Let’s just say this isn’t exactly what you’d expect from a presumably “aging Hollywood actress,” who by the way, is supposed to be way past her prime after celebrating her 44th birthday earlier this summer. Kate Beckinsale must be feeling very young & sexy earlier this morning as she posted a photo from 2012 featuring herself laying on a bed while pulling one of her legs over her head. You gotta love her fearlessness (#YoGoGirl)!

Wow, is there anyone in Hollywood (aside from Meryl Streep and similarly aged women) that Harvey Weinstein didn’t try to bang over the years? It’s extremely ironic that a man in his situation has a four daughters aged 7, 14, 19 and 22-year-old Lily Weinstein with whom he got into a heated argument this morning—to the point that the police got involved.
Earlier this morning, the powers of social proof finally overcame Mt. Kate Beckinsale and the 44-year-old English actress took to Instagram with her own story of how Harvey Winstein tried to get into her pants when she was 17. You can read Kate’s comments below.
BOOK IDEA: Want to become an instant NY Times bestselling author? Go around Hollywood Hollywood and compile an anthology of similar harassment stories because obviously there’s a huge audience who are thirsty for more! Just think about how many other actors and producers will be outed in the process!
I was called to meet Harvey Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel when I was 17. I assumed it would be in a conference room which was very common.When I arrived ,reception told me to go to his room . He opened the door in his bathrobe . I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older ,unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him .After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left ,uneasy but unscathed.A few years later he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting .I realized he couldn't remember if he had assaulted me or not .I had what I thought were boundaries – I said no to him professionally many times over the years-some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a cunt and making threats, some of which made him laughingly tell people oh "Kate lives to say no to me ." It speaks to the status quo in this business that I was aware that standing up for myself and saying no to things,while it did allow me to feel uncompromised in myself,undoubtedly harmed my career and was never something I felt supported by anyone other than my family.I would like to applaud the women who have come forward , and to pledge that we can from this create a new paradigm where producers,managers,executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said " well, that's just Harvey /Mr X/insert name here " will realize that we in numbers can affect real change.For every moment like this there have been thousands where a vulnerable person has confided outrageous unprofessional behavior and found they have no recourse, due to an atmosphere of fear that it seems almost everyone has been living in .I had a male friend who, based on my experience,warned a young actress who said she was going to dinner with Harvey to be careful. He received a phone call the next day saying he would never work in another Miramax film ;the girl was already sleeping with Harvey and had told him that my friend had warned her off.Let's stop allowing our young women to be sexual cannon fodder,and let's remember that Harvey is an emblem of a system that is sick,and that we have work to do.

The always-beautiful Kate Beckinsale was seen doing some shopping at Barney’s NY in Beverly Hills for some lucky people on her holiday gift list. It’s probably the way she carries herself, but Kate always has a way of looking like a million bucks even when she’s dressed in seemingly simple clothes. The actress was seen clutching her two iPhones as she left the store after making a small purchase.
The star-studded 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards (visit the official website) were held at the The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica last night and, believe it or not, but I actually watched a few minutes of it.

As we’ve said over & over through the years, Kate Beckinsale will look amazing in pretty much anything.

The woman is 42 and still killin’ it, so congrats to Kate.
