Kate Beckinsale just revealed a big confession about her dating life. The actress, who is famous as the cat mom on Instagram, says she does not have much experience when it comes to dating.
“Do you know I’ve never really been on a date?” the British actress, 47, said in an interview with Extra on Wednesday.
“I literally meet someone, get to know them at work, and then either marry them or get pregnant by them,” she joked.
Kate Beckinsale even went on to say that she has no interest in blind dates when it comes to meeting someone new.
“I just can’t think of anything I’d hate more than sitting in front of somebody I don’t know, that chances are I won’t like, and have to sit and watch them eat food,” Beckinsale quipped.
Even though Kate Beckinsale may not have been on an ideal date, she was married to Underworld director Len Wiseman from 2004 to 2019. She also shares a daughter Lily Mo with ex Michael Sheen, whom she dated from 1995 to 2003.
Not long ago, she also had a nine-month quarantine romance with Canadian musician Goody Grace after having a brief relationship with Pete Davidson.
While Beckinsale’s personal life seems to be colorful despite her claims on her dating life, on the professional front Kate Beckinsale is excited about her upcoming release.
The “Pearl Harbor” actress will be seen in an action-thriller named “Jolt,” scheduled to be released on Amazon Prime on July 23.
Jolt stars Kate Beckinsale as a woman being treated for her anger issues. While she struggles to find love due to her condition, she comes across the potential love of her life, Justin (Jai Courtney), only to have him taken from her the very next day. Heartbroken, she embarks on a vengeance-fueled mission to find his murderer that makes her realize she’s more of a hero than she ever thought possible.
Speaking about her role to Screen Rant, Beckinsale shared on what level she relates to her character Lindy.
“I think it’s a movie that men will definitely enjoy, but – there’s something very wish-fulfillment about it. Even though she’s not happy about having no inhibitions, it is kind of great to see somebody having a very raw response to being catcalled or to somebody taking up space next to them in the subway. With all of that stuff that we deal with constantly, she just doesn’t hold back.”
She also revealed that she “definitely identifies with” Lindy’s “impulse”.
“She’s loyal. She’s trying to be better. There’s things about herself she doesn’t like. I think she’s struggling with this impulse control thing, and I’ve always kind of tended towards being more anxious and angry. That’s something that you’re always negotiating, trying to be less like that. I liked that,” Beckinsale said.
For the screening of Jolt, Kate Beckinsale brought one of 2021’s biggest trends to the red carpet.
Beckinsale attended the screening wearing a suit from Zuhair Murad, which included a blazer and shorts. Shorts suiting sets are having a major moment right now. She gave her ensemble a sparkly twist with sequins featured on it.
Beckinsale layered the look with a draping shirt and accessorized her look with rings and bracelets. As for footwear, she opted for classic black platform sandals from Jimmy Choo.
