Kate Beckinsale’s ‘Underpants’ Win the Weekend

Actress frames Shape magazine cover shoot with stupendous Instagram post.

For those who believe in and make New Year’s resolutions, Kate Beckinsale has you in her rear-view mirror. Heading into the the final holiday weekend of 2016, the actress posted a short video clip of her January/February Shape magazine cover shoot, proving she has already attained impossible fitness goals.

The hair and makeup for the shoot was done by Etienne Ortega and the photos were taken by Italo Gregorio. As for the 43-year-old Beckinsale’s formidable current form, it’s a combination of the immutable forces of nature and instructions repeated six days a week by Gunnar Peterson, the famed celebrity trainer based in Beverly Hills.

As Beckinsale reminded last year on The Graham Norton Show, she possesses a wicked sense of humor. Or, as the host prefaced this one particular bit of evidence, she owns a “prank story” that likely cannot be topped.

It is that wonderful sense of humor that informs our headline. In the Dec. 29 Instagram post, Beckinsale credited Peterson for getting her ready ‘for awkwardly standing about in my underpants in front of a Frenchman.’ On the cover of Shape, which hits newsstands tomorrow, Beckinsale sports a yellow bikini bottom.
