Kate Beckinsale - Kate Beckinsale: Lily's 'Twilight' Obsession Almost Ruined Christmas
Kate Beckinsale's daughter Lily was so obsessed with 'Twilight' that her fixation almost ruined Christmas.
Kate Beckinsale's daughter almost ''ruined'' Christmas because of her obsession with the 'Twilight' franchise.
Thirteen-year-old Lily - from Kate's previous eight-year relationship with Michael Sheen - was so fixated on the books that they once dominated the whole of the festive season.
Kate explained: ''She read 'Twilight' and was completely obsessed with them. It actually almost ruined Christmas one year because all she wanted to do was be a vampire and she didn't want anything on her Christmas list.''
Like her daughter, Kate loves to read and says it is a habit she inherited from her own mother.
Joining forces with The Nestle Share the Joy Reading Programme for National Reading Month, she told US Weekly: ''I've been very obsessed with reading since I was tiny.
''My mum was a big reader and very much imposed reading on me and I'm the same with my daughter, who's a huge reader.''
The 38-year-old actress - who married film maker Len Wiseman in 2004 - read to Lily, ''every night for 11 something years'' until it became ''a little less appropriate'', and even made it all the way through the Harry Potter books.
She added: ''I did read the entire Harry Potter, which, you know they got pretty long in the end. We did all that and that was a really fun thing for us.''
