File this under crazy: Kate Beckinsale thinks her ass is too fat, and has made the producers of her latest film, Whiteout, hire a butt double for a scene in which we were supposed to see Kate Beckinsale nude in the shower. I'm really not sure why, but apparently Kate has body issues, especially about her ass. Although it would seem she has good taste in asses, since the butt-double was paid $2000 a day, reports The Daily Mail.
Producers have had to hire a Â£1,000-a-day nude stand-in after Kate, 34, refused to bare her derriere in a shower scene.
A source on her new film Whiteout said: "Kate has a terrible self-image. She thinks she is fat and she is always complaining how certain outfits make her bottom look big. Of course, the reality is that she has the most amazing body.
"The script called for her character to be filmed nude in a shower, focusing in on her bottom and thighs. Kate insisted on a double being hired. She was quite open on the set about not liking her body and said she particularly loathed her bottom and was not comfortable baring it."
The source explained: "Kate just didn't want to show her bottom, even though everyone on the set was saying how good it looks in jeans. She said she couldn't face the thought of seeing her butt up on a big screen. She will have the final veto over who stands in for her."
How's that for disappointing. Kate is obviously one of those girls who just tries to get compliments by talking about how fat she is. But why don't you judge for yourself by taking a loot at her ass in these Kate Beckinsale bikini pictures. These shots are from a couple years ago, but unless Kate has taken to eating Cheetos, Britney-style, I think they're probably still an acurate representation.
