Kate Beckinsale, one-time Sexiest Woman Alive: A retrospective

Since we don’t get to see her nearly enough these days and since she’s still one of the sexiest women in the world Kate Beckinsale is an easy choice for this week’s “Throwback Thursday.”

Click on to see just how Kate has changed throughout the years.

Hard to believe that Kate Beckinsale is now 40 years-old, but it was way back in 2001 when most of us first discovered her amazing beauty when she appeared in the film Pearl Harbor.

Since then Kate has appeared in over two dozen films, most notably as Selene in the Underworld series, Van Helsing, Click, and Total Recall.

Previous Throwbacks: Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum & more!

But lately Beckinsale has been less visible as Total Recall in 2012 was the last film in which we saw her. Thankfully, she’s got up to four films scheduled for 2014 and 2015 plus we get to hear her voice as Queen Ayrenn in Elder Scrolls Online.
