Kate Beckinsale insists she doesn't always look good and needs a whole ''village'' of people to help her get ready for public events.
Kate Beckinsale needs a "village" of people to help her look good.
The 38-year-old actress - who has a 12-year-old daughter Lily with former partner Michael Sheen and is married to director Len Wiseman - insists the way she looks on the red carpet takes a lot of effort.
Kate credits yoga for maintaining her trim physique - but says she only took it up because of the relaxation time at the end of each session.
She admitted to Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "There's a carrot at the end - I get to lie down for 10 minutes. If that part didn't exist, I wouldn't do it. .
"I always hated the idea of it - yoga and golf are similar in that people can become obsessive and boring about it. I never thought that would be me, but I do feel a lot better [for doing it]. And a happy side effect is that it lifts my bottom."
