Kate Beckinsale Covers ‘Redbook’ Magazine

Actress and celebrity mom Kate Beckinsale is covering the January issue of Redbook magazine where she opens up about her unconventional family, motherhood, and doing nude scenes in her films.

On her time away from work: “I was at home. We’ve got a kind of unconventional family situation, with two dads, and I’ve always been the constant parent, the one who is here. Even if I’m working, it’s me. So if anything ripples the water, then it’s important to be home. My daughter is about to be 13, and I realize how fleeting time is. I was happy to be around Lily to talk about her day when she got home.”

On her unconventional family: “I think Lily feels comfortable with the family she has, and she’s very used to Michael [Sheen, Beckinsale’s first husband] being away…I’m not naïve enough to think that having separated parents has no effect on Lily. I’m sure it does. But she certainly has never heard me talk negatively about either of her dads.”

On nude scenes: “I think it’s worse nowadays, because you do something like that and somebody immediately makes a five-times as long feature on YouTube to rock music, and they play it over and over again. I’m not averse to doing a nude scene, but it would have to be something I felt I could really argue for in front of my daughter, and so far that hasn’t happened.”

Jillian Michaels Opens Up About Her Ongoing Adoption

Jillian Michaels graces the cover of Redbook magazine’s October issue where she opens up about why she chose to leave Biggest Loser after 11 seasons and discusses her ongoing adoption of a baby from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

On the two years it’s taken to adopt a baby from the Democratic Republic of the Congo:

I’ve watched friends congratulate me on [starting] the process, get pregnant themselves, have a baby, and then their baby’s crawling. People are lapping me. My best friend just told me she’s pregnant, and of course I’m ecstatic, but I’m also like, Uhhh! [gestures stabbing herself]. Like, I want my kid to be playing with your kids! It’s just a nightmare.

On How she decided to leave The Biggest Loser:

I’ve wanted to be in daytime television for a long time, because that’s where you can convey a message. On prime time, it’s like Jersey Shore and The Desperate Housewives of Some Dumb-ass County. It’s just train-wreck television. And it rates. [On The Biggest Loser] I would have long conversations with contestants about unearthing stuff from their past, and none of it would air. They grunt, they cry, I’m like, “You can do it,” they say, “I believe in myself,” and the scene’s over.

On whether she tried having a child naturally:

Turns out I had PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). But at a young age, I didn’t know if I wanted kids, so I didn’t really care. Then I got older, and I watched friends go through IVF, with years of hormones and devastation and disappointment, and I remember thinking God wants something different for me. If I choose to pursue this path, I’ll adopt. And when I was finally ready to go for it, I thought, This is going to be so easy. I am such an a—hole. I had nooo idea. I mean you’re just waiting…If it’s not done by this November, I’m going to take my shot with foster care.

On advice to women on facing their fear of change:

They have to trust. I can’t tell you how many people tried to talk me out of leaving [The Biggest Loser]. Everyone. People are really fear-based, and many have this monkey-bar approach to life, like you can’t leave one spot until you’re holding on to the next monkey bar. But by going straight to the next thing, you never get time to reflect or to create space for what’s right.

To read the entire interview, the issue hits newsstands on September 13.

Christina Aguilera Opens Up About Divorce

Christina Aguilera opened up to Redbook magazine about her split from Jordan Bratman and the difficult path that lies ahead.

It’s not easy, and there have been a lot of tears and sadness. It’s impossible to redefine yourself and your life overnight. Thankfully, I have my mom and a small group of close friends who are there for me 24/7 and whom I can trust and depend on. On days when it feels impossible to even get out of bed, much less function as a mother, their support and encouragement have kept me moving forward.”

She credits her son for helping her stay focused:

“Thankfully, I have Max to keep me on a sane path. His needs and happiness are my top priorities, and my biggest concern is to protect him and make him feel safe.”

Divorce isn’t easy on kids at any age, so hopefully they can work together to make the transition as pain-free as possible.
