Kate Beckinsale Clears the Way for Actresses to Eat in New Orleans

Around this time of year, we have no problem eating too much and then dressing up. After all, you'll walk (or drink) off the calories on the parade route. But the bountiful food offerings in New Orleans apparently offer yet another roadblock in the tireless struggle of being a film actress. Kate Beckinsale's recent schedule required her to film the Wahlberg shoot-em-up Contraband here, then don a catsuit for Underworld: Awakening.


Like many of us, she found that New Orleans wasn't the best place to stay in shape because of the "beignets and all those wonderful things." "It's got the worst kind of 'Underworld' suit food, really," she told On The Red Carpet. Beckinsale eventually fit into the suit, however, proving once again that actresses can stay employed and eat at the same time.

Hey there, you got her name

Hey there, you got her name wrong, several times. It's "KATE BECKINSALE." There is no "D"in her last name at all. You also have her listed with three different (and all incorrect) last names: "Beckinsdale" "Beckinsadle"and "Beckinsadale". Proofread much?
