Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale Hold Hands in NYC After 'Saturday Night Live'

Rumored flames Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale were seen together outside of an SNL afterparty

Pete Davidson and rumored flame Kate Beckinsale were seen holding hands early Sunday morning, just days after the actress admitted she likes “funny” guys.

The Saturday Night Live star, 25, was joined by the British actress, 45, following this week’s episode of the comedy program, as the pair were photographed together outside of an SNL afterparty.

Making a colorful fashion statement, Davidson wore a bright multi-colored jacket with a pair of jeans, while Beckinsale opted for a chic all-black outfit with stylish matching heels.

Reps for Davidson and Beckinsale did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.

The duo’s latest outing came after Beckinsale opened up about how she’d describe her ideal man while attending an N.Y.C. event to celebrate her new DuJour magazine cover on Thursday.

“Funny, I like funny,” she told Extra.


Beckinsale and Davidson first sparked romance rumors when they were seen together at a Golden Globes afterparty in January, where one onlooker told PEOPLE the pair were seen cuddling.

Then, the pair was spotted holding hands on Feb. 1 as they left famed music and comedy venue Largo at the Coronet in West Hollywood, California, following Davidson’s stand-up show.

Though they left the venue hand-in-hand and headed back to Davidson’s Santa Monica hotel together, a source close to Beckinsale previously told PEOPLE that her relationship with Davidson is not likely to go any further.

“Kate’s not looking to get serious with someone,” the source said.

Although the pair have yet to confirm their relationship status, Beckinsale has shut down internet trolls who have criticized their rumored romance.

After Beckinsale was first spotted hitting it off with the comedian in January, one commenter wrote on a throwback photo of Beckinsale’s mother, actress Judy Loe, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.”

In an exchange captured by Comments by Celebs, Beckinsale responded, “No that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”

In February, the actress made a joke about Davidson when a fan mistook the SNL star for the late Freddie Mercury.

“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 captioned a shot of herself posing next to a photo of the singer.

“Is that a painting of Pete Davidson?” one commenter asked, to which Beckinsale jokingly responded, “GREAT EYE.”

Beckinsale was previously married to director/producer Len Wiseman, 45. Following their 2016 divorce, she’s been linked to comedian and actor Matt Rife, 23, as well as British actor and comedian Jack Whitehall, 30.

The actress shares 20-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen with actor Michael Sheen, whom she dated for eight years.

Davidson split from singer Ariana Grande, 25, last October, and though the comedian had admitted to having a hard time in the months since, a source told PEOPLE late last year that he was embracing his bachelorhood.

“He is very much enjoying being single as he is focusing on himself,” the source said in December.
