While Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson continue to make us sweat over their highly rumored fling, the 45-year-old actress seems content to leave us with just one clue. When asked what qualities she looks for in her ideal man, the English beauty was pretty coy about her answer — and all signs point to the SNL comic.
“Funny,” the Widows star divulged with a smirk in an interview with EXTRA on February 28. “I like funny.”
An insider actually confirmed Kate’s preference for laughter to Life & Style back in early February. “In spite of the age gap, [Pete and Kate] have a ton in common and share the same sense of humor,” the source said. “She loves watching him perform live.”
Apparently, the 25-year-old is even getting a taste of his own comedic medicine with the bombshell. “Pete’s known for his comedy, but Oxford-educated Kate also has a sharp sense of humor,” the source revealed. “She’s been giving Pete tips on the semi-biographical movie he’s currently working on with Judd Apatow.”
The duo was first spotted together at the Netflix Golden Globes afterparty on January 6, where they were seen flirting and sipping champagne together on a secluded patio before allegedly leaving the event together. Less than a month later, the couple continued to fuel dating rumors when they were spotted holding hands in Los Angeles.
On top of being funny, it seems as though the actress also wants someone younger when it comes to who she shacks up with. “Kate’s always had a thing for younger men and Pete is just her type,” the insider said.
Plus, a source previously told In Touch said the new relationship has really cheered up the comic after breaking off his engagement in October 2018.
“Kate has really helped Pete get over his breakup with Ariana Grande,” the insider divulged. “It’s still [in the] early days, and right now they’re just having fun.”
We can’t wait to see where this relationship goes, because these two actually seem really good for each other — we’ve got our eyes peeled, y’all.
