Kate Beckinsale and Marcia Cross Want Bookish Kids

Shy-butt actress Kate Beckinsale and unisex bathroom supporter Marcia Cross were both recently spotted out at book stores with their families.

Cross took her toddler daughter Eden to a bookstore in Brentwood while out shopping. They’re never too young to start with Dr. Suess.

The newly self-accepting Beckinsale is slightly hipper when choosing daughter Lily Mo Sheen’s reading material. Beckinsale and husband, director Len Wiseman, accompanied Lily to a comic book store in Santa Monica to hang out amid the stacks.

Hey, every hit movie in existence right now pretty much started as a comic book.

And Wiseman’s a movie director of such hits as Live Free or Die Hard and Underworld. He was probably looking for some new source material.
