The Underworld star, Kate Beckinsale graces the July cover of Women’s Health showing off her toned physique! But, Kate wasn’t always all about getting it tight and toned.
Despite her toned display on the cover of the magazine, Kate admitted that she was never much of a gym person when she was younger.
She told Women’s Health that she wasn’t ever the first pick when it came to gym class, she said:
I wasn’t particularly athletic. No one ever thought, “I must have Kate on my team.” To me, you only went to the gym if you were really weird and obsessive. No one I knew in London at the time ever did it.
Now known for her on screen appearances in various action packed films, the English actress spoke about her fight scene in Total Recall with Justin Timberlake‘s soon-to-be-wife Jessica Biel.
Beckinsale admitted that filming her fight scene with Jessica Biel in Total Recall was:
Beckinsale quipped that the fight in the movie wasn’t made for fans to droll over and told how it’s an actual fight between the two starlets.
It’s not like a naked, porno, mud-wrestling-in-a-bar sort of fight – it’s a real fight.
The Van Helsing actress said that she found the experience of fighting Jessica Biel differed in comparison to fights she’s filmed in the past:
I did find that fighting a woman was very different from when I’ve fought men. There was a lot of “I didn’t hurt you, did I? Ooh, I’m sorry about that! No, it was my fault!’
The mother-of-one who is married to director Len Wiseman told Women’s Health that she is enjoying everything that life has to offer her.
It all just unfolds and I think, well, that’s who I am now.
