Kate Beckinsale talks Total Recall


Total Recall 's latest trailer revealed a glimpse (well, a head-shot really) of the three-breasted woman from the Arnie-starring original, a part that Kate Beckinsale was apparently in line to play had she not bagged one of the major roles!

Beckinsale ended up winning the part of Colin Farrell's on-screen wife, but had things panned out differently, she was ready and willing to take on the chesty cameo. "At one point, when it looked like I wouldn't be able to play Lori, I was going to do a cameo as the three-breasted woman," she says. "And I started fretting about where they'd put the third one."

"Have I actually got room for a third one in the middle, or would it go to the side?" she continues. "Would it then be under an armpit and actually not sexy?" Sadly, we'll never know for sure…

Beckinsale will instead be playing the wife of Colin Farrell's factory worker Douglas Quaid, revealing she's not quite what she seems when Quaid pays a visit to memory-augmenting experts, Rekall.

Directed by Len Wiseman and co-starring Jessica Biel, Bill Nighy and Bryan Cranston, Total Recall will open in the UK on 29 August 2012, three-breasted woman and all...
