We can’t help but think this English actress has a close resemblance to the elegant Duchess of Cambridge. Same name but different Kate, Beckinsale proves to be a face of poise and grace. Born on July 26, 1973, she was practically welcomed into royalty — or Hollywood royalty, that is — as both of her parents were actors. At the age of four, she made her first television appearance, which would decide her destiny as an actress. In 2001, Beckinsale emerged on the big screen in what would be her big break in the film Pearl Harbor. Ever the acting chameleon, she has starred in films of many genres, ranging from romantic comedies like Serendipity and Click to action movies like Total Recall and Underworld.

Aside from the large success of Underworld and its sequels, Beckinsale’s celebrity relationship was also affected by this film. She and fellow actor Michael Sheen had been a celebrity couple for eight years prior to filming when she fell in love with Underworld director Len Wiseman. Wiseman and Beckinsale celebrated their celebrity marriage in 2004 and have since remained friends with Sheen, with whom Beckinsale shares a daughter, Lily Mo. It’s hard to keep mum about celebrity relationships in Hollywood, but she continues to do so with poise and grace.
