Kate Beckinsale Says She Almost Played the Three-Breasted Hooker in 'Total Recall'

Kate Beckinsale Says She Almost Played the Three-Breasted Hooker in 'Total Recall'

Jul 09, 2012

For reasons that should be fairly obvious, one of the scenes many folks are most looking forward to in the Total Recall remake (due in theaters on August 3rd) is the return of the three-breasted hooker, one of those throwaway characters briefly featured in the original 1990 version who has since gone down as one of the most memorable aspects of that film. A recent trailer for Total Recall proves director Len Wiseman brought the fan-favorite back for a cameo (watch it below), though she'll be a bit covered up this time since the film is PG-13. She'll be played by a relatively unknown actress, but that almost wasn't the case, according to star Kate Beckinsale, who told Maxim that she almost played the character herself.

"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 told the magazine, adding, "Yeah, 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? Would it then be under an armpit and actually not sexy?"

Needless to say the scene in question would've been a lot more memorable with Becks in it, but unfortunately future college freshman will have to look elsewhere for dorm room poster-related inspiration. Also included in the interview is a lengthy bit about how Beckinsale doesn't like to wear underwear, that her most uncomfortable outfit was the one she wore in Van Helsing, and that her "party trick" is shooting a gun without blinking, which apparently is a rare ability among Hollywood actors and actresses. You can read more in the new issue of Maxim, now on stands.
