According to Entertainment Tonight, 43-year-old Kate Beckinsale is dating 21-year-old actor and Wild ‘N Out comedian Matt Rife. I’m getting “Cillian Murphy’s second cousin doing his best Ryan Phillippe in 54 impersonation” from Matt. Kate and Matt were seen kissing outside of a lounge in West Hollywood last night. A source claims she met Matt through a mutual friend, and they’re “officially boyfriend and girlfriend” and that her entire family thinks he’s the nicest person.

Earlier this month, Kate was rumored to have been seen “flirting” with Jon Hamm at an event for the movie Baby Driver. Going from midlife daddy Jon Hamm to a youngin who looks like he thinks being called a fuckboi is a compliment. Kate is really spanning the whole spectrum.
ETs source adds that Matt is a great guy and “very mature for his age.” How much more mature are we talking here? Does he seem more like he’s 24? 26? 39-year-old trapped in the body of a 21-year-old? Still, it’s got to be weird for Kate’s 18-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen. It’s one thing to have to explain what fidget spinners and Riverdale is to your mom, but it’s a completely different level of awkward to hear her boyfriend volunteer to do it.
