The Scream Queens of Film: Kate Beckinsale

October 3, 2012


 Kate is sexy…

Kate Beckinsale, London’s pride at 5’7” and stunning in her late 30s, started acting with her inception into adulthood.  Not surprising since both of her parents were British actors.  Since turning 18, she has hardly taken a break except in 2005 when, surprisingly, she had no releases, and 2010-2011.  The 2010-11 “break” was followed by Contraband, Underworld: Awakening, and Total Recall (all major 2012 releases that likely kept her busy in 2011).

Sassy…in Total Recall and Underworld

Keeping acting in the family she had her daughter (who has played her Kate’s younger self in Underworld: Evolution) in 1999 with fellow Brit and Underworld co-star Michael Sheen—and he has actually been in six vampire movies (three Underworld films and three from the Twilight saga) to Kate’s five (including stock footage in Rise of the Lycans) as a vampire and a vampire hunter.  Clearly their relationship didn’t work out because of her jealousy over this.  So then she married Len Wiseman in 2003.  Wiseman was responsible for all of the Underworld series and Total Recall.

Sultry…in Van Helsing

Her scream horror credits include Underworld: Awakening (2012), Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009; stock footage), Underworld: Evolution (2006), Van Helsing (2004), Underworld (2003) and Haunted (1995).  It seems they do a new Underworld movie every three years.  Maybe they should make that a little sooner since Beck is getting, well, up there—born in 1973, she was 38 in Underworld: Awakening.  But right now she’s filming Underworld 5 at 42 years old and I’m very excited to see her squeeze into her leathers again!

Saucy…in more of Van Helsing

In addition to simply crushing the vampire action movie scene, she kicked some serious ass (Colin Farrell’s, actually) in Total Recall (2012), her only remake so far, ran around in her snow Uggs in Whiteout (2009), and ran for her life in the contemporary slasher Vacancy (2007).  Back in 2002 she almost got the role of Rachel in The Ring.  That would’ve been cool, but Watts did a good job and she’s her own kind of hot.


I’m not her only fan.  Her “talents” have graced a lot of men’s opinions.  For example…

2002:  #63 in Stuff’s “102 Sexiest Women In The World”
2005:  #71 in FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World 2005”
2005:  #23 in Maxim’s Hot 100
2006:  #78 in FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World 2006”
2007:  #21 in the Maxim magazine Hot 100
2008:  #12 in FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women 2008”
2010:  #41 in FHM UK’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World”
2010:  #3 in Ask Men’s 99 “most desirable” women
2011:  #21 in FHM Australia’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World”
2011:  #14 in Ask Men’s top 99 “most desirable” women
2012:  #22 in Ask Men’s top 99 “most desirable” women

I’ve tabulated the votes and it’s official: Kate Beckinsale is hot!
