Kate Beckinsale Hilariously Replies to Fan Who Asks About Pete Davidson Amid Romance Rumors
Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson have sparked speculation ever since the two were seen together at a Golden Globes afterparty in January
On Saturday, the actress responded to a fan who asked her about the Saturday Night Live comedian, 25, in the comments of an Instagram post.
“Trying to look like someone who was not wildly over excited about this picture or startled while planning a sneaky lick of Freddie’s eyeball,” Beckinsale, 45, captioned the image of her posing next to a photo of the late Freddie Mercury.
In an exchange captured by Comments by Celebs, the commenter wrote, “Is that a painting of Pete Davidson?”
“GREAT EYE,” Beckinsale responded jokingly.
This isn’t the first time Beckinsale has joked with Instagram commenters who have asked about Davidson.
After Beckinsale was spotted hitting it off with thecomedian at a Golden Globes afterparty in January, one commenter wrote on a throwback photos of Beckinsale’s mother, actress Judy Loe, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.”
Beckinsale responded, writing, “No that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”
As PEOPLE previously reported, the two talked intently for most of the night at Netflix’s Golden Globes afterparty, keeping their focus on each other even while mingling with Davidson’s close friend Machine Gun Kelly (née Colson Baker), Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen. Eventually, the other members of the group wandered off, and Davidson and Beckinsale continued to chat. One onlooker said they cuddled at the party as well.
Despite reports, the two did not leave together, a separate source told PEOPLE.
Reps for Davidson and Beckinsale did not return PEOPLE’s requests for comment at the time.

“Kate’s not looking to get serious with someone,” the source told PEOPLE.
In November 2018, Beckinsale started dating British actor and comedian Jack Whitehall, 30. The pair were spotted showing some PDA at a karaoke bar in Los Angeles, kissing at a candle-lit booth.
Beckinsale shares 20-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen with actor Michael Sheen, whom she dated for eight years.
“He is very much enjoying being single as he is focusing on himself,” the source said in late December.
