According To Kate Beckinsale, Michael Bay Is Not A Good Guy

"Total Recall" London Premiere

Cool move, Michael Bay.

It won’t come as a surprise to anyone that the dude who directs blockbusters and Victoria’s Secret ads is pretty much a huge Hollywood D-bag. But, Kate Beckinsale is a huge actress, so when Michael is calling her out for being “less than hot in a good way,” it makes me think the dude has a personality disorder. Apparently, when Kate worked on Pearl Harbor, Michael talked to the press about her having to work out and not being hot. Gross. Read on:

“I don’t think I fit the type of actress Michael Bay had met before,” Beckinsale recalls of the Transformers filmmaker in a new interview on The Graham Norton Show. “I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren’t bigger than my head and I wasn’t blonde.”

“I’d just had my daughter and had lost weight,” Beckinsale explains, “but was told that if I got the part, I’d have to work out. And I just didn’t understand why a 1940s nurse would do that.”

Even after Bay presumably spent hundreds of hours staring at the actress during filming and post-production, he still was not able to acknowledge the actress’s looks.

“When we were promoting the film, Michael was asked why he had chosen Ben [Affleck] and Josh [Hartnett], and he said, ‘I have worked with Ben before and I love him, and Josh is so manly and a wonderful actor’,“ Beckinsale said. “Then when he was asked about me, he’d say, ‘Kate wasn’t so attractive that she would alienate the female audience.’”

And, it checks out. In 2001, Bay sang both of his male stars’ praises to Movieline:

Ben Affleck was perfect for the role because he “has what some of the fighter pilots I’d met had. . .They were so determined to do their jobs. And if the plane was broken, they were going up anyway, risking their lives.” Of Hartnett, Bay predicted that he’s “going to be fucking huge. He was great [in the movie].”

Movieline follows up by asking, “What made you choose Kate Beckinsale?” Dear readers, prepare for the cringe-fest.

“I didn’t want someone who was too beautiful. Women feel disturbed when they see someone’s too pretty,” Bay, apparently a Ph.D. in Women’s Studies, said. “I’m not saying Kate’s not pretty. . .[she] is very funny, could hang with the guys. She’s not so neurotic about everything, like some actresses.”

UGH. He sounds like the head frat boy on frat row, which is kind of is. I’m glad Kate is so candid about this stuff- hopefully it’ll make one less person see one of his movies (maybe).

Kate Beckinsale’s marriage to Len Wiseman is on the rocks

Kate Beckinsale's marriage to Len Wiseman is on the rocks

Kate Beckinsale married Len Wiseman in 2004, but apparently things aren’t looking good for their marriage lately. Len was apparently out and about with a younger model while Kate has been keeping busy filming Underworld 5.

TMZ reports:

42-year-old Len Wiseman has been spotted out — sans wedding ring — with 24-year-old CJ Franco. They were out Tuesday night at The Nice Guy, partied until 2 AM and left together.

It’s the third time we’ve seen Len out with CJ, as 42-year-old Kate is ensconced in Prague shooting “Underworld 5.”
Kate and Len married in 2004, but it sure seems the marriage has come to a screeching halt.

It’s interesting that Kate and Len fell in love while she was still with Michael Sheen. Perhaps they just fell apart and into the arms of other people? It’s just sad because they’ve been together for such a long time.

What do you think is the source of their marriage troubles?
