'LARRY KING NOW' CHATS WITH KATE BECKINSALE

Larry King With Kate Beckinsale



Acclaimed actress Kate Beckinsale sits with Larry King on the multi-Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” and discusses a wide variety of topics with Larry, including the fifth installment of 'Underworld,' the continued fight for pay equality in Hollywood, and the 2016 U.S. election. Also, in a touching moment, Kate opens up about losing her father, famed British comic Richard Beckinsale.



Kate Beckinsale gets candid about what it was like to lose her father, famous comedian Richard Beckinsale, when she was a child, and the impact he left on both her and all of Great Britain. She admits that she used to confuse her father with John Lennon and explains why she feels some ownership over John Lennon because, “It was 1979 when he died, and John Lennon was 1980, and the feeling in the streets where we lived was very similar, so in my mind as a child, I’ve had the two events confused.”



Kate Beckinsale discusses what it was like working under the direction of Anna Foerster in the fifth installment of “Underworld,” due out later this year. Kate described working with her, saying “She was great.” Larry noted that women normally aren’t associated with action movies, to which Kate responded, “I didn’t notice any difference, really.”



The “Underworld” actress discusses pay inequality in Hollywood, noting that she found when a woman is earning the most on a film, often times there is an air of resentment on set, as if that shouldn't be the case. She says “There is definitely pay inequality, for sure,” and that “when a woman is earning a good deal of money...if she’s earning the most on the set, that can create it’s own problems. I think that there is still a kind of psychological block that probably needs still a few years to be ironed out about certain people’s resistance to that.”



Kate Beckinsale also discusses the impact her hugely popular vampire vs. werewolf film franchise “Underworld” had on the creation of other similar movies, like “Twilight,” even calling her movie “the grandma of ‘Twilight.’ She explains, “Pre-Underworld, I guess what made them go for it was somebody walked into a room and said, ‘I’ve got a novel idea. How about we put vampires and werewolves in the same movie?’ and obviously now, vampires and werewolves are in every single movie and every single of everything.”



Lastly, British actress Kate Beckinsale gives her uncensored thoughts on the 2016 U.S. presidential election and says “I find it all quite terrifying. I thought it was a joke at first, and it turns out it’s not.”



Plus, Kate Beckinsale exposes that she is co-writing a new dark comedy screenplay, and Larry attempts to cast himself as the male lead. Larry and Kate also play a game of “You Only Knew,” where Kate describes a hilarious encounter with “Hamilton’s” Daveed Diggs, and reveals that she “sort of licked him on the face.”
