Kate Beckinsale Hits Back At Those Criticising Her Figure After Death Of Stepdad

Kate Beckinsale has revealed her weight loss is down to the ‘stress and grief’ of the death of her stepfather and her mother’s cancer diagnosis as she hit back at trolls.

The British actress, 51, slammed some of her ‘a**hole’ followers, who told her she needed to put on weight in the comments section of her latest Instagram post.

After sharing a video clip in a crop top and bikini bottoms, one follower queried where her ‘a**’ had gone and encouraged Kate to ‘do some squats’.

Another claimed her body had ‘shrank’ while another insisted that she ‘seemed upset’ in the video posted on Monday evening. 

However, Kate Beckinsale fired back at the cruel comments ands explained that there were several reasons for her changed figure, including a six-week hospital stint.

She captioned the video: ‘Let’s have a toast for the douche bags. Let’s have a toast for the a**holes. Let’s have a toast for the scumbags’

In March Kate Beckinsale revealed she had been hospitalised after sparking concern among her fans with tearful selfies.

She later explained the reason behind her hospital stint in a now-deleted Instagram post, writing: ‘I spent six weeks in hospital due to copiously vomiting blood from a Mallory Weiss tear caused by the stress of a whole year ripping a hole between my oesophagus [sic] and stomach.’

‘That’s what I am prepared to disclose that has contributed to some weight loss. What you think of my appearance and how I should look, independently of any circumstances in my life and my family’s is not important.’

In recent months, Kate Beckinsale had been caring for her mother and late stepmother after flying them out from the UK to stay with her in Los Angeles.

‘Kate has been caring for her parents, who both have serious illnesses, for most of the year,’ a source exclusively revealed to DailyMail.com late last year. ‘She brought them to her home in LA and has made looking after them her number one priority.’

On January 10, Kate Beckinsale announced the death of stepfather Roy aged 87.

The insider revealed that the Snow Angels star — whose biological father Richard Beckinsale died in 1979 at 31 from a heart attack in his sleep — has been feeling the emotional toll in recent months.

‘She was spotted this week several times crying in the corridors of UCLA hospital,’ the source added. ‘Her friends are very concerned that she has been under relentless strain for months and hardly sleeping or eating.

‘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.’

A second source explained that her mother Judy has chosen to keep her health battle private, stating: ‘She’s extraordinary, you wouldn’t even know by looking at her. She has been keeping a very positive attitude throughout everything.’

Kate shared a picture of Roy’s order of service that revealed he was cremated on Monday February 19 at Mortlake Crematorium near Kew in west London.

She also shared another look at the document which had a sweet message on, along with more snaps of Roy.

It read: ‘We wish to thank you, our family and friends, for your loving support and being with us today to honour and commemorate Roy.

‘Please join us afterwards to celebrate him and his life, share memories and stories, and inevitably miss him, knowing how much he would enjoy such a get-together’.

Kate’s mother Judy married Roy 18 years after Kate’s father, Porridge star Richard Beckinsale, died.

Roy enjoyed his own successful career as a director, working on major British on-screen hits including Inspector Morse and Cracker. His most recent directorial credit was for a 2006 episode of A Touch Of Frost.

Kate’s biological father Richard Beckinsale was best known for his roles as Lennie Godber in the BBC sitcom Porridge and Alan Moore in the ITV sitcom Rising Damp.

He also had a daughter — Samantha, 55 — who is his only child from his marriage to Margaret Bradley.
