Kate Beckinsale has a spread in the new issue of Mean magazine. Oddly enough, I’m aroused. She talks about wanting to drop children out of windows, likening raw fish to vagina and orgasms? Wait, what?
On her lack of sleep as a new mother:
“I remember turning up on the set of Pearl Harbor and all the boys had been to boot camp and I had a 14-month-old baby, and had been told that I had to be in the gym four hours a day. On top of the not sleeping and all this physical activity, the boys kept saying, ‘Wow, it was so tough, you have no idea.’ I remember thinking to myself, ‘You went for five days, I haven’t slept in 14 months. You want to go toe to toe?’ ”
On the responsibilities of being a mother:
“Babies show up as themselves. I really do believe you can f*** a person up terribly by being a bad parent, but they arrive kind of 80 percent baked, and that 20 percent is crucial, but they do show up with personality.”
On the appeal of raw food:
“I can’t do raw. I can’t do sushi, even. Anything that has that vaginal quality to it. I’d rather an actual vagina than that, honestly.”
On the inspiration for high heels:
“Apparently, during orgasm, a woman’s feet move like this [makes tiptoe gesture], and that’s the reason they invented high heels. So next time you’re having an orgasm, pay attention to your feet and you’ll see.”
Interviews are usually dumb, but this is awesome. Can you imagine Kate talking dirty? I bet it sounds both erotic and delectable.
Kate Beckinsale: The perfect woman? Yes, Kate Beckinsale: The perfect woman.
