Check out some excerpts from her interview with mag:
On not feeling attractive until she was a 29-year-old: “I didn’t feel very attractive as a child, and actually I wasn’t. Feeling attractive didn’t come until I was 29 and with [my husband] Len [Wiseman]. Maybe it has to do with not having had a dad. I’d never experienced a father saying, ‘Oh, you look good.’ If you have a good relationship with your dad, you have a chaperone in your own mind. I love my stepfather, but it’s different with a stepfather. I probably waited until I had that feeling with somebody who was so madly attracted to me that I could sort of relax and aim it at him. And then it kind of exploded, and all of a sudden I was the sexiest woman alive.”
On not getting caught up with having been named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’: “I think the risk of being the sexiest woman alive is that you don’t want to ever have sex again. You don’t want to wear a bikini again. You want to wear some nice overalls and a trucker’s hat. Anyway, you’re only that for a year, and then you’re done. You’re old news. I don’t know who it is right now, but it’s not me.”
On husband Len Wiseman: “He’s a very gentle soul,” Beckinsale says of her husband, director Len Wiseman. “Everybody who’s worked with him is sort of astonished by what a sweetheart he is. He doesn’t yell. And, you know, directors of the kinds of movies he does normally have to yell at somebody just to blow off steam. I find it impressive that someone can have that much responsibility and pressure and never seem to take it out on somebody.”
On avoiding risque material for her daughter’s sake: “Well, I haven’t done an awful lot of nude scenes. And I’ve been somebody who has had a child for a very long time. Most of my peers don’t have a 13-year-old. And it’s embarrassing. My daughter said to me, ‘You know, I’d really love it if you never said the word “vagina” in an interview again.’ Whoops. I’ve just done it.”
