Kate Beckinsale’s Family
Some may be surprised to hear that Kate Beckinsale spent the holidays with her ex-husband and his girlfriend, but she said that she feels very lucky that the three of them get along. Beckinsale and Sheen share a seventeen-year-old daughter, whom Silverman has a relationship with as well. Kate Beckinsale told Standard that “I really love his girlfriend as well and we are lucky we both get on, and Lily gets on great with her — having as many strong females in your teenage daughter’s life as possible is a good thing.”
After opting for mainly movie roles for the past two decades, Beckinsale is now planning on spending more time in Britain for work. The actress told Standard that “My mum did quite a lot of theatre when I was little and I did find that tough,” which is why she always did movies to be close to her daughter, Lily. However, now that’s she’s pretty much grown up, Beckinsale feels ready to return and act in other projects. In fact, Lily has expressed an interest in acting herself. When asked what she thought of her daughter getting into the same business as her, Kate Beckinsale said: “I don’t love the downside of it for my baby. But it’s not like she hasn’t seen her parents having a real experience of what it’s like.”
Kate Beckinsale Dressed Like a Christmas Tree at CCA 2016
In preparation for the holiday season, Kate Beckinsale showed up to the Critics’ Choice Awards 2016 with a dress inspired by a lit-up Christmas tree. Attending the award show on December 11 in Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California, Beckinsale set out to turn heads with her dress of beaded details that shined so bright, they could be lights on a Christmas tree!
The actress, who was nominated for her role in Love and Friendship, wore a Reem Acra gown with a plunging neckline covered by black mesh that extended up to her neck. The dress had short puff sleeves, and the beaded detailing was concentrated from her bust to her waistline, and then dispersed all the way down the gown. Beckinsale paired her stunning dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, Mimi So jewelry, and a Rauwolf clutch. She wore her hair in a high ponytail, leaving some strands out to frame her face. Keeping her makeup and accessories beautifully simple, Kate Beckinsale’s dress took center-stage. Other stars that attended this red-carpet event included Leslie Mann, Judd Apatow, James Marsden, and Hugh Grant.
