Kate Beckinsale is the cover model of the latest issue of Flaunt Magazine, and nearly every shot in the Greg Lotus-photographed editorial seems to zero in on the “Underworld” actress’ long, lean limbs. Beckinsale poses in fashion from the likes of Chanel and Louis Vuitton, and for the accompanying interview, writer Maxwell Williams writes a fascinating dialogue about their afternoon together at the Santa Monica pier.
Beckinsale has appeared in a variety of movies, from “The Aviator” to “Pearl Harbor” and “Click,” and while musing about her more questionable career moves, she admitted, “Basically, the really big movies that I have done that suck have, for me, turned out at various crisis points in my life where I think, ‘Shit, I need to make sure I can take care of my kid.’ As simple as that.”
Another compelling Beckinsale quote concerns the recent theme in Hollywood of releasing remakes of previously successful film franchises or brands. “I do think it’s a shame that it’s hard for directors to get an original idea that wasn’t a comic or wasn’t a remake or wasn’t a game or something,” she said. “I think it’s very frustrating for directors in general and actors. You’re constantly finding yourself having to defend doing a remake when you didn’t really want to make one in the first place. If it was up to you, you would be doing your own original sci-fi. I know [writers and directors] have the ideas, it’s just [the studios] won’t finance it. What’s next? ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter: The Movie,’ because it’s a known franchise?”
