'Total Recall' Star Kate Beckinsale: I Didn't Feel Attractive Until I Was 29


Kate Beckinsale may be named one of the sexiest women alive, but she hasn't always been so confident about her body. Opening up to Allure Magazine, the 38-year-old actress reveals that she was insecure about her looks -- until she met her now-husband Len Wiseman.

"Feeling attractive didn’t come until I was 29 and with Len... At the time it was partly perceived as if I'd gone all Hollywood, but it wasn't like that at all," she said in Allure's August 2012 issue.

"It was just OK for me to walk around and feel feminine and attractive. I like feeling liberated like this."

But how does she really feel about aging in Hollywood?

Beckinsale is aging with grace and confidence.

"What is it about a woman being in her late 30s that brings out the 'Oh, my gosh, are you worried?' questions? Worried? What about? 38, 39, 40, 50! Great! Still alive!" she said.

She playfully added: "I haven't experienced a full facial collapse, I haven't suddenly gained 20 pounds that won't go away, or a beard. That probably will happen, but it hasn't yet."
