Beckinsale Hopes Move Will Immerse Wiseman In Brit Culture

KATE BECKINSALE is looking forward to spending more time in her native England with husband LEN WISEMAN, because she wants the US film-maker to understand the culture she grew up in.

Beckinsale, who is directed by Wiseman in UNDERWORLD and its new sequel, has recently purchased a house in London and hopes her spouse will soon identify with her family's British quirks.

She says, "He's very American and the first few times I brought him to England to see my parents I thought he was awfully quiet and very thoughtful.

"Then I realised he just didn't understand a word anybody was saying. Back here (in the UK) I get a strong English accent and talk very quickly with in-jokes about TV programmes and things - he's just clueless.

"So we have bought him a T-shirt that said, 'I Have Absolutely No Idea What You're Talking About' and he wore it all the time. We also made him go to a pantomime which confused him totally, and then bought him a book of Cockney (east London accent) rhyming slang - so I think he's happy to be back home in California."
