Kate Beckinsale says she has ‘barely ever been on a date’ and jokes she tends to ‘meet someone’ and ‘either marry them or get pregnant by them’










Her love life has hit the headlines a number of times over the years.

But Kate Beckinsale recently gave Extra an interview where she said: ‘Do you know, I’ve really barely ever been on a date.’

The 47-year-old quipped: ‘Like I literally kind of meet someone, get to know them at work and then either marry them or get pregnant by them, on the whole.’

She has certainly never been on a blind date where ‘I’m meeting a total stranger’ as ‘I just can’t think of anything I’d hate more than sitting in front of somebody I don’t know, that chances are I won’t like, and then have to sit and watch them eat food.’ 

Kate shares her 22-year-old daughter Lily with her ex-boyfriend Michael Sheen whom she was involved with from 1995 to 2003.

From 2004 until 2016 Kate was married to Len Wiseman, who directed her in the first two Underworld films and has been a producer throughout the franchise. 

Michael happened also to have been Kate’s co-star in multiple Underworld films including the original one which came out in 2003.

Kate was regarded as having dumped Michael for Len but she denied as much to Entertainment Weekly in 2012.

‘The popular notion of how Michael and I broke up – that we were on [the first Underworld] and I ran off with the director – is just not true,’ she said.

‘If that were the case, I think it would be very difficult and peculiar to have an okay situation. But everybody involved has felt that the priority is Lily and wanting to get to a good place for her. And everyone is nice. So it’s not bad.’

Michael has said the split ‘was obviously not easy, but in the end it was absolutely fine. I think we were both brave to have given each other the opportunity to say: “This isn’t making us happy any more. We need to try for something different.”‘

The Welsh actor, who has done three Underworld films, clarified: ‘He’s a lovely bloke, Len, and I never felt like anything had gone on behind my back.’

In recent years Kate, whose late father was the English comic actor Richard Beckinsale, has dated a number of much younger comedians.

Kate and Pete’s relationship went public when they were spotted kissing in the stands at a hockey game in New York City in March 2019.

The big revelation occurred two days after the first season of Kate’s drama series The Widow dropped on Amazon Prime.

Pete was hot on the heels of his high-profile broken engagement to pop star Ariana Grande who had recently released her hit breakup album Thank U, Next.
