Kate Beckinsale Asked Ed Norton For a Favor on Her Daughter's Birthday
Taking a break from promoting her film "Love & Friendship" at the Sundance Film Festival, actress Kate Beckinsale recalled the special surprise she made for her daughter on her birthday.
Released on 7/26/2016
Last year my daughter turned 16,
and she had at the time a list of celebrity crushes
which were very odd.
Ed Norton, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Simon Cowell.
It was a disturbing list, and it made me panic.
However, when you've got a child,
and they're really super into something,
if you happen to see that thing,
you lose your mind the same way as they would
if not slightly worse.
And I was at the Golden Globes
and happened to see Ed Norton on the red carpet,
who I don't know, have never met.
And I found myself in a sort of dream state, rushing at him,
and touching him, and saying,
I had to touch you, sorry,
because you're the top of my daughter's list of crushes.
And he said, How old's your daughter?
And I told him and he was quite pleased,
but then he was very nice and said,
You know, let me know if you want me to
do anything for her birthday, because you know,
I told him she was about to turn 16.
So in the end, we got really lucky, and he, and Seth Rogen,
and Andy Samberg, and Simon Cowell made little videos.
It's the best thing that's ever happened,
not just on my daughter's birthday, but in my life ever.
And it made me think,
if I'm every asked to do a birthday video for anyone,
I will always do it,
because it was unbelievable.
