Beckinsale's burkha bumps
16:30 05 January 2006
Kate Beckinsale wants to hide her sexy curves under a burkha.
The stunning actress claims Hollywood stars need disguises to avoid being hounded by fans - and thinks a non-religious "celebrity burkha" would be ideal.
She revealed: "I could cause all kinds of havoc in a burkha. Times like this, it would be so handy to be a Saudi!
"Actually, I'm surprised there aren't more celebrities in burkhas. You wouldn't have to work out. You could let yourself go. We should design a non-religious celebrity burkha with a floral print."
But the 'Aviator' star admitted there might be a flaw in the plan, adding to Britain's GQ magazine: "Hold on - how do you smoke a fag in a burkha? We might have to fit a little hole in the design."
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old says she was thrilled when film bosses decided not to make action figures of her for new movie 'Underworld: Evolution' - because the toys for the first 'Underworld' film made her look hideous.
She is quoted in Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "I looked like someone having a sex-change op."
