Kate Beckinsale isn’t one to take herself too seriously, and because of that, her fans can relate to her more easily. Kate Beckinsale’s Instagram is full of funny, mocking photos that keep fans laughing either with her or sometimes at her. The Underworld star appears on the Shape Magazine cover this month showing there is nothing funny about her hard, toned body. The 43-year-old British actress appears on the cover dressed in tiny yellow bikini bottoms and a blue and black halter style top, showing her obvious commitment to staying fit and healthy.

In the article, the Underworld star confesses that she doesn’t really like to workout. The one thing that keeps her going back to the gym is how it makes her feel afterward. Beckinsale meets with celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson five or six times a week for intense workout sessions, which have helped her land on the front cover of the Jan/Feb 2017 Shape magazine. Beckinsale’s age may reveal that she is in her 40’s, but fans will be left shocked and jealous after seeing her cover shot for the health magazine. Beckinsale’s skin care routine, diet, and exercise all contribute to her beautiful toned body and glowing skin.

In a behind the scenes shot posted to Instagram, Kate Beckinsale is posing for the camera while working on the editorial for the magazine. Her sexy pose is thrown off by her hilarious caption for the social media pic. “It’s Monday morning. Sniff your armpit and then try to twist your own head off who’s with me @shape” This photo and caption show the British actresses sense of humor. After poking fun at the pose, Beckinsale admits that “hardcore workouts have really made a big difference in my life. I have a lot of internal energy, and intense exercise helps me channel that energy.”

The star also told Shape magazine:

“I do circuit training interspersed with brutal cardio, such as crazy things on a nonmotorized treadmill. That part is torture. But the thing I like about circuit training is that you’re never doing one thing for very long. You get to the point where you almost can’t bear it, and it changes to something else.”

Underworld: Blood Wars

Kate Beckinsale has been doing publicity rounds for the past month promoting her new Underworld: Blood Wars movie, which was released this past week. The London native has appeared in every Underworld film as a gun-slinging vampire death dealer named Selene. Beckinsale married Len Wiseman in 2004, who directed the first two Underworld films and produced all of them. Last Tuesday, Collider uploaded a video interview in which she expanded a bit on her character’s actions in the new film. As she described it, “this time we went much more into, kind of, her kind – emotional stakes, and it’s a much more vulnerable, sort of raw Selene than we’ve had before.”
