Kate Beckinsale Keepin’ It Real; Cruises Around WeHo in a Pontiac Grand Am

Kate Beckisale out in West Hollywood, CA

Wow, you don’t normally see beautiful Hollywood actresses like Kate Beckinsale getting into a fifth generation Pontiac Grand Ams, but to would’ve been really cool if this was Kate’s new ride. From the looks of the photo it appears Kate is bumming a ride from one of her not-so-well-off friends. The 39-year-old actress, who hits the big 4-Oh later this summer in July, was catwalking around Melrose Ave. with a friend.

In the arena of films set to hit theaters in 2013, Kate’s going with the low-budget drama “The Trials of Cate McCall,” which stars also Nick Nolte and James Cromwell. There’s no exact release date yet, but look for it to surface late in the year. Here’s some plot action:

A former hotshot lawyer, now in recovery and estranged from her family, in order to be reinstated at the bar and recover custody of her daughter, must take on the appeal of a woman wrongfully convicted of murder. [IMDb]
