Beckinsale recently said in an interview with Mean magazine that she believes that babies are born "80% baked," but that environmental influences are important as well.
Before I was a mom, I believed that nurture was the more important component. But raising children teaches you that personality is something that's part of a person's genetic makeup. I still think there's a delicate balance between the two, however, and that environment plays a big role in who we become. What about you? Where do you stand on the nature vs. nurture debate?
