Beckinsale Envies Knightley's Glam Beginnings

Hollywood beauty Kate Beckinsale envies fellow English actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY, because the teenage actress looks more glamorous than she did as a rising star.

The PEARL HARBOR star didn't have help from stylists and make-up artists for her red carpet appearances as a young actress and is amazed by 19-year-old Knightley's immaculate dress at premieres.

Beckinsale says, "The pampering has changed. I looked at how Keira Knightley is coiffed when she attends events. I remember going to Cannes with MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING when I was 18 and nobody told me, 'Oh, here's a make-up artist', or, 'This person wants to dress you, what clothes are you wearing?' It just wasn't like that when I started.

"Nobody even told me I could bring a friend. I just sort of showed up in a very expensive pair of trousers I bought in Harvey Nichols (London department store) and something I bought in the SOCK SHOP at the airport.

"But Keira Knightley has full hair and make-up and a proper outfit and I think, 'Wow, she's not going to have to endure the 'before' photos I had to endure.' She's really lucky."
