Guess who turns 40 today! That’s right, one of the most beautiful women in the world — Kate Beckinsale!
So to celebrate, here are 40 pics of the British Beauty to celebrate 40 awesome years (and many, many more!)
Hey, Kate, listen up, this post is for you!
Remember when you were just turning 30?
Hell, can you remember when you were just turning 20?! Where’d the time go?
We all know you can rock a red carpet.
Even when Bryan Cranston is goofing around.
You can even go semi-punk and still look flawless.
And you were doing the right leg thing way before Angelina Jolie.
Open mouth gaze? No problem.
Casual white dress? Nailed it.
Sometimes when you’re on the red carpet, you literally glow…
And make Rosario Dawson burst into laughter.
Of course, you’re great with your fans…
Even when a German bodyguard is glaring at them.
Other celebrities like you too. Like Russell Crowe…
And Amy Adams literally LOLs whenever she’s around you…
While Terrance Howard could care less about what’s going on stage…
And Justin Long doesn’t want to let you go.
You’re BFFs with Drew Barrymore…
And you’re kind to the celebs who seem confused, like Marc Anthony.
And sweet to rising stars like Olivia Thirlby.
All while plotting Resident Evil: Underworld with Milla Jovovich.
And awkward moments like this one with Seth Rogen “hiding a massive erection?” No problem.
You’re one of the few women in the world who can make us not look at Freida Pinto.
Hell you can even get Benicio del Toro to crack a smile.
And humor the likes of Jay Leno…
And flawlessly fire back an amusing punchline.
One of these days we have to get you two to make another movie together…
Fame and celebrity may have its perks, but you’re a mother first.
That includes your dogs…
Even when they don’t feel like walking.
How cool are you? You were going to Comic-Con before it became a pop culture hot spot.
So of course going now is no big deal.
And you’ll graciously accept awards like Spike TV’s Jean Claude Hot-Dayum Award.
Yup, if Ladies Love Cool J, then Guys Love Kate Beckinsale. Your rap name would be GL Hot K.
Sexy librarian look? Check.
So kick back…
Enjoy a special treat…
And enjoy your fabulous 40th birthday.
