British actress Kate Beckinsale was robbed twice in two days while out Christmas shopping in London.
The Pearl Harbour star was picking up some last minute gifts with hubby Len Wiseman when a pickpocket stole her purse.
She lost cash and credit cards and was forced to borrow money from friends to make sure she could buy all her presents.
Just one day later Beckinsale was targeted again when out with her personal assistant, who had her purse swiped by thieves.
Wiley pickpockets often target big department stores in the run up to Christmas as stressed-out shoppers forget to watch their money properly.
Kate Beckinsale can next be seen playing Ava Gardner in Martin Scorsese's Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator.
