"Pearl Harbor" actress Kate Beckinsale has demanded a body double for her latest film because she "loathes" her behind, Britain's Daily Mail reports.

Producers will reportedly have to pay $2,000 a day for a nude stand-in for Beckinsale's shower scene in "Whiteout" after she refused to bare her thighs and rear end on-camera.

"Kate has a terrible self-image," an on-set source told the Mail. "She thinks she is fat and she is always complaining how certain outfits make her bottom look big. Of course, the reality is that she has the most amazing body.

"The script called for her character to be filmed nude in a shower, focusing in on her bottom and thighs. Kate insisted on a double being hired. She was quite open on the set about not liking her body and said she particularly loathed her bottom and was not comfortable baring it."

A last-minute call for a double went out on a Hollywood casting Web site last week, the Mail reported.

Beckinsale, 34, who battled anorexia as a teen, told Glamour in 2007: "If I could swap places for a day it would be with someone with gigantic, real breasts."
