AceShowbiz - Kate Beckinsale has gotten candid about her love life. In a new interview, the "Underworld" star confessed that she has "never really been on a date" despite having a marriage, child and several high-profile relationships.
On Wednesday, July 21, the 47-year-old actress revealed to Jenn Lahmers during an interview with Extra that she didn't have much experience when it comes to dating. "Do you know I've never really been on a date?" the "Van Helsing" star opened up.
"I literally meet someone, get to know them at work and then either marry them or get pregnant by them," Kate joked. She added that she has no interest in blind dates, saying, "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 have to sit and watch them eat food."
Kate herself previously hinted that she doesn't want a long-term romance. "I haven't been in very long relationships since (my marriage). I can't imagine living with a person and maintaining my new-found autonomy," the "Serendipity" actress told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper. "For women in relationships with men, it's culturally quite easy to lose track of your life. You've watched your mother, your grandmother, subjugate herself - even on stupid things."
Kate once shared that she thought marriages would last longer if couples opted not to live together. "I think more people would do well married if they didn't have to live in the same house," the "Total Recall" star explained. She went on to add, "Being married is kind of easy, but the living-with-the-person thing is a lot. I also think, for women especially and it is generalizing, but it's common for us to mentally subjugate our needs to whoever else is in the room."
Kate shares 22-year-old daughter Lily with her former partner Michael Sheen, whom she dated from 1995 to 2003. She was also married to film director Len Wiseman in 2004. However, the pair separated in 2015 and finalized their divorce in 2019.
After finalizing her divorce, the "Pearl Harbor" actress entered into a buzzy relationship with comedian Pete Davidson. At the time, they were caught packing on the PDA while out on the town together on several occasions before they split after only four months.
