Real life is reflecting reel life for Kate Beckinsale, who, like her character in an upcoming flick, was spotted locking lips with a much younger man.
The 43-year-old actress is reportedly dating actor and comedian Matt Rife, 21, who appeared on 10 episodes of Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N on Tour” in 2016.
Beckinsale and her new beau can be seen packing on the PDA in West Hollywood, Calif. in photos obtained by Entertainment Tonight.
The actress rose to fame as the star of the “Underworld” movie series, and will next hit the silver screen in “The Only Living Boy in New York” as a woman who begins romancing her married boyfriend’s college-age son.
Despite the May-December aspect of Beckinsale’s new romance, the pair reportedly has the full support of their inner circle, which makes sense as they met through mutual friends.
“He is very mature for his age and is a great guy,” a source told ET. “Everyone in Kate’s circle loves Matt and are so supportive of this relationship. He really is the sweetest guy and makes her so happy!”
Her new relationship comes just two months after she filed for divorce from her husband, Len Wiseman. Wiseman, who wed the British star in 2004, previously filed his own divorce papers last October.
The “Van Helsing” actress separated from Wiseman in November 2015. She has an 18-year-old daughter, Lily, with actor Michael Sheen.
