‘Underworld’ star Kate Beckinsale says her 13-year-old daughter Lily finds her incredibly embarrassing and uncool.
Lily is the 38-year-old actress’ daughter with former partner Michael Sheen and although she would like to believe she is hip,she admits the youngster now finds her uncool since becoming a teenager,reported Hello magazine.
“It seems she’s grown up overnight. Going to a school with bigger older girls,it’s all accelerated very quickly and she’s become a teenager. So all of a sudden I became a whole lot more embarrassing than I’d ever been in the past. But that’s what daughters do isn’t it,” Beckinsale added.
The actress is learning to cope with raising a teenager by giving Lily space when she needs it even though she finds it difficult to back off.
“I do have a tendency to be that sort of awful mother who thinks she’s really hip and completely relevant in my daughter’s life. So right now I just have to give Lily her space and try very hard to realise that,however much I would like to be,as far as she’s concerned,I am really not cool,” she added.
