Kate Beckinsale is the cover girl for this month’s Self Magazine (January 2009) and inside the interview she reveals that she was so weak from hunger during the filming of Pearl Harbor that she battled dizziness on set.

She had just become a mom and felt great about her shape after losing her baby weight prior to the costume fitting for the 2001 film, but was told she was too fat for the movie.

“I remember going to the fitting and trying on a few swimsuits for a scene… I felt fairly triumphant.

“(The costume designer) literally went grey in the face and said, ‘Do you want me to tell you how long you’ve got before this scene is shot?’

“By the time I arrived back at my hotel, I’d been faxed an incredibly rigorous gym schedule and a diet.”

She says she tried to stick to the diet until she started feeling faint on set and then she discovered she wasn’t the only star struggling to get thin adding:

“Thank God for Ben Affleck! He was so candid about the producers doing the exact same thing to him.

“Once I realized it was happening to the boys, too… I was able to put it in perspective.”
