Hot dog! Kate Beckinsale has been simmering in the sun. The gorgeous actress looks sexier than ever in a bikini pic she posted this weekend. It’s very hard to believe she’s a 47-year-old mom! Let’s just say, fans took notice when she posted the pic.
Two lucky dogs posed with Kate Beckinsale while the crew was soaking up summer rays in Turks & Caicos. “Don’t mind us,” the actress captioned the post.
Vampire Slaying in a Feminine Way
Though she barely looks a day over 30, the 47-year-old beauty has had quite a career. Kate Beckinsale is best known for her role as Selene in the Underworld franchise, in which the young vampire warrior gets caught in a struggle between her kind and the werewolves. Kate’s vampire garb is nothing less than pure beauty.
Kate didn’t stop at one movie. The actress made it through four of Underworld’s sequels: Underworld: Evolution, Underworld: Awakening, and Underworld: Blood Wars. She never seems to age!
Though her time battling werewolves and vampires made her a star, Kate also sports several other hits in her filmography. In 2012, Kate starred alongside Colin Farrell in the remake of Total Recall, a sci-fi/action flick set at the end of the 21st century. Kate also appeared in the season-long TV show The Widow, where she played Georgia Wells, a woman desperately trying to uncover the mysterious disappearance of her husband.
Kate has had plenty of success in the film and TV industry, and fans can’t get over that she still looks so young.
Eating and Exercising Like She Means It
Kate Beckinsale is determined to stay in shape. Like every great body, the progress starts in the gym. Six days per week, to be exact. Working with her personal trainer, Siskind, Kate hits full-body exercises mixed with the right amount of cardio to keep her healthy, skinny, and ready for action.
According to her trainer, Kate Beckinsale does compound exercises at the gym that work out two muscle groups at one time, which keeps time in the gym quick and effective. After the intensive eight-exercise circuit, Kate hops on a rowing machine or VersaClimber for 90-120 seconds of cardio bliss. While others might use the time to rest, Kate wastes no time.
The Underworld actress repeats this routine a few times before heading over to a final cardio interval. She then finishes with some light stretches.
Of course, while the gym is important, her diet is important too. The actress’ meal plan is based on protein, greens, and, surprisingly “the occasional handful of potato chips.” Though it’s hard to say no all the time, Kate is extremely strict about caffeine and alcohol. She doesn’t have either! Don’t worry, she still allows her “guilty pleasures” every now and then.
Trying Out Different Relationships
Kate Beckinsale has had her fair share of drama over the years. From a short fling with comedian, Pete Davidson, to a decade-long relationship with her Underworld director, Len Wiseman, the brunette beauty has been in a number of relationships.
Kate’s first high-profile fling occurred in 1995 with her The Seagull castmate, Michael Sheen. Michael and Kate started dating while in the touring production. Though they never tied the knot, the couple did have their daughter, Lily, in 1999. Unfortunately, after Kate was cast in Underworld in 2003, the two ended the relationship. It wasn’t all lost, however, because the two are still friends to this day.
After getting over her eight-year relationship with Michael Sheen, Kate Beckinsale started dating Len Wiseman. They married a year later but separated in 2015. After Len, Kate has had some bad luck with men. From comedian, Matt Rife, to the actor, Jack Whitehall, there have been plenty of short flings in Kate’s past. Recently, the actress was spotted spending quarantine with Goody Grace, but the two split in October.
It seems unlikely that Kate will stay single for long. In the meantime, the Total Recall actress has her dogs (specifically Pomeranians) to get her through the drought.
