Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentKate Beckinsale Bio – Smartasses Magazine Kathryn Romany Beckinsale (born July 26, 1973) is an English actress. Beckinsale is the only child of Judy Loe, who has appeared in a number of British dramas and sitcoms, and Richard Beckinsale, who starred in a number of popular British television comedies during the 1970s. She has a paternal half-sister, actress Samantha Beckinsale. She was educated at Godolphin and Latymer School, an independent school for girls located in Hammersmith, West London, and was involved with the Orange Tree Youth Theatre. Beckinsale read French and Russian literature at New College, Oxford, and was involved with the Oxford University Dramatic Society. She spent her third year of college in Paris, as part of her compulsory year abroad as a Modern Languages student, after which she decided to quit university to concentrate on her acting career. Beckinsale married American film director Len Wiseman in 2004. In November 2015, it was announced that she and Wiseman were divorcing.

Beckinsale made her first television appearance at the age of four, in an episode of This is Your Life dedicated to her father. Her major acting debut came in 1991, in a TV film about World War II called One Against the Wind. In 1993, while still in her first year at Oxford, Beckinsale received her biggest break in Kenneth Branagh’s film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. In 1997, she began to seek work in the United States, and rose to fame in 2001 with a leading role in the war film Pearl Harbor. Beckinsale broke through into more mainstream attention, after appearing as the vampire Selene in 2003’s Underworld, which was markedly different from her previous work. In 2012, she starred in the remake of the 1990 science fiction movie Total Recall alongside Jessica Biel. She has also worked occasionally as a model. In 1997, she appeared in the music video for George Michael’s Waltz Away Dreaming. Beckinsale also starred opposite Orlando Bloom in a 2002 Gap commercial. In 2004, she appeared in a Diet Coke commercial, and advertised Absolut Vodka in a 2009 print campaign. Beckinsale has also promoted Lux shampoo in a Japanese television advertisement.

Beckinsale once appeared in a Funny or Die skit which satirises the Republican Party’s War on Women. She supports the pro‑choice movement. In her teens Beckinsale twice won the W.H. Smith Young Writers’ competition. She has done charity work for The British Heart Foundation and in 2008, hosted the 4th Annual Pink Party to raise funds for the Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. In 2012 Beckinsale joined the Share the Joy of Reading Programme to raise awareness about the importance of children’s literacy. She has also donated film memorabilia to the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, MediCinema, Habitat For Humanity and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.

Why we think she’s hot:

With the astounding body of work under Kate Beckinsale’s slinky bat-girl utility belt, we here at Smartasses Magazine could probably be very monosyllabic when it comes to naming off all the reasons she’s been a veritable fanboy fave for well over a decade: Vampire. Catsuit. British accent. Purdy mouth. Underworld. But we all know there’s much more to Miss Kate than a sometimes-great sometimes-awful pseudo-Dracula film franchise. High on the list, would simply be her love of Doc Marten’s, but most walks of life would probably be more inclined to point out her unending list of charitable work, her adeptness at being able to take on any role from any genre and crush it, and of course her seemingly timeless beauty. All things being equal, we would also throw her fashion sense in the ring. If you’re looking for the gal who will probably garner the most pomp & circumstance at the most recent red carpet gala or premiere event, Beckinsale’s usually the odds on favorite to win the day.
