Kate Beckinsale, who was in the hospital for unknown reasons in September, is now speaking up. On Monday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, the Jolt star appeared alongside Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl to discuss the circumstances surrounding her mid-September hospitalisation.
Although Beckinsale went to the hospital while filming a forthcoming project, she assured host James Corden that it was not because of an on-set accident.
The actress claimed, “After eight or nine hundred action movies, I injured myself in my hotel room trying to put on a pair of leggings.” I wasn’t literally scaling walls or anything; I was just acting out a very dramatic emotional scene.
It felt like a guitar string had snapped and everything had gone horribly wrong when I was in my hotel room putting on a pair of leggings.
She continued by saying that she was unable to move in any way, including walking, lying down, or sitting up, and claimed the injury was “worse than having a kid.” The situation was so hopeless that I just couldn’t act.
When an ambulance finally arrived, they “laid out a sheet and gathered me up in it like a sort of sausage,” and Beckinsale was transferred to a gurney because she was unable to move.
She told Corden that she was Given “a Lot of Medicines” During Treatment.
I was unable to move in any way, shape, or form (i.e., walk, lie down, or sit). I was helpless,” she admitted. Due to this, she needed an ambulance to take her to the emergency room because she could not get there on her own.
With a chuckle, she described how an ambulance arrived and how “they sort of rolled out a sheet and gathered me up in it like a sort of sausage,” before placing her on a trolley.
The actress from Underworld also claimed that she was “given a lot of drugs” at the hospital. She said she didn’t drink at all, but the strong painkillers she was given made her realise “what sort of a drinker I am.”
A hospitalised star of the Underworld franchise claims she was “given a lot of medications.” She said she doesn’t drink at all, so realising “what type of a drunk I am” after taking a lot of pain medication was shocking.
When asked, “Do you know who I am? She elaborated, “I’m extremely pleased I’m not the ‘Have you watched all my films?’ sort. But I’m the type of person who thinks “Everyone’s trying to steal my fucking ovaries.”
