The 43-year-old actress lamented her “tragic” teen years in a recent Instagram post, sharing a photo of a NSFW postcard she wrote to appear as though it had come from the actor.
“Dear Kate yes I will marry you. See you soon. love Rob Lowe,” the postcard read.
Beckinsale shared the photo, including an old shot of the now-53-year-old actor.
She captioned the post: “EITHER I was a really tragic 13 year old with time on my hands OR Rob Lowe was all kinds of casual proposing marriage via a postcard of himself, signing his last name AND drawing a dick instead of using a stamp. (found at my mum’s house).”
To the untrained eye, the postcard appeared to have come from Lowe. But it was likely the drawing that gave Beckinsale away, as she has long been obsessed with drawing phallic-shaped doodles.
