“It’s not like a naked, porno, mud-wrestling-in-a-bar sort of fight — it’s a real fight,” she said. “I did find that fighting a woman was very different from when I’ve fought men. There was a lot of ‘I didn’t hurt you, did I? Ooh, I’m sorry about that! No, it was my fault!’”
Despite her action scenes as an adult, Beckinsale wasn’t always so athletic. “No one ever thought, ‘I must have Kate on my team.’ To me, you only went to the gym if you were really weird and obsessive. No one I knew in London at the time ever did it.”
