Never go on a late-night talk show with your mom, ever.
Kate Beckinsale, 44, dropped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to catch up with her old pal Kimmel. While talking about family, Beckinsale revealed her 18-year-old daughter’s crush on the late-night talk show host.
What’s more, her daughter — Lily Sheen — was sitting front row in the live studio audience. “You know how they have crushes on Justin Bieber and things like that?” Beckinsale asked Kimmel. “She’s got one on you.”
But things are a tad complicated in the family. “It’s a little bit of a tricky situation because my daughter’s dad is dating Jimmy’s ex-girlfriend — it’s very twisted. It’s a sort of horrible, ‘Human Centipede’-y vibe,” “The Aviator” star revealed.
The camera turned to the beautiful 18-year-old who, to her credit, kept her head high and shared a big smile. “I think you should be pleased,” Beckinsale said. “She’s very attractive,” she continued before warning Kimmel: “She’s out of your league! I just want you to know that.”
Kimmel, 49, addressed the teen girl directly. “I’m sorry! I had nothing to do with this! This is all her! This is your mother! Let’s not ruin the crush thing. I want to keep that going, okay? Thank you very much. I appreciate it. I’m flattered. [Now] we’re both embarrassed.”
Speaking of mothers, Beckinsale’s own mom wasn’t safe from the actress’s hilarious rampage either! “I know Reddit is the one where sometimes you can find pictures of porn stars with your own face on it,” she dished. “I’ve been sent a few very distressing photos of myself—very busy, actually. Not just sort of in a wicker chair, naked—but involved.”
And so the actress did the most reasonable thing she could. “I just immediately sent it to my mother with no explanation to see what would happen,” Beckinsale recalled. “But, really offensively, I get a text back going, ‘Oh, darling! Oh, dear! Oh, no! Oh, phew! You’ve got hardwood floors and that’s a carpet.'”
