Kate Beckinsale was told she has no ‘edge’

Kate Beckinsale was told she has no ‘edge’
When she was young, actor Kate Beckinsale was told she didn’t have much “edge”. The Love & Friendship star began her acting career in independent British films and admits that had an effect on how people perceived her, reports ScreenDaily.com.

“When I began working outside of England, what I kept running into was, ‘She’s very British and delicate, she doesn’t have much edge’,” Beckinsale said.

The 43-year-old, who has a 17-year-old daughter Lily with her former partner and actor Michael Sheen, is thrilled with how Hollywood has progressed in recent years vis-a-vis female-led films.

She said: “The needle has moved. ‘Bridesmaids’ was a watershed moment. But now everyone just wants to make female comedies that make tonnes of money, it’s coming from a cynical perspective. 

“I believe in well-made films that are well-acted and directed. It’s important that everybody is represented.”

She will be seen in the fifth Underworld franchise, Underworld: Blood Wars which is slated to release in January 2017.
