While Kate Beckinsale didn’t specifically mention her short-lived romance with Ariana Grande’s ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, in a December 2019 interview with Women’s Health she addressed the double standard in aging when it comes to women and men.

“If everyone’s shitting on you, it can make you kind of ugh for a minute—especially if there’s really nothing wrong,” she said, without acknowledging the 25-year-old age gap between her and Peter Michael Davidson, an American comedian and actor.

“If you’re strangling a squirrel or hurting someone, I get it, but living one’s life in a reasonably respectful manner shouldn’t invite anyone to get too excited,” Kate said about her controversial dating life.

It can feel like a little bit of a political act to be a woman over 32 who is having any fun at all. And by that, I don’t mean doing drugs and drinking and partying—because I never am—but being goofy, and going out, and not going, ‘Omigod, I’m going to sit home and anticipate menopause while crocheting.’ Unless you’re doing that, it somehow seems to be risqué, which is just ridiculous to me. And I witness men constantly doing whatever they like—whether that’s in relationships, or deciding to buy a motorbike, or getting a tattoo. It has not been interpreted as ‘Why hasn’t he had more children?’ or ‘Is he ever going to decide to become a parent?’ or ‘Why has he had so many girlfriends?’

In October 2013, it was a “pink party,” but Kate Beckinsale was sizzling in red.

The English actress joined celebrities such as host Anne Hathaway and stylist Rachel Zoe to raise money and awareness for the cancer program of Cedars-Sinai while celebrating women, fashion and friendship.
