Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson were spotted hitting it off at a Golden Globes afterparty

Don’t mess with Kate Beckinsale.

On Wednesday, the actress clapped back at a an Instagram commenter who mentioned last weekend’s flirty encounter with Pete Davidson.

It all started after Beckinsale shared an old photo of her mom, actress Judy Loe. Someone commented, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.”

Without missing a beat, Beckinsale responded, “No, that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”

The exchange was captured by the popular Instagram account, Comment By Celebs.

Beckinsale, 45, and Davidson, 25, were spotted hitting it off at a Golden Globes afterparty Sunday night.

Davidson arrived at the Netflix party in Los Angeles alongside close friend Machine Gun Kelly (née Colson Baker), but the two quickly separated once the comedian began talking to the actress.

The two talked intently for most of the night before they were joined by Kelly, Isla Fisher, and Sacha Baron Cohen. But even as the group mingled, Davidson, 25, and Beckinsale, 45, kept their focus on each other.

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.

But 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.
