Kate Beckinsale has a smoking habit since she was a teenager.
It is seemed that the famous actress does not want to give up the smoking habit. The Underworld star has quitted smoking for three years when she was pregnant with her daughter well over a decade ago.
The English actress at the age of 39 was caught today smoking in her car after a shopping trip in Brentwood, Los Angeles.
The Van Helsing celebrity, being with her husband and film director Len Wiseman, was going to the car with many bags.
Kate Beckinsale wore casual clothes. She was dressed in a white singlet top and denim shorts, a grey cardigan draped over her shoulders.
She wore three-quarter-length leather boots with clasps, dark sunglasses and her long hair was gathered in a ballerina bun.
Kate and her husband had great many of shopping bags from the Brentwood Country Mart and a big bag from designer of high-quality clothes, James Perse.
From 1995 until 2003 Kate Beckinsale had relationship with actor Michael Sheen during 8 years. They have a daughter, whose name is Lily Mo Sheen. She was born in London in 1999.
It was just that period when Kate gave up smoking for three years.
Kate’s relationship with Michael Sheen ended in early 2003, after the filming of Underworld.
Beckinsale had convinced director Len Wiseman to cast Sheen in the film but, while filming, she and Wiseman fell in love. At that time Wiseman was married.
Richard Beckinsale, Kate’s father, who was as well an actor, died when she was five, and she attributes her early smoking addiction to the trauma.
Last year Kate said to The Sun in an interview that she did not have a good time in her teenage years.
‘I loathed being a teenager. If something traumatic happens when you are very young, it takes a long time to get used to it’, she said.
At the age of 16 the actress takes up smoking and according to her this habit is found to be very difficult to quit.
