Kate Beckinsale has been wowing us for years. She came to us as a nobody actress but made an impression costarring opposite Ben Affleck in Pearl Harbor that we just needed to see more. Since that movie, she has made quite a career for herself in Hollywood. For someone as gorgeous and talented as she is, it’s hard not to become an instant success. We know her from big-budget films such as Total Recall and Underworld: Blood Wars where she's been kicking some serious butt. We would never have been able to picture the shy girl from Pearl Harbor as a gunslinging vampire, but she sure proved us wrong. The Underworld franchise has been going strong for years.
Kate Beckinsale is 44 now and it’s really hard to believe because it doesn’t appear as if she’s aged a bit. Call it good genes, call it a great personal trainer, call it Botox if you will, we don’t care what this girl is doing because she looks phenomenal.
Not only is she a great actress, but this gal is quirky and funny. If you are not following her on Instagram, then you are missing out on a whole comedy corner. It’s often a treat to scroll through her feed and see what she is up to on any given day. Beckinsale truly has it going on and we have the fashion photos to prove it.
20 Kate Looks Chic At The Golden Globes
As we said, Kate Beckinsale looks like she hasn’t aged a bit. In fact, aging may just be doing her justice; some people look better in their 40s than they did when they were teenagers. Beckinsale definitely had an ugly-duckling stage and sometimes, looking back on those pictures, it’s hard to believe that it’s the same person. Kate and her ex-husband, Michael Sheen, have always been close over the years because they share a child together. So, it wasn’t surprising when she poked fun at his recent breakup with Sarah Silverman by sending her a bag of personalized M&Ms with the couple’s face on it? A little weird, but Silverman seemed to find it funny. “Been ending every night with a microwaved bowl of personalized M&Ms given to me by the very thoughtful and very cruel @katebeckinsdale to remind me that I'm alone in this world. 'So very alone. THANKS, KATE.”
19 Kate Talks Shop As She Poses For Pictures
We wonder who has her attention in the photo. We’re not sure, but she certainly has our attention in this awesome outfit while at the Moschino Spring Summer 2018 event this year. Is it pants, is it a dress? It’s all really hard to tell, but we love it. Beckinsale was seen recently on the set of The Widow with a prosthetic belly. She was filming her new drama series in Cape Town, South Africa for Amazon and ITV.
18 She Shows Off Her Stars For All The World To See
She is clearly a fan of black, as that is mostly what she is seen in, especially when it comes to her red-carpet look. We love this short little number on her especially with the stars on the top. She’s definitely got the kind of body that can easily pull off this outfit. People thought that Beckinsale was being a little cruel when she sent Sarah Silverman a bag of M&Ms after her breakup with Michael Sheen. Should she have sent it? Who knows. Everyone is extra sensitive these days and it was all meant for a good laugh. Silverman certainly considered it to be a joke and clarified that on social media before the hounds descended on Kate. “THIS WAS A JOKE!” Sarah clarified her comment as she had previously called Beckinsale “cruel” in a previous post.
17 She’s Showing Off Her Shoulders On The Red Carpet
Beckinsale should always wear dresses that show off her shoulders; she has the body for it. The great thing about having a tone and svelte figure is that you can totally show off your toned arms and shoulders when it’s time to go to events. We love seeing gorgeous shoulders on the red carpet. She is rocking navy at this event and is looking not a day older than 20. Although she is single these days, she never seems to have trouble finding hot guys to date. Her most recent relationship was with a 21-year-old Matt Rife. You know she is hot when she can pull in a guy half her age. We’re not sure how her teenage daughter felt about her mom dating a guy that would have been young enough for her to date, but all the power to you Kate.
16 She Brightens The Beach With Her White Bikini
Wouldn’t you like to run into this goddess on the beach? Beckinsale is notorious for keeping her body toned all year long. She is always in the gym and she has the body to prove it. For someone in their 40s, it is rare for them to have a tight and toned stomach, but Beckinsale has always had an amazing body. As you can see here, she doesn’t look like a woman about to turn 40. The only time that she stepped outside of her thin physique was to play Ava Gardner in The Aviator in 2004. She put on 20 pounds to play the role of the legendary actress. It’s not unusual of course, most actors will change their bodies somewhat for the right role. And how could she pass up the chance to work alongside Leonardo DiCaprio?
15 Kate Keeps It Casual For A Shopping Trip
When Kate Beckinsale goes shopping with her daughter Lily, she likes to keep it casual. We love the way that the loose tank top hugs her in all the right ways. She is wearing a silk floral wrap over the top of the tank and the combination is quite lovely. Aside from her sunglasses and ponytail, she could be on the red carpet right now. One thing that might shock you about Kate Beckinsale is that she’s never learned to drive. She just gets rides from here and there or at this point, her daughter probably does the driving for her. It’s very weird, but not at all unusual; there are just some people who are uncomfortable with the idea of driving a car that could be the cause of harming someone in an accident. At this point, we doubt that she will bother to learn.
14 Kate Loves Posting On Social Media
Seriously, as we said, if you haven’t checked out this girl's Instagram, then it’s an absolute must for you this year. This is just one of many foxy posts that you will see from the actress. She is always posting steamy shots and why shouldn’t she, she looks amazing. Not only are you likely to see steamy shots, but the gal is laugh-out-loud funny and the ridiculous things that she gets up to are pretty amazing as well. In this post, she is wearing a white dress that has the side showing off her elegant body. It’s really hard to find anything that Beckinsale looks bad in. She will often post foxy shots and then make wisecrack comments.
13 She's Fashion Forward
Laying comfortably in a dress, we have to wonder if this is a post that she made right before going out for the night. She certainly looks relaxed. She has over 1.5 million people following her on Instagram and trust us, there are 715 reasons why. The dress is very flattering on Kate and it’s not overdone or showing off way too much skin. It’s one of her more conservative looks and she looks wonderful in it. Considering her body, you would have to think that she has always worked out really hard for it. It turns out though she didn’t start working out until she got the role in Pearl Harbor. It required a bikini scene and Beckinsale wanted to look good in it. It’s likely that she’s always been a thin girl and just never worried about toning her figure.
12 A Blast From The Past In This Slit Dress
We can’t help but love this dress which is foxy with the slit going down the side. Just look at her incredible body. This, of course, is a blast from the past when she was at the premiere of Total Recall. Nothing is better than seeing this badass girl kicking butt in a movie. It just goes to show how little she has changed over the year. She is still gorgeous and her style is completely on point. The dress is well fitted to her body and the tall slit that surely draws a lot of attention to her amazing legs. She is one actress that looks incredible with this style. Another one is, of course, Jennifer Aniston, who always looks amazing in the slit dress. Regardless of the dress, Beckinsale is always a show stopper and her fashion has only got better over the years.
11 Kate Beckinsale Looking Foxy On A Night Out
If you ever thought that pairing a peasant top with a pair of leather pants would not look good, you would be dead wrong. Just because she has a thin body doesn’t mean that she always has to wear form-fitting clothing. This is a perfect example of a flowing top that looks amazing on Beckinsale. Not only do we get a glimpse of her foxy shoulders again, but we get a glimpse of some incredible fashion sense. Not everyone can pull off a ponytail for an evening out and look flawless, but Beckinsale can. You may not be aware that Kate wanted to be a writer before she decided to be an actress. She actually wrote things and won a contest doing so. When she was a teenager, she won the WH Smith Young Writers Award for both fiction and poetry. She’s definitely a triple threat.
10 Kate Beckinsale Is A Golden Goddess
It’s a good day indeed when we get a glimpse of Kate Beckinsale in something other than black. To think we started wondering if she was afraid of a little color. She looks amazing as usual and it’s not surprising that she can pull off a dress that cream colored. Last year the actress found herself on Jimmy Kimmel Live and she was as fashion-forward as ever on the show. She revealed to the talk-show host that her daughter had a crush on him. We’re sure that her teenage daughter just loved having that announced on national TV, but isn’t it a mother’s job to embarrass their children every now and then. How can you not have a crush on Jimmy Kimmel? He’s a good guy and a great family man! We need more men like him out there.
9 Kate’s Cats Are Just As Stylish As She Is
We’re not sure if this photo was staged, but Kate is looking a little feline herself in this photo. How chic does she look in this faux fur (we hope) jacket holding her kitty? The cat looks like it has some style to it as well, this is not your everyday house cat here. Like seriously did she styled its hair or is it wearing a hat, we’re not sure, but something is going on with this cat. She’s always been a pet lover and her cats are an important part of her family. We all feel that way about our pets though, don’t we? They are just a part of the family and we can’t imagine life without them. We definitely have to copy this style choice; it’s definitely got that wow factor to it because of the fur.
8 Kate Beckinsale Looks Flawless Hanging With The Cheetahs
Not too many people can look completely flawless and gorgeous while hanging with some cheetahs, but Beckinsale managed to. She decided to wear a silk halter top for the event and she looks like she’s likely dressed for an event, not the Cheetah Outreach program. She posted this photo on Instagram and she’s never looked better. “#tbt still not over how lovely this was. @cheetah_outreach take such extraordinary care of these babies who have been hand fed and played with, given lots of exercise and receive such love and care. We were perfectly prepared if they woke up and were frightened or not into it, to just tiptoe out again. We got luckier then we could have imagined.” Not only is she a gorgeous human being, but she has a heart of gold as well — she’s the total package.
7 She Shows Off Her Model Behavior
No matter what Kate Beckinsale is doing, whether it’s acting in a movie or modelling for a photo shoot, she manages to be breathtaking. Here she is in a photo spread showing off some sheer lingerie. Of course, we also have a fur jacket as well, and the whole look together is very sensual. We would love to go shopping with this girl. You may think that Beckinsale is just another pretty face, but you would be dead wrong. This girl has brains to boot. She attended Oxford University where she studied French and Russian literature, now those aren't fluff classes. She also spent her third year in University in Paris, France. It must have been an incredible experience. She did end up dropping out of the program to focus on acting. She obviously made the right choice because she became a superstar.
6 Kate Beckinsale Doesn't Mess Around On The Red Carpet
We cannot get over how amazing she looks in this dress. There is nothing more posh than a mermaid-inspired dress and this one is hugging her body nicely. Not only is it fitted, but it has a plunging neckline too. It’s certainly an A+ on our list. Did you know that Kate Beckinsale comes from a showbiz family? So, it’s no wonder that she chose to go into acting. Both of her parents were actors, so we know where she got the acting bug from. Her father, Richard Beckinsale, was a famous British comedy actor while her mother, Judy Loe appeared in many British sitcoms and dramas. They must be very proud of how far their daughter went in the industry, but it certainly makes a difference if you are willing to move to the United States to focus on your career.
5 Shine Bright Like A Diamond
Is that going too far? We don’t think so. After all, look how gorgeous she looks in this floor length gown. It may be floor length, but we still get a glimpse of Beckinsale’s amazing legs. This black dress is certainly a show stopper. Considering her funny antics on her Instagram, it’s a wonder that we don’t see more of that on the big screen. She’s clearly got a flair for comedy so why have we never seen her in a comedy. We think she should totally try that out for her next Hollywood gig. She could make an easy transition and win us over with her witty remarks. She proves that with this comment: “If someone had told me years ago that sharing a sense of humor was so vital to partnerships, I could have avoided a lot of s*x!”
4 No One Rocks A Halter Top Like Kate
This stunning halter top dress is the perfect outfit for Kate Beckinsale to show off her amazing shoulders. Kate Beckinsale is, of course, one of the girls that broke her silence when it came to Harvey Weinstein. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s brave as well. It’s never easy to go public and speak about things like that. She has been playing badass characters for years and she’s become really good at it. Apparently, she has got some talent when it comes to firing a gun. “Apparently, I'm very good at firing a gun without blinking, which is unusual. That's why so many action characters have to wear sunglasses during shoot-out scenes. That's my party trick.” That’s something that we never thought about, it's something to look out for in your next action movie.
3 If Anyone Can Rock A Poncho, It's Kate
Obviously, Kate is a beautiful woman there’s no denying that. But she wears her hair up a lot and she always looks smashing. We can’t get over it, many actresses will leave their hair down for an event, but more often than not Kate is wearing a high ponytail. It looks incredibly chic and it shows off her neck. It’s the perfect style for this plunging dress as well. One thing that you might find surprising about this actress is that she never drinks. Seriously, not even a glass of wine. She says that’s all part of how she stays youthful looking. “The secret to everything for me is doing yoga every day. It does do nice things for your body, but it also kind of calms you down and chills you out. Other than that, I don't really drink alcohol and I always take my makeup off at night!”
2 She Is the Belle Of The Ball
What a stunning ball gown. Again, she has her shoulders showing which is always a great look for her. We love it. This is one of the rare occurrences that we see her with her hair down and it looks magnificent. With drop earrings, she has never looked more stunning. We love the cheeky smile she is giving to the photographers. Be careful what you read about the actress because she has said that there is beauty info out there that just isn’t true. We would love to know all the ins and outs of how she stays beautiful. “Apparently, I get facials and manicures all the time. I read this and think, 'Oh, I wish I did that!' I don't think I've had a facial since I was 19.” We’re not really sure why she isn’t. Being pampered and going to the spa must be the best part about being rich and famous.
1 Kate Beckinsale Clearly Has A Favorite Color
It has to be, right? This girl most often wears black and will sometimes throw out a new color to keep us on our toes. Not that we are complaining. She looks amazing in this dress. Tell us this isn’t a dress that totally kicks butt on her. She is once again wearing a dress with a slit in the side and we are loving it. Kate Beckinsale loves dressing up and going to events but what she loves more is being normal. She has a great life, but it’s the small things that matter to her. “I can't tell you how many times I've gone to present at the Golden Globes, come home, whipped the dress off and read to my daughter wearing gazillion-dollar earrings. That's how it goes in my house, and I wouldn't have it any other way.”
