Great Kate! Kate Beckinsale and daughter Lily have been enjoying some R&R in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico — and in new poolside photos, the 39-year-old actress revealed the stunning rewards of her strenuous, butt-kicking work in action films like Total Recall and Underworld: Awakening.
Wearing a black bikini top and skimpy white bikini bottoms on March 28, the sunglasses-clad British brunette showed off her flat abs and toned arms and legs. Also remarkable? The striking similarity between Beckinsale and 14-year-old Lily, her only child with ex Michael Sheen. One day earlier, Beckinsale chatted with Lily — who has her mother's porcelain skin, dark locks and delicate features — as she texted a pal in a lounge chair.
How does the nearly-40-year-old star maintain that jaw-dropping figure? It's not easy — particularly since she's not a huge fan of working out, and typically scales back in between training for her intense action roles.
"I just can't make it part of my daily life. I go to the gym when I have to, and if I have to bulk up or slim down for a film, I will," she told ELLE UK. "I've recently got back into exercising four times a week. I run for half an hour at a time but never outdoors as I don't exercise in public. My gym's in my garage at home."
The stunner is also still adjusting to life as a parent to a teenager, she told Allure last year. "I haven't been embarrassing [to somebody] before, . . . I can't dance at a party where there are teenagers without [them] clearing the dance floor."
