Kate Beckinsale is one of the most high profile actresses in Hollywood, but she keeps her priorities balanced by never being away from husband Len Wiseman, and daughter Lily, (from her relationship with ex-husband Michael Sheen,) for too long.
Beckinsale, 35, told OK! Magazine,
“She [Lily] has two fathers, and two sets of grandparents and iChat. I put her to bed every night and had breakfast with her every morning and went home almost every weekend, so I think the key is not to be away for longer than five weeks.” [Kate added], “We got through it pretty unscathed. It’s a struggle, you know? Sleeping is what goes by the wayside.”
Rod Lurie, director of her new film, Nothing But the Truth, was very impressed by Kate’s commitment to her family,
“I must say Kate is very inspirational to watch with her parenting. Every candid photo we have of Kate, she’s texting her daughter. It’s unbelievably lovely and sincere. To see the joy that’s in her eyes when her husband and her child came on the set is fantastic,” Rod said. “As a dad, it’s really very nice. I’ll make a movie about it.”
Her film, Nothing But the Truth, is currently showing at the Toronto Film Festival.
