Kate Beckinsale Recalls the Torture of Filming a Christmas Rom-Com in August


Back in 2001, Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack were two of the biggest actors in the business. Their movies were known for delivering hit after hit, so when they teamed up on a romantic comedy in which two people meet at Christmastime, destiny pretty much assured that it would be a success, making Serendipity a fitting title for the project. However, for Kate Beckinsale, it was less a winter wonderland and more a logistical nightmare trying to film a Christmas rom-com in the middle of summer.

As the folks at decide say, “Serendipity is the best Christmas romantic comedy that everyone forgets is a Christmas romantic comedy.”
