Kate Beckinsale ‘Shocked’ by Reaction to Pete Davidson Relationship
Kate Beckinsale has been pretty hush hush about her relationship with Pete Davidson (though she has no problem packing on the PDA with her new beau); however, during a recent chat with the Los Angeles Times, the actress opened up a bit. Though she doesn't refer to the Saturday Night Live star by name, it's clear who she's talking about when she says she's "surprised by the interest" people suddenly have with her love life.
"I’ve never been in this position before — never dated anybody who comes with their own bag of mischief," she admitted. "It’s all quite shocking, and something to get used to. I think if you liked the person less, you would bow out of it. If that were the main thrust of the relationship, there would be a problem. But it’s not."
When asked what impact (if any) the newfound attention has had on Beckinsale, she was blunt. "I’d rather not have people hiding outside my house. It’s a little old fashioned to have a woman’s personal life [looked at like that]," she said frankly. "It’s a little bit tired."
One of the big reasons why the public is so fascinated with this relationship (other than the fact that Davidson was recently engaged to Ariana Grande) is the age difference. Though it doesn't bother them, people can't seem to get over the fact that The Widow star is 20 years older than her funny man boyfriend.
