You’d think Kate Beckinsale would be the last to suffer from body image issues. She’s a 10 and I’d pretty much kidnap her and chain her to my basement if it wasn’t already occupado right now. But, The Daily Mail says Kate asked for an ass double for her new film where she was supposed to get sort of naked in the shower.
But a source on her new film Whiteout said: “Kate has a terrible self-image. She thinks she is fat and she is always complaining how certain outfits make her bottom look big. Of course, the reality is that she has the most amazing body.
“The script called for her character to be filmed nude in a shower, focusing in on her bottom and thighs. Kate insisted on a double being hired. She was quite open on the set about not liking her body and said she particularly loathed her bottom and was not comfortable baring it.”
A last-minute call for a double went out on a Hollywood casting website last week for scenes that begin shooting tomorrow.
Silver Pictures advertised for a 5ft 8in brunette, weighing just under 9st. It added: “It’s a shower scene so there is no intimacy.”
“Kate just didn’t want to show her bottom, even though everyone on the set was saying how good it looks in jeans. She said she couldn’t face the thought of seeing her butt up on a big screen. She will have the final veto over who stands in for her.”
Kate Beckinsale is hot, but don’t tell her that because she’ll just think you’re bullshitting her. Apparently, not even poking her in the eye with your raging erection would convince her.
