Beckinsale Studies Crowe For Rage Tips

Subscribe to Russell Crowe alerts

British beauty KATE BECKINSALE studied the films of Russell Crowe to inspire her on-screen rage as SELENE in the forthcoming Underworld sequel.

Beckinsale steps back into her leather outfit for a second time to play the vampire warrior in UNDERWORLD: Evolution, which is directed by her husband Len Wiseman.

THE AVIATOR star admits she studied Crowe's troubled characters MAXIMUS, CAPT JACK AUBREY and JIM BRADDOCK in Gladiator, Master And Commander: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD and Cinderella Man respectively.

She explains, "I studied Russell and it was immensely helpful."

Beckinsale was keen to stipulate she only studied Crowe's screen persona, and not his volatile real-life antics. The Oscar-winner was arrested last month (JUN05) for allegedly assaulting a New York City hotel employee with a phone handset.
