Beautiful And Sexy Kate Beckinsale (60+ Photos)
Kathrin Romary Beckinsale born 26 July 1973 (age 43), in Chiswick, London, England. She is famous English actress and model. Beckinsale decided at a young age she wanted to be an actress: “I grew up immersed in film. My family were in the business. I quickly realised that my parents seemed to have much more fun in their work than any of my friends’ parents.”. She was inspired by the performances of Jeanne Moreau.
In 1993, Beckinsale landed the role of Hero in Kenneth Branagh’s big-screen adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. She attended the film’s Cannes Film Festival premiere and remembered it as an overwhelming experience. “Nobody even told me I could bring a friend! I had Doc Martens boots on, and I think I put the flower from the breakfast tray in my hair.” Peter Travers of Rolling Stone was won over by her “lovely” performance while Vincent Canby of the New York Times noted that she and Robert Sean Leonard “look right and behave with a certain naive sincerity, although they often seem numb with surprise at hearing the complex locutions they speak.”.
Kate Beckinsale has worked occasionally as a model. In 1997, she appeared in the music video for George Michael’s Waltz Away Dreaming. She starred opposite Orlando Bloom in a 2002 Gap television advert directed by Cameron Crowe. She appeared in a Diet Coke television advert in 2004, directed by Michael Gondry. She advertised Absolut Vodka in a 2009 print campaign photographed by Ellen von Unwerth. She has also promoted Lux shampoo in a Japanese television advertisement.
The British Heart Foundation has been Beckinsale’s charity of choice “ever since she was six years old.” She has also donated film memorabilia to the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, MediCinema, Habitat For Humanity[ and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. In 2008 she hosted the 4th Annual Pink Party to raise funds for the Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and organised a screening of All About Eve for Film Aid International. In 2012 Beckinsale joined Nestlé’s Share the Joy of Reading Program to raise awareness about the importance of children’s literacy.
