New Esquire Quiz & Photoshoot

You know Kate Beckinsale from films such as Van Helsing and The Aviator, and yet you don't really know her at all. Not by Hollywood's hyperintimate, "so that's what a C-section scar looks like" standards, anyway. The thirty-four-year-old British actress keeps her nose so darn clean -- she hasn't even had the decency to strike a paparazzo with her car -- that it's hard to feel close to her. A beautiful actress known only for her acting ability? What year is this? Ace this quiz and you can feel a little less guilty about ogling the photos above.

Major props to my reader Dan Murray for pointing these photographs out!

I almost blew an artery when I saw these shots. They're undoubtedly the most seductive and erotic shots of Kate that we've ever had the pleasuring of seeing. Can't wait to get a copy of the magazine myself!
