Beckinsale told Us Weekly, "One of the things I like about the Nestle program is that it is very good with providing reading materials to children who are from low income families and don’t have access in their homes… [to] age appropriate reading material."
The actress has a 13-year-old daughter, Lily, with her ex Michael Sheen, 43. The couple separated in 2003 after eight years and Beckinsale married Len Wiseman, 38, in 2004.
"I’ve been very obsessed with reading since I was tiny," she shared. "My mum was a big reader and very much imposed reading on me and I’m the same with my daughter, who’s a huge reader."
Recalled Beckinsale, "She read Twilight and was completely obsessed with them. It actually almost ruined Christmas one year because all she wanted to do was be a vampire and she didn’t want anything on her Christmas list."
