Beckinsale Relieved To Make It To 32

Hollywood beauty KATE BECKINSALE couldn't wait to reach the age of 32, because her actor father RICHARD died of a heart attack when he was just 31. The PEARL HARBOR star feared her "card was marked" after losing her dad in 1979, and admits hitting her 32nd birthday last year (05) was key in helping her move on. She says, "When I turned 32 - a year older than my father got to - it was a very liberating moment. "I felt I'd made it to 32 and I was doing a comedy with everyone being really nice to me. "It felt like I'd arrived at an important landmark and could now live the rest of my life. I hadn't realised how much it was weighing me down. "My mother's mother died very young as well, so I couldn't help wondering if my card was marked in some way too."
