Daughter of celebrated and sadly-missed British comedy actor Richard Beckinsale, Kate Beckinsale has rapidly achieved greater worldwide fame than her father. She made her acting debut while studying French and Russian literature at Oxford University, and a couple of years later, as the roles began to pour in, she decided to give up her studies and concentrate full time on an acting career.
We can only thank the Fates for that. Without it, we may never have seen her petite booty strutting around in the tight-fitting leather outfits of movies like Underworld and Van Helsing. Kate has been quite sparing in baring her body, but if the role really demands it, as you can see by our video clip, she hasn't been shy of going naked. Oh yeah!
