VAN HELSING star Kate Beckinsale is keen to avoid Hollywood's obsession with plastic surgery - rubbishing reports she's had breast implants.

The British beauty, 30, claims clever underwear enabled her to achieve bigger breasts in the 2001 film PEARL HARBOR starring Ben Affleck.

Beckinsale exclaims, "Boob job? Hell, no! I have been accused of having a boob job, but actually, it is just very helpful underwear.

"When I did Pearl Harbor they make these cutlety things that look like raw chicken breasts and you put them in and everything goes up.

"In Hawaii it was so hot, I kept taking them out and forgetting about them.

"Ben kept them. He told me he kept them as a souvenir.

"You know, 'I went home with Kate's tits.'"
