Kate Beckinsale had her reasons for asking for a body double. She said she hated her own bottom but the real reason could be that she did not want to bare her bottom.
The producers of “Whiteout” were prepared to hire a nude body double to stand in for Kate’s body in a shower scene. The extra would earn $2000 for a day’s work. A source on the set said that the scene would focus on the woman’s bottom and thighs. The search for the body double was done on a Hollywood casting website.
In Whiteout, Kate plays a US Marshal who has to track a killer in Antarctica. The movie would cost $50 million to make.
