Melbourne: Even at 38, Kate Beckinsale looks every inch the moviestar who is always red-carpet ready.

The actress, who has just the right amount of tabloid-friendly curves, has regularly made it to ‘world’s sexiest’ lists of many publications.

The London-born actor says she maintains her superstar looks by sticking to her daily yoga routine, something she loves because it’s easy.

“There’s a carrot at the end - I get to lie down for 10 minutes. If that part didn’t exist, I wouldn’t do it,” the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.

“I always hated the idea of it - yoga and golf are similar in that people can become obsessive and boring about it. I never thought that would be me, but I do feel a lot better [for doing it],” she said.

“And a happy side effect is that it lifts my bottom,” she said.
