Everyone around the world has their own opinions on women and whether they should focus on having a family or focus on their career, with many believing that it is not possible to do both to your full ability. However, there are plenty of women who have enjoyed a very successful career, while also raising a family at the same time.
Hollywood actress Kate Beckinsale is regarded as one of the top actresses in the industry and has been for some time, while also raising a beautiful little family at the same time. Now, Kate has opened up about becoming a mother at the age of 25, revealing how having a baby influenced the future of her acting career.
Beckinsale explained, "If I hadn't had a child, would I have done different movies? A hundred per cent. But there were so many reasons that weren't to do with just the movie that would make me do certain movies. I was so busy having my baby and juggling nine movies that I didn't ever sit there and think, 'Right, I need to have a persona and a niche, and I'm going to create that.'"
She added, "I didn't do that. I think other people do that and I think that's really smart. They decide, 'What am I and what am I gonna market myself as?' I just kind of blew along. And what happens is, I think, other people then decide your persona for you, and I didn't realize that until I was knee-deep into the persona."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Kate Beckinsale can next be seen on the big screen, in the upcoming movie Underworld: Blood Wars, which will open on January 6, 2017 in the US, and February 3, 2017 in the UK.
