katebeckinsaleHappy Mother’s Day to everyone. 🇺🇸 Motherhood is the greatest joy and gift. Occasionally it can also feel a bit like being surprised by a drawer full of poo. Here is my mother in a single photo conveying the entire experience . I love you Jude. Love to all the mamas 💕
katebeckinsaleMy stepdad telling our 3 year old friend Ali what VE day was like when he was 9 in Willesden Green. Lovely idea from Ali’s mum Fran. Keep everything alive. The best kind of history lesson is people we love telling stories .Happy VE Day 💋 🍌 🥪 ❤️
katebeckinsaleI’m SO excited to be on the cover of @womenshealthuk - however please be aware we shot this when it wasn’t a pandemic,and gadding about up a mountain in your pants talking about health and bottom exercises wasn’t actually as weird as it seems now
katebeckinsaleI used to think when I wasn’t looking they were going around on their hind legs smoking fags and playing online poker. Turns out they’re doing yoga and giving themselves coffee enemas #wellness
katebeckinsaleShe’s stockpiling bananas and potatoes. I’m hiding some kiwis in the dryer drum like my mum used to do with bagels when my brother was having a growth spurt and had to eat eight an hour #willow
katebeckinsaleBy the way Willow’s room of her own is very much modelled on mine. For anyone wondering about the underpants picture, this is in my hallway. @lily_sheen made it in 3rd grade and it’s one of my favourite things. Plus a couple of quite wanky art people have been quite hmm I like that piece ish about it which is chuckles
katebeckinsaleThe title women and fiction might mean, and you may have meant it to mean, women and what they are like, or it might mean women and the fiction that they write; or it might mean women and the fiction that is written about them, or it might mean that somehow all three are inextricably mixed together and you want me to consider them in that light.
katebeckinsaleThis counts a stunt due to the twin hazards of a hose and a cat 🩰 also HAPPY BIRTHDAY @davidjohnbradley1 the baddest godfather of all time. Hope this reminds you of our triumph as The Great Sockingball and his assistant Betty x❤️💋
katebeckinsaleI don’t know the genius who made this- but to my fellow British old gits who need a smile this morning - whatever’s happening in the world,remember you’re a womble (or possibly Pigsy) 🇬🇧🤘🏼
katebeckinsaleWe are sending our first line of fighters, the medical profession, into a deadly war with no protection AND THEY KEEP SHOWING UP. Many are getting sick and are critical, most have families and most are keeping going, resigned to the fact that they will definitely get sick themselves. This is heroism but it should not be at such inevitable personal risk and cost . Once the first outbreak happened in Wuhan , not one health care provider contracted the virus as they were all given space suits.. Ours are lucky to get a mask and an apron to be resused over and over and of course that is woefully inadequate protection which is COSTING LIVES. Please if you can, donate in the link in my bio to protect the people that are protecting us.
katebeckinsaleLondon is on lockdown. They’ve both got letters from the NHS to stay inside for 12 weeks . But my God we didn’t come through world wars without the kind of spirit that makes my mother in the midst of all this jump out on my 83 year old stepdad and shriek “BOGIES” at him. We got this 🇬🇧 WE LOVE YOU #staythefuckhome
katebeckinsaleMy daughter once told me when she was quite small that if she had to pick alternative movie parents she’d pick Patricia Clarkson and @stanleytucci which I couldn’t really argue would have been hugely preferable. Found Mr Tucci last year and my God he’s a sport. On the eve of UK Mother’s Day please know I will be doing everything I can to become Patricia Clarkson by morning 💕
katebeckinsaleMy lovely dad died today aged 31 in 1979. I think of him every day and especially now we are all collectively having a quiet night in. May we make it a bit more tolerable, like,for each other. I love you RB. Proud to be yours, every day of my life ❤️
katebeckinsaleIt’s good to know that I don’t lose my head in the supermarket seeing people coming to blows over frozen peas. I just go right to the perfect selection of items to get through a crisis and also profile myself as a serial killer. Also the Bora Bora thing is an outright lie
