Kate Beckinsale was hospitalized for six weeks. The actress didn’t want to disclose exactly why she needed sudden medical care, but now she has finally revealed what happened to her.

Kate Beckinsale is primarily known for the “Underworld” series, which brought her recognition for many years. Recently, the actress hasn’t been playing in big Hollywood productions. In 2023, viewers could see her in the film “Fool's Paradise,” which likely few people in the US have heard of. However, Beckinsale is active on social media, followed by over 5 million users. A few months ago, she announced that she had been hospitalized. What happened to her?

On March 11, the actress informed her followers that she had been hospitalized. Disturbing photos of her in a hospital bed began circulating on social media. "Kate appears to be very strong but this has been incredibly hard and, given that she lost her father so young, is affecting her very deeply. Her friends are concerned for her own health,” cited the “Daily Mail” from a source.

For a long time, the actress refrained from giving explanations. Now, she has broken her silence—provoked by a hateful comment. In a video where she appeared in a skimpy, pink outfit revealing a lot of skin, someone straightforwardly told her to exercise because she had lost her buttocks.

“Actually, I watched my stepfather die quite shockingly, my mother has stage 4 cancer, and I lost a lot of weight from stress and grief, quite quickly," the actress wrote. "And then I was in hospital for six weeks because the grief had burned a hole in my oesophagus which made me vomit copious amounts of blood, and I found eating very hard and I just worked very very hard on a movie that was actually quite triggering because it also involved the theme of the death of my father," she poured out. So l'm not really concerned about what you think about my [bottom]. Maybe you should worry about your own," she retorted.

In the summer of 2023, Kate Beckinsale’s stepfather, Roy Battersby, was diagnosed with two types of cancer. He died on January 10, 2024. She was very close to him. Roy replaced her biological father, whom she lost when she was 5 years old. Recently, the actress learned that her mom is also seriously ill with cancer.
