top of my blog.

Meanwhile you can feed you're Kate addiction with this Van Helsing promotion interview from Entertainment Tonight ('04)

She looks nothing short of amazing here.

21st Hottest (Maxim)

According to the latest Maxim magazine, Kate is the 21st hottest woman of 2007. Just behind Kate were popular choices like Elisha Cuthbert and Sophia Bush, while just infront of Kate were the likes of Keira Knightley, Megan Fox and Avril Lavigne.

Genre & Acting

Once an actor or an actress falls into one particular genre of film it can surely be a hard thing to escape it. If you haven't already caught on, I'm talking about Kate's role in the "Underworld" films.

I don't think anyone would argue that is pretty much the staple of her career. Hell, I imagine if you ask most anyone who Kate Beckinsale is - they'd say "the chick from those "Underworld" films, right?". Or perhaps you might receive the answer: "oh yeah, the chick from "Van Helsing".

However it would appear with forthcoming movie projects, Kate is aiming to stay away from those action packed all-age films and focus on a more serious set of roles. The only thing I can say is "hell yes!" Now don't get me wrong, I believe Kate played an excellent part in the "Underworld" films. It not only helped her become more known as an actress, but as a result she was able establish a bigger fan base, more film offers and create an exciting franchise. Even I will admit to having great affection for the series (the first one in particular), because I believe it to be far cooler than the typical in this genre.

What could be cooler than a sexy and beautiful Vampire chick jumping through the air (in a leather cat suit) firing automatic rifles? And to cap it off, fighting off numerous Vampires and Werewolves. Now you've got to admit that is ultra cool.

However lets be honest, movie such as those are exactly known as the pinnacle of acting. In fact, films such as those don't really require "good" acting. So as much as I enjoy when Kate plays a kick ass part like in "Underworld", I am happy to hear forthcoming roles will put in her more venerable situation. I personally believe casual viewer of "Underworld" won't be able to recognize and/or appreciate Kate as an actress. Only Kate fanatics which have followed her through a great deal of career will be aware of her true acting abilities. Movies such as "TipToes" and earlier works prove that she is not just a pretty face - she really can act (and I want it proven even more so!)

As an actress, Kate is born with the natural instinct and I suppose it's a carried over talent given by her parents (also actors). In my opinion, she certainly makes the most out of every role (given the script and whatnot)

Again, thank God for upcoming films such as "Winged Creatures" and "Whiteout". Both films aim at delivering roles which Kate has never played before and the world, will get to see another side of Kate. I cannot wait!

Mark my words, her best has yet to arrive.

Odd Times

Kate always looks good. Even in such a picture as this:

A humorous picture no doubt, but also kind of sexy. By the way, if you never liked The Rolling Stones, now is the time to start ;-)

43rd Sexiest Woman

The results are in for Germany's FHM magazine regarding the 100 sexiest women in the world. The German public voted Kate Beckinsale as the 43rd sexiest woman in the world - a far cry from the 13th place which American voters placed her at.

What's also particularly interesting is that Jennifer Love Hewitt was also right behind Kate in the American poll.

Wearing Them Shades

It's no secret that Kate likes to indulge herself in the fashion of sunglasses.

I was looking through my candid photo collection the other day and noticed that in nearly every photo she was wearing sunglasses. She must have twenty or so odd pairs..

See for yourself:

Ok.. so that's twelve pairs. But they're are a few which I didn't include, so in reality it's about sixteen pairs.

Judging on the various candids it appears this is her favourite pair:

My personal favourite pair would be:

So there you have some useless, yet somewhat fun information =)

Winged Creatures Distributor

Kate's new movie, "Winged Creatures" recently received a new distributor.

Peace Arch Entertainment Group has acquired worldwide distribution rights in all media to the feature film "Winged Creatures," starring Forest Whitaker, Jennifer Hudson and Jackie Earle Haley. The cast of the ensemble drama, directed by Rowan Woods ("Little Fish") also includes Guy Pearce, Kate Beckinsale and Dakota Fanning.

"Winged Creatures" will be offered for sale at the Cannes Film Festival by Julie Sultan, Peace Arch executive vp of international theatrical film sales.

The film is written by Roy Freirich and produced by Robert Salerno. It concerns the survivors of a senseless multiple murder who are left to cope with their own mortality and their connection to society.

Peace Arch Entertainment president John Flock said, " 'Winged Creatures' is an extraordinarily moving work that exemplifies the type of high-quality independent feature that Peace Arch is now supplying to worldwide markets. As we head into Cannes in two weeks, we believe 'Winged Creatures' will be one of the most sought-after titles at the market, and with our newly expanded sales team we anticipate great success for both our filmmakers and our shareholders."

In "Winged Creatures," though commonly linked by a life-changing tragedy, the survivors of a senseless multiple murder are each left to divine their own path to understanding their personal mortality and their connection to society.

On a side note. I've posted a new blog post on my personal blog pin pointing some of my other favourite female celebrities. If you're interested, check here

A (Very) Young Kate

Ever wondered what Kate Beckinsale looked like when she was just eleven years old? You probably didn't.. but anyways:

Even with a twenty year gap between these photos, the resemblance is obvious.

In the text in which the photo originates from, Kate adressed the question: "When I Grow Up I Want To Be".

She answered: "Either an actress or a writer." Ironically, she completed both of those goals.

Devilish Charms?

I thought this would be an interesting topic for not only my readers, but for myself to explore.

I've seen more than a handful of comments across the internet which identify Mrs. Beckinsale as ignorant, rude or foul mouthed. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I am here to defend Kate and express my opinion on the matter.

Ignorant or rude? Well if you think she is, it's not for the purpose of being a "bad ass" by any means, its more for the sake of speaking her mind. For as long as I've followed Kate I have learned she isn't afraid to speak her mind and doesn't really care how others perceive her in the media.

One of the strongest examples is back in 2003 when she was interviewed on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I'm sure the Los Angeles folk weren't too happy when she remarked the sentence "In London we have cabs, in LA you have cars full of murders" There's a golden comment if I've ever heard one. Although honestly, I can see how one might see that comment as being ignorant or rude, but pardon me - I laughed. Of course, what makes that comment even more ironic is that she currently lives in Santa Monica.

Of course, it does not end there, because Kate is also known for "naughty" comments.

How about the great breast incident on Jay Leno's, The Tonight Show? This is where she claimed she was great at breast feeding and could, I quote: "hit the wall from quite a distance"

Once again, I can see how one might interpret her attitude as foul mouthed. But then again, she isn't about to apologize for being "politically incorrect", or for not being the "usual" celebrity. Kate only plays one role when she's off the movie stage - herself.

Anyhow, I think the real reason she said that was to be funny, and it worked. I don't see how anyone could honestly say they did not laugh or at least smile at what she said.

On the subject of "shocking" (thanks to Dan Murray for bringing my attention to this particular quote)

"Kate says she strips for her director husband (Len Wiseman) on a webcam when they are working apart. (December 13, 2005)"

I imagine every male who just read that is smiling.

And yet, when she says things of such nature, she doesn't sound like a tramp. She sounds like Kate Beckinsale.

I personally think her up-front, "say what I want" attitude is extremely sexy. Any woman who has the confidence to say any of the above comments in the public eye (with movie star status) is downright cool

She has my respect, entirely.
