Kate Beckinsale Quotes 306302

When I first started working, I was very aware of the fact that I'd been to university and studied Russian and French and not acting.

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 2140843

I think you approach a part the same way and just find out in what's making them tick and who they are.

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 680451

What's considered ideal in Hollywood is completely different than anywhere else in the world. I don't think you can aspire to it, nor can I.

It's because I never have! — Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 827267

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 873896

I remember when I did 'Click' and I'd see Adam Sandler's fan base. He's the guy that people feel that he's their best friend, so he's walking down the street and people sort of high five him and want to tell him a joke or invite him to come home and have a sandwich with them. — Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 1032074

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 1065519

I find a lot of things kind of funny and I often say what's on my mind, and then get nine texts from all my friends going, 'What's the matter with you?'

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 1106295

It's frightening enough with a male actor and not a stunt person. If you accidently punch him with the wrong hand, then you've cost them a week's work and they've got a black eye or a lot of money goes on CG to get rid of it.

Men are quite happy for it to be your fault it seems like. — Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 1553929

I sort of ended up in Los Angeles by accident. And it was sort of terrible to be jostled into this position of a fame-hungry starlet. Which is so honestly not me! In fact, I could use a bit more of that because I am such a hermit! So I allowed myself to get really bothered. — Kate Beckinsale

I'm very blessed to have a husband who appreciates me. Women feel sexy from feeling attractive and desired. Men feel sexy from having sex.

My daughter comes with me everywhere. I don't leave her behind. But it is hard.

I feel incredibly lucky and blessed, but I do sometimes feel like that exorcist lady! — Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 2097523

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 2099066

Kate Beckinsale Quotes 2199047
