Actress says she doesn't like her naked body

Kate Beckinsale is rumoured to have requested a body double for her new film Whiteout because she hates her body.

The script called for her character to be filmed nude in a shower, focusing in on her bottom and thighs, a source tells the Mail On Sunday.

Kate insisted on a double being hired. She was quite open about not liking her body and said she particularly loathed her bottom and was not comfortable baring it.

So producers forked out for £1,000-a-day stand-in to replace her.

In the past Kate has admitted that she struggles with her confidence.

‘Everybody is retouched, stretched, lengthened, slimmed and trimmed,’ she says.

‘I could look at a picture of myself from the past and think: “Why dont
I look like that now?” Its because I never have!’

Kate, 34, is married to director Len Wiseman. She has a 9-year-old daughter Lily with ex Michael Sheen.
