On Gear Live: Geared Up: Predictions for the Upcoming iPhone Event with Sara Dietschy

Kate Beckinsale Likes All Her Co-Stars

Kate Beckinsale and Mark Wahlberg in ContrabandKate Beckinsale has been lucky with her movie co-stars.

The Contraband actress has starred alongside actors including Mark Wahlberg, Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett in her career and says they have all helped to make things easier for her on set.

"I've been very lucky with my co-stars in my career. If you don't like your co-star it doesn't by any means follow that you can't do a good performance with them - co-stars who don't get along in real life quite often have really great on-screen chemistry. But it is much more pleasant and a great deal more fun if you do like them."

Kate also revealed she took on the part in Contraband because it is so different from her usual type of role: "Although it's an action movie, my character is different from those I usually play in those films. She's not a fighter, she's just a normal, nice working-class woman, a hairdresser from New Orleans, happily married with two children."

The Blind Side

The third time was a charm for Sandra Bullock.

After two weeks of second place finishes, emerged from New Moon‘s shadow to take sole possession of first place. The movie, which added another $20 million to its $100+ million total, has now given Bullock her second chart topper of the year. (And, no—All About Steve is not the other film I was referring to.)

Despite several new wide release entries, the football players and the vampires strongly defended their hold on the top two spots. - starring Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman - came in third place with only a $9.5 million take. Meanwhile, Everybody’s Fine with Robert De Niro and Drew Barrymore did a less than fine $3.8 million.
