Kate Beckinsale Talks To Parade Magazine About Her Daughter And ‘The Hunger Games’

‘Underworld’ actress Kate Beckinsale sat down with Parade magazine to dish about being the mom of a teenage daughter (Lily just turned 13) and about reading the popular series ‘The Hunger Games’.

On life with a teenage daughter:

“I’m literally a couple months into that. It has been largely about Bar Mitzvahs lately! I had a child young enough that it doesn’t feel too far away from my own experience. I feel like I flunked at adolescence really badly. I found it really difficult. I’m very supportive of how tricky seventh and eighth grade are for girls. I think it’s a very difficult time, but she’s doing great.”

On her on-set relationship with husband, director Len Wiseman:

“The fist time we met each other was when we were filming Underworld, and then we worked together again after we’d been married a short while, and now we’ve been married seven years, so I’ve had quite a few different experiences along the way. It’s different each time. We love it. I think one of the things we like least about our jobs is that it can force separation from each other. One of the things that’s so nice about working together is that not only do we enjoy each other professionally, but we actually get to sleep in the same bed at night and hang out with our kid on the weekends, so it’s great. As far as any secrets I have to working together? I guess always argue over text so other people aren’t embarrassed!”

She’s a fan of The Hunger Games:

“Oh yea! Actually, my daughter’s school encouraged all the parents and teachers and students to read The Hunger Games, so it promoted a massive discussion of it. For some reason, my daughter was a little bit resistant to it at first, but then we just were all completely overwhelmed by it. It was actually this summer that we were all reading it and loving it. We can’t wait for the movie. It looks fantastic.”

Octavia Spencer’s Post-Oscar Goal: To Publish Her Children’s Books

Octavia Spencer is riding high after winning her first Oscar last Sunday at the Academy Awards ceremony.  The actress shared with E! that the next mountain she wants to climb doesn’t involve her acting career.

Octavia shared that she’s currently shopping around the kids’ book series that she’s working on:

“They’re books about sleuthing. I’m a detective by nature. I have one book written and two that are already being mapped out.”

“I’m a huge forensics person. I watch all the case study shows. I love them.”

Good luck to her!
