The beautiful actress Kate Beckinsale also stars in The Aviator as legendary screen siren Ava Gardner. She only had one night to prepare for her audition with Martin and read with Leo.

Kate: I locked myself in a room with [Ava's] movies and scared my husband with the rocking back and forth, watching her and trying to kind of capture her voice and everything. Then [Martin] asked me to come not looking too contemporary.

Leo: She was Ava when she walked in. Absolutely.
