The 48-year-old actress admitted her habit can be really annoying because she's so set on her evening ritual, she'll take a dip in the tub before she goes to bed, no matter how late it gets.

She tells People magazine, "I literally cannot transition from day to night unless I have submerged myself in water. Which is really annoying because I could get a hotel room and it'll have cockroaches and go, 'Okay, fine,' But if [the room] doesn't have a bathtub, I'll be like, 'Sorry, can I move?' 

"I really need to have that every day, no matter what. Even when it's Oscar night and you're getting home at seven in the morning once you've been to 15 parties. I still have to go through the whole bath thing."

She says, "I'm really lucky, my mum's got really good skin. I think obviously some of it is a genetic thing, although you can mess that up. I didn't see sun for the first several decades of my life and that's probably been a big help.

"A great deal of it was geography [growing up in England], but the other thing was on the very rare occasions when we would go on a family vacation somewhere hot, I was paranoid that I would get freckles in a moustache formation on my face. So I was wearing Factor 70 [SPF]. I just didn't want a moustache, that's really why I used sunscreen."

Kate also shares she would love to try a chemical peel on her face but is worried something could go wrong.

She says, “I really would like to, because I see people who’ve had them but I just think something will go wrong and I’d be scarred.”
