Kate Beckinsale Admits Her Obsession with Doodling Penises Once Got Her Daughter in Trouble: It's Like 'My Batman Sign'

Updated

Kate Beckinsale might be a famous actress, but to her daughter, the star is sometimes, well, just embarrassing.

Beckinsale, 43, stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday, where she revealed that her obsession with drawing phallic-shaped doodles once got her daughter Lily in trouble at school.

“I was just doodling one,” she said after admitting to having a habit of rearranging fruit so that they resembled a penis. “It has sort of become like my sign — my Batman sign. People know I’ve been there if their fruit bowl has been rearranged.”

The actress said that without realizing it, she drew a penis on her daughter’s homework assignment.

“She got in trouble for it,” she said.

And it didn’t take long for Beckinsale’s daughter to turn on her mother.

“Lily went, ‘I don’t even know what to say, it was my mother,’ ” she said. “[The teacher stops] looking you in the eye, they think you’re a terrible person.”

Lily, 17, is Beckinsale’s daughter from her previous relationship with Michael Sheen.

But the actress’ penis-inspired pranks go beyond just embarrassing her daughter. Beckinsale also revealed that she once pranked a colleague by making penis-shaped fruit arrangements outside of his hotel room every night.

“It was like love bombing,” she said. “I think it strayed into bullying, but I felt very positive about it.”
