Kate Beckinsale wants unlikeable roles
Kate Beckinsale returns to fight in 3D! When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to eradicate both species commences. Vampire warrioress Selene (Beckinsale) leads the battle against humankind.
Kate Beckinsale is "not interested" in playing likeable characters.
The British actress says her main ambition in approaching a role is to make the person she is playing seem "human" rather than have the audience warm to them.
She said: "I'm not attracted to characters who are instantly likable, nor am I that interested in making them likable. My goal is to make them real, to find what makes them human and empathetic, to trace a certain logic that explains why a character is how she is."
The 38-year-old actress also credited her role in 2003 vampire movie 'Underworld' for making her more willing to move out of her comfort zone, both professionally and personally.
She said: "'Underworld' forced me out of my head, and I really needed that done. Now I can put myself through things I find horrifying and emotional and know I will survive."
Despite receiving widespread critical acclaim for many of her movie roles, Kate believes she still has't produced her best work.
She told Manhattan magazine: "Really, I'm a late bloomer. My best work is to come."
