Aside from playing the wife of a good-hearted smuggler in the thriller “Contraband”, Beckinsale also is known for her role as a vampire warrior in the “Underworld” series. For the role of Selene, the dark and powerful hero of the underworld, the actress wears a skin tight leather catsuit. In the past, this wardrobe choice hasn’t given her too much heartache. But after a few month stay in New Orleans, she started to get a little nervous. The costume hides hardly anything, even that extra bowl of gumbo. She commented,
"It's got the worst kind of 'Underworld' suit food, really. So it was a miracle. I guess having had a lot of training for the first one, thank goodness, it wasn't quite as extensive as that but there were still a lot of complicated fight scenes to learn and stunts I hadn't done before and just the sheer terror of getting back into that suit, which is a bit like a put your bikini on and stand in Times Square kind of feeling”.
After seeing Beckinsale at the Golden Globes… we hardly think she has ANYTHING to worry about!
