This year’s “sexiest woman alive” Kate Beckinsale will be hitting the silver screen alongside her 10-year-old daughter in the upcoming dramedy Everybody’s Fine. Apparently, Kate’s hoping that Lily’s first acting job will crush her dreams of wanting to be a Hollywood actress.
“Maybe it’ll put her off – all the hanging about and bits being cut out of the movie. I really don’t think she actually wants to become an actress so I may be in a fool’s paradise, I did say the same thing when I was a little girl!”
“The producers harassed me for a long time saying ‘can she audition?’ and I said no because she would probably be on the set anyway, if she auditions and doesn’t get it then she’s going to feel horrible. Eventually she got wind of it and asked if she could and she got it fair and square.”
To be more accurate, I guess I shouldn’t say that Kate is appearing “alongside” her daughter — her daughter is actually playing Kate’s character as a young girl.
Although Kate’s not the first superstar to say that they don’t want their kids to grow up to be celebrities, she is one of the first to say that directly after helping their child start a film career. Hmm.
