Kate Beckinsale on why she’d rather eat vag than sushi

Kate Beckinsale has been making a lot of attention-getting comments lately. She gave a recent interview to Allure Magazine in which she said that her lady part was her best feature. She also said that she doesn’t deserve a reputation as a loose woman and that “Only a handful of people have seen into the Pharaoh’s Tomb.”

When asked about another questionable comment she made, that she’d rather go down than go to Nobu, she elaborated:

You told an interviewer you’d rather eat a vagina than sushi. When stuff you say makes headlines, what’s the reaction of your publicity team?

I have to say, sushi freaks me out more than almost anything. At least a vagina would be warm. [laughs] My publicist has literally turned a funny color and is going to go have a lie-down. He’s throwing up now, as well. I find a lot of things kind of funny and I often say what’s on my mind, and then get nine texts from all my friends going, “What’s the matter with you?” But I haven’t ever made a big attempt to have any particular image. And I don’t really worry about it.

Sushi is my favorite food and I find it odd that people hate it. I wonder if she’s ever tried sushi. I’m serious, because I could eat it every day. My son threw up sushi once (he was sick with a stomach flu and it was just cucumber sushi, he loves it) and I had to clean it up, but I still wanted it again a couple days later.

Has she tried the non-fish versions of sushi? I have a lot of questions.

A lot of people think sushi is slimy or slippery and have an aversion to trying it, but there are a lot of different versions and it’s really quite delicious. You can’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Perhaps the same might be said for the alternative she mentioned.

    I hear that sister.

    Gee, I wouldn’t know about the alternative. But I’m not a big sushi fan either. And I have eaten it. I didn’t MIND eating it, some of it was good, some was so-so. If someone is serving it, I won’t turn it down, but if you give me an option of sushi or Mickey D’s, I’ll have the quarter pounder with cheese.

    I think she’s funny. Pharoah’s Tomb. LMAO! I think that’s a bad name choice, though, sounds sort of…big?

  3. mommylove says:

    Wow. Talk about desperate for attention. She also made some comments about not wanting to do nude scenes because it would embarrass her 9yo daughter-what about this kind of crazy pronouncement?

  4. headache says:

    I’ve had sushi a time or two and while it wasn’t horrid, I didn’t think it was anything all that special. I’d rather have steak. yumma!

  5. geronimo says:

    LOVE sushi, haven’t tried the other, and like her a lot. That pharoah’s tomb comment is hilarious (as is your query about it, syko!).

    Kate’s wry and droll and I like wry and droll. It’s also kind of refreshing to hear someone who plainly doesn’t give a hoot about how she comes across. I’d rather listen to this than a lot of the stupid, tiresome, platitudes that come out of the mouths of other approval-seeking celebs.

  6. cc says:

    The nude comment was made in an interview and she was asked about scenes she wouldn’t do.

    I, too, love this woman. She seems down to Earth.

  7. jess says:

    I love that she’s not at all self conscious about saying stupid things and doesn’t dance around questions trying to sound mature and PC like most of hollywood…

    I LOVE sushi ans Sashimi and used to eat it every day but since I’ve moved to Austin I can’t find anywhere decent, all the fish her smells… well I know what Kate would say…

  8. Daisy says:

    Sushi is over-rated and it doesn’t fill me up either.

  9. kimmi says:

    I think Sushi is one of those over hyped, pretentious, “hipster” foods. I had sushi a couple of times, and not only did I not enjoy it, but I actually ended up getting sick.
    Anyway, I think Kate’s comment was funny :)

  10. Persistent Cat says:

    I can’t stand fish and most seafood so I hate sushi (and sashimi and all the others). Even the California rolls or ones without fish, the seaweed wrap has that disgusting fishy taste that makes me want to vomit.

    That said, I wish I liked it. The presentation is so nice, the dishes (plates, etc.) are gorgeous. I don’t think kimmi would like me because I’m rather pretentious and snotty. That’s why I’m sad I don’t like sushi. But I just don’t.

  11. Persistent Cat says:

    Forgot to add, her shoes are gorgeous.

  12. kimmi says:

    Snotty I can stand, pretentious hipster– I can’t :)

  13. Persistent Cat says:

    Good. I hate hipsters too.

  14. mollination says:

    lol I think it’s hilarious that you admit what you’re about Persistent Cat.

    I like Kate but I can’t really tell if her comments are genuine, off-the-cuff, and funny… or if they are just designed to come off that way and are actually rather forced and cutesy.

    I hate when celebs specifcally TRY to look like they don’t try or give a shit.

  15. mollination says:

    isn’t the whole “Id rather ____” supposed to use a decidely disgusting alternative? I don’t know that the hoo-ha is the worst possible thing she could have picked over sushi.

  16. Cindy Kennedy says:

    Women these days act disgusting. No wonder men don’t want to have anything to do with them.

  17. Cindy Kennedy says:

    I also think sushi is very pretentious and mainly its pretentious people who eat it.

  18. celebitchy says:

    I really love fish and I especially like smoked salmon. If you don’t like fish sushi isn’t for you, but you might have also had bad sushi. An experience with bad sushi can really turn you off from it forever. I understand people saying it’s pretentious to like sushi, but it’s honestly my favorite food.

  19. elisha says:

    Insert nasty fish joke here.

    q. What’s the definition of mass confusion?
    a. Three blind lesbians on a fishing boat.)

  20. Mary Ann says:

    See, I don’t care much for hipsters either, but I think people who refuse to even try sushi because they think it’s pretentious (as opposed to disliking seafood/seaweed etc.) are awfully silly. Why miss out on a something delicious because of your own insecurities?

  21. Syko says:

    Why is eating sushi pretentious? I like lobster, does that make me pretentious too? It’s silly to judge a person socially by what they eat.

    And – Cindy? Men want nothing to do with women today? Last time I looked they were still fairly enthusiastic about us. I don’t find this quote disgusting at all, but then I don’t find sex to be nasty.

  22. Bodhi says:

    See, I find that comment pretty damn funny. I like her cause she doesn’t really give a shit about how people recat to her comments.

    I like sushi & all, but it doesn’t ever fill me up. I’ll take steak & potatoes over tiny bits of sushi any day

  23. Bodhi says:

    Lobster, yum!

    I really like grits but that doesn’t mean I’m a redneck…

  24. geronimo says:

    Sushi eaters/lovers are pretentious? Yeah, it’s really pretentious to like something that’s very good for you and happens to taste wonderful.

  25. Persistent Cat says:

    I’ve got tons of friends who love sushi. There are two kinds of sushi lovers, those who love it and those who love to tell you they love it.

  26. JoGirl says:

    Sushi is amazingly wonderful here in Southern California, but I had a terrible experience with it in Toronto. Yeah, I was stupid to even try it in Toronto, but my point is that if you haven’t tried sushi in a place where it’s actually GOOD, you haven’t really tried sushi.

    Kate B. is a firecracker, but she really needs to learn when to stop talking.

    Girl is crazy!! I think she’s just eating at the wrong places. Try some texas sushi. It’s awesome!
