A post shared by Kate Beckinsale (@katebeckinsale) on

The A-lister has opened up in the past about her enviable physique, and the punishing diet and fitness regime she follows to stay trim.

Opening up to Shape Magazine, Kate, 44, spoke about her attitude to exercise.

She said: “I start out absolutely dreading it, do an incredibly punishing workout, bitch about it the whole time, and end up feeling 100 per cent better when I leave.


She continued that her and daughter Lily, 18, her only child with ex-partner Michael Sheen, follow a simple food plan.

She says: “Lily and I eat clean – we have a lot of sauteed vegetables like brussels sprouts and broccoli and chicken and fish.

“Also I don’t drink alcohol. I feel [its effects] very quickly, so I’ve never actually had an entire glass of anything alcoholic.”

Soldier’s Widow: Rep. Wilson ‘100% Correct’ About Trump’s ‘Insensitive’ Call

The widow of a fallen U.S. soldier killed in Niger this month appeared on Good Morning America, speaking publicly for the first time since his death and the subsequent media firestorm over President Trump’s “insensitive” sympathy phone call. Myeshia Johnson, widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, explained to George Stephanopoulos that on that phone call, “the president said that ‘he knew what he signed up for but it hurts anyways’ and it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it.” She continued: “He couldn’t remember my husband’s name. The only way he remembered my husband’s name because he told me he had my husband’s report in front of him and that’s when he actually said La David. I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband’s name and that hurt me the most because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risks his life for our country, why can’t you remember his name?” Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), a family friend and mentor of the solider’s, famously overheard the call and told the media it was “insensitive,” leading to an ongoing feud with the White House, in which Trump called her a “liar.” Johnson finally addressed that spat, telling ABC: “Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated. What she said was 100 percent correct… Why would we fabricate something like that?” Trump responded to Johnson later Monday in a tweet, writing: “I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!”

6 Things to Know About Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s Younger Son Who Is Now Dating His Brother’s Widow

When it comes to former Vice President Joe Biden‘s children, the most recognizable name is that of Beau Biden — his elder son, who passed away from brain cancer in May 2015.

But now, it’s his younger son, Hunter Biden, in the spotlight. This week, Hunter confirmed that he’s dating Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother, Beau.

“Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time, and that’s been obvious to the people who love us most,” Hunter said in a statement to The New York Post’s Page Six column.We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”

Here are six things to know about the son of the former vice president — and one half of the country’s currently most-talked-about couple.

1. He survived the car crash that killed his mother and sister.

On December 18, 1972, 2-year-old Hunter was in the car along with his mother Neilia, and his brother Beau, then 4, and sister Naomi, 13 months, when their car was hit by a tractor-trailer in an intersection. The accident killed Neilia and Naomi, and left both Beau and Hunter severely injured: Beau with broken bones throughout his body and Hunter with a fractured skull. Both boys recovered completely after a long hospitalization.

2. He has an incredibly close relationship with his father — and had the same with his brother.

The accident occurred just weeks after Joe was elected to the Senate for the first time. Though he initially considered abandoning the seat, the future vice president took the oath of office at his sons’ hospital bedside and went on to serve in the Senate but famously took the train home to Delaware every night so he could be with his sons. Joe’s dedication as a parent continued throughout his children’s upbringing, creating an intense, “uncomplicated” bond between Joe and his sons, as well as between the brothers.

“Family comes first. Over everything,” Hunter said of the lessons his father taught him in an interview with Popular Mechanics. “I can’t think of anything that has been more pervasive and played a larger part in my life than that simple lesson. And as you said, he didn’t have to teach it by saying it. It was just in his actions. After we lost my mom and my sister in the accident that my brother and I were also in, he was ever-present. Commuted every day back from Washington.”

Hunter was also a political adviser to his later brother, Beau, who served as Delaware’s Attorney General from 2007 to 2015. Joe said that he too has leaned on his sons for advice and support throughout his political career.

“His brother never made a speech and I never made an important decision without consulting with the other two,” Joe told Popular Mechanics. “We’ve been a team. I know that sounds strange to say as a father. But it’s been one unit. Right to the very end.”

3. He was discharged from the Naval Reserve for drug use.

Hunter’s life, though, hasn’t been without more troubles. Unlike his brother Beau, he never formally enlisted in the armed forces (Beau served from 2002 to 2015, including a deployment to Iraq.) However, he was selected as a direct commission officer in the Naval Reserve, as a public affairs officer in May 2013, according to NBC News.

One month after he was officially commissioned, Hunter was discharged in February 2014 after testing positive for cocaine use. The discharge and the reason behind it were not made public until later that year, in October. When the discharge was announced, Hunter said in a statement that he was “embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge” and called his brief stint in the reserves “the honor of my life,” according to the New York Times

4. He’s a lawyer and an Ivy League graduate.

Hunter, who has worked as a lobbyist and in private equity in the past, earned his bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University, and then went on to graduate from Yale Law School. He’s still a member of the bar in Connecticut and Washington, D.C.

5. He was named in the Ashley Madison leak.

In August 2015, when the now-infamous leak of data from Ashley Madison — a dating website for people seeking extramarital affairs  — occurred, Hunter’s name was among those listed as registered users. The listing also included an email address that he had previously used, but claimed that he had stopped using it after, he said, he was hacked.  Ashley Madison does not verify users’ emails, so an account could be set up with someone’s name and email without them knowing, according to The Hill.

Hunter vehemently denied that the ever registered for the website.

“I am certain that the account in question is not mine,” Hunter said in a statement at the time. “This account was clearly set up by someone else without my knowledge and I first learned about the account in question from the media.”

6. He’s in the midst of an explosive divorce.

Hunter separated from his wife, Kathleen in 2015 and the couple filed for divorce late last year. The divorce proceedings carry some explosive allegations. In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Kathleen alleges that Hunter has been “spending extravagantly on his own interests,” which, she says, include drugs, alcohol, strip clubs, gifts for other women and prostitutes.

The documents also state that the family has “shocking and overwhelming” debts including tax debt, maxed-out credit cards, and double mortgages on multiple properties.

Hunter’s attorney, Sarah E. Mancinelli, told PEOPLE in a statement: “Hunter and Kathleen have been separated for some time and are in the process of finalizing a divorce. Hunter loves and admires Kathleen as a person, a mother, and a friend. He hopes their privacy can be respected at this time.”

Stop Telling Me How To Be A Widow

Before you start tossing around the “H” word ― hussy, the brazen variety ― let me assure you that I deeply loved the man I was married to. But 10 days after his death last month, I became that cliche: The new widow who runs out and buys a hot red car.

This car, she’s a beauty. She came fully equipped with all those high-tech bells and whistles; she listens to my voice and actually does what I tell her ― something my late husband, rest his soul, never did with any regularity. She has a panoramic sunroof that highlights the red in my hair and hell, she even parallel parks herself so that I won’t get stressed out having to do it.

I first laid eyes on this red bad girl around New Year’s when my husband was in a nursing home. The kids and I were breaking up the awfulness of caregiving by stopping in at car dealerships and pretending to be in the market for a new car.

And there she was. She was primping and staring at her reflection in the windows of a dealership and I swear she nuzzled up against my leg and began purring. “Trust me,” she whispered in my ear, “we’re going to let the good times roll again.”

But widows, we’re supposed to be the women in black, right? We are expected to hibernate inside our houses and turn down social invitations. Wait for at least a year for just about anything that is remotely fun, and for the love of all things holy, think about your kids. A widow doesn’t wear makeup because she gets mascara owl eyes when she cries, the assumption goes, and she must be always crying. 

Somewhere in the “how to be a widow” manual, I’m sure there is a caveat that expressly forbids buying a red car 10 days after you bury your spouse.

I would like to propose that it’s time to rewrite that manual ― all of it. 

Grieving has been treated as a one-size-fits-all life event for too long. Widows are told not to make any major life decisions because presumably, we are so emotionally fragile and distraught that we can’t think straight. We are expected to weep, be angry at life for claiming our loved one, and feel ongoing sadness that costs us our appetite for living.

Widows are expected to act like, well, widows.

What the widows’ manual doesn’t take into account is that many of us come to widowhood by way of caregiving. We have already spent months or years becoming widowed gradually, long before the date on the calendar now circled in black.

Those of us who have spent time in the caregiving trenches have battle scars that need to heal, and that’s a different animal than straight-up grieving.

We have spent countless sleepless nights standing vigil by hospital bedsides. We have changed diapers, handled sharps, and emptied catheter bags. We have fed, dressed, bathed and managed medicines for our loved ones. We gave shots and cleaned up disgusting messes that we still struggle to unsee. 

And pretty much every one of us has, at some point, questioned our sanity, and prayed to everything including the crash cart that the suffering and ordeal would soon end. Ours, as well as our patients’. What caregiver hasn’t unabashedly cried in public, hoping that some stranger would notice and take care of us for a change? Even now, when I type the word “bed” in a phone text, autofill finishes it as “bedsores.” When I type the word “nurse,” autofill makes it “nursing home.” And when I type the word “insurance,” well, the word “fucking” pops up after it. 

We emerge from the caregiving experience as different people. Some of us stronger, many of us diminished. But for each of us, caregiving took a toll. Caregivers miss work, lose sleep, don’t eat right and carry around the stress of the world ― and then, in the end, we learn that not even our deepest love is any match for death. Death always wins.

Then it becomes up to us to figure out what comes next.

In my case, the caregiving takeaway was this: Life is too short, and a healthy life is even shorter. I don’t want to waste a single minute of my healthy life. I have places I want to see, conversations I want to have, books I want to read, foods I want to savor, and yes, I have more love in my heart that hopes to find a home.

My plan to honor my recently deceased BFF is to not stop cherishing what we had together, but to also have the best rest-of-my-life possible. And the hot red car? Consider it my calling card.

The Sari Shop Widow

The Sari Shop Widow


Pungent curry. sweet fried onions. incense. colorful beads. lush fabrics. Shobhan Bantwal’s compelling new novel is set on the streets of Edison, New Jersey’s Little India, where a young businesswoman rediscovers the magic of love and family. Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia has devoted herself to transforming her parents’ sari shop into a chic boutique, brimming with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Now, ten years later, it stands out like a proud maharani amid Edison’s bustling Little India. But when Anjali learns the shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, she feels her world unraveling. To the rescue comes Anjali’s wealthy, dictatorial Uncle Jeevan and his business partner, Rishi Shah-a mysterious Londoner, complete with British accent, cool gray eyes, and skin so fair it makes it hard to believe he’s Indian. Rishi’s cool, foreign demeanor triggers distrust in Anjali and her mother. But for Anjali, he also stirs something else, a powerful attraction she hasn’t felt in a decade. And the feeling is mutual. Love disappointed Anjali once before and she’s vowed to live without it-though Rishi is slowly melting her resolve and, as the shop regains its footing, gaining her trust. But when a secret from Rishi’s past is revealed, Anjali must turn to her family and her strong cultural upbringing to guide her in finding the truth. Praise for Shobhan Bantwal and her novels. “Compelling and memorable.” -Mary Jo Putney on The Forbidden Daughter “Vivid, rich. expertly portrays a young woman caught between love and duty, hope and despair.” -Anjali Banerjee on The Dowry Bride “Splendidly depicts passion, brutality, and cultures in conflict.”-Dorothy Garlock on The Dowry Bride”The Dowry Bride is an eye-opener to the challenges many Indian women face in a culture few foreigners comprehend. -ArmchairInterviews.com, 4 stars on The Dowry Bride “A beautifully written book.
