Kate Beckinsale has revealed she was originally going to play the three-breasted prostitute in the new 'Total Recall' film.

The actress agreed to make a guest appearance as the woman because her husband Len Wiseman was directing the action remake.

However she pulled out of the decision as she was worried about how she'd look with the extra asset.

Kate told The Sun newspaper: ''I was going to do a cameo as the three-breasted woman! I started fretting about where they'd put the third one. Have I actually got room for a third one in the middle, or would it go to the side?

''Would it then be under an armpit and actually not sexy?''

Kate eventually got the leading role as a bad secret agent in the movie, and Kaitlyn Leeb being cast as the mutant prostitute.

Kate admitted she has been stunned by the excitement over the return of the character.

She added: ''I have been quite surprised about that, especially in the age of people watching porn on their cell phones. It seems like, if you wanted to, you could find a woman having sex with any kind of animal in about one second.''
