Kate Beckinsale's abs are out of control – and so is her sense of humor. The 46-year-old actress didn't take long to the front every media outlet around following her December 18 Women's Health feature, although the quotes ahead of Kate's January/February cover weren't where it ended.
Kate obliged her 3.7 million Instagram followers with some snaps from her shoot with the magazine. It's abs galore, pure power, and just one more reminder that Kate's sense of humor is off the charts.
We Need To Talk About That 'Phallic Duvet'
Kate's ab-flaunting photo showed her kickboxing like a pro in the tiniest yellow sports bra. The "Pearl Harbor" actress had paired her itsy-bitsy workout gear with a pair of tan pants.
Eyes may have been on Kate's age-defying body, but anyone reading the caption was in for a treat. Kate couldn't seem to resist sharing that sense of humor as she referred to the punchbag as a "phallic duvet."
This wouldn't be the first time that Kate has spotted the phallic side of things. Earlier this year, Kate showed Kelly Ripa just how phallic the faucets are over on the "Live! With Kelly and Ryan!" set.
Instagram Notices The Abs (And The Caption)
Kate can always rely on her fanbase for some commentary. Plenty flowed in as the actress' update went live, with fans loving everything from the slamming gym body to the quick wit.
"😂😂😂🙌🙌" was one response – clearly, no words needed.
"I hope your reaction isn’t always to kick it!" a fan replied cheekily.
"Goddess 😍🔥😮🧡❤️," another use wrote.
Kate's update quickly racked up the likes, clocking over 42,000 of them in the space of just one hour. Kate did post another snap of herself from the shoot, and you can see it above.
Fronting 'Women's Health', Plenty To Say On Health
Kate's feature offered her the chance to speak about the importance of wellness.
“I think some people’s systems are just a bit sensitive to things. If you told me you had nausea yesterday, I might start throwing up myself.”
Kate consumes almost no stimulants. The star steers clear of caffeine, and she's alcohol-free. Kate then made an interesting comparison when speaking about chocolate.
“If I ate too much dark chocolate, it would be like someone else taking cocaine," Kate said, possibly hinting at her cheat food.
She Feeds Herself Chicken, Eggs, And Grass-Fed Butter
Anyone jealous of Kate's tiny waistline may want to pay attention. Kate further revealed her nutritional intake, stating her pre-workout foods to be “chicken or eggs with grass-fed butter.”
Later on, Kate might eat salmon and salads with radish, sprouts, and safflower oil. "Naughty" foods do include potato chips, though. No mention of that dark chocolate, then.
Kate's interview also outlined a grueling workout, plus the reveal that she was told to lose weight for her 2001 "Pearl Harbor" movie.
Maybe The Only Celeb To Have Ditched Vegetarianism?
It's generally the other way around. Meat-eating celebrities switch to a plant-based diet, and vegan-friendly websites can happily front their articles with Ariana Grande or Miley Cyrus.
Kate was a vegetarian, but she gave it up while filming "Pearl Harbor."
"I was a vegetarian for a really long time because I am incredibly squeamish about meat. But when I was filming Pearl Harbor, I didn't have enough energy, and the trainer I was working with at the time said ‘You've got to start eating chicken and fish,'" Kate told Shape.
