She definitely has a sense of humor! Neither Kate Beckinsale nor Pete Davidson has officially confirmed their potential relationship, but they both have acknowledged it in one way or another. On February 9, the actress, 45, couldn’t help but respond to a fan that asked her what was going on between her and the SNL star, 25.
The U.K. native posted a photo of herself at an exhibit while she stood next to a photo of Freddie Mercury. “Trying to look like someone who was not wildly overexcited about this picture or startled while planning a sneaky lick of Freddie’s eyeball,” she captioned the snap.
One of her followers immediately took to Instagram to ask what everyone wants to know — is she with the Staten Island native or not?! “Is that a painting of Pete Davidson?” the person wrote. “GREAT EYE,” the brunette beauty clapped back.
This isn’t the first time the Underworld alum has responded to her fans, either. After Kate and Pete were spotted at the Golden Globes afterparty, an Instagram user wrote on an old photo of Kate’s mom, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.” She responded, writing, “No, that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”
Some people were confused when the two started to be photographed together, since there is a 20-year age difference between them, but it looks like several fans are shipping this love affair.
One person commented, “@KateBeckinsale love response. Pete is great in What Men Want … love him too. He is soooo funny real,” while another echoed, “He’s a real man, funny and hot. Still in his prime and can keep up. Kate, never date a dude over 30 again. It’s pointless.” A third chimed in and couldn’t help but be excited for Kate, writing, “Pete is a hottie and amazingly funny, you go girl!!!!”
It seems like the couple are making it work. “Kate is a lot of fun and loves embracing her youthful side,” a source told Us Weekly. “She’s always the life of the party and likes going out, dancing, and hanging out around young people at his places.”
OK guys, we’re ready for you to drop the news that you’re together already!
