Need an instant pick-me-up? Try Kate Beckinsale’s go-to trick. If she needs a smiley face stat, she puts on Missy Elliott. “She’s my favorite,” the actress told InStyle at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she was promoting her new flick, The Face of an Angel. “I was in the bath last night listening to ‘Get Ur Freak On.’” Surprised?
