Kate Beckinsale has recently proven that there’s always going to be one big drawback to dating a young dude in their 20s. The specific drawback we’re talking about right now is the one where haters will happily chime in on the age difference. The bad news for the haters is that Kate isn’t afraid to slap back and defend the current object of her affection.
46-year-old Kate is dating 22-year-old Canadian singer Goody Grace, who is less than two years older than her 19-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen. Refinery 29 reports that someone decided to crack a snarky dig at Kate and Goody in a recent Instagram post made by Kate.
Kate is the owner of two Persian cats, Willow and Clive. There’s a neat trick you can do with your cat, where you make a square on the floor using masking tape, and they will supposedly go sit inside the square. Kate decided to try the tape square experiment with one of her cats, because Kate is stuck inside the house due to the COVID-19 lockdown, and the boredom is evidently getting to her. But in true cat fashion, Kate’s unimpressed cat couldn’t be bothered to play along.
One person decided to comment: “Try and see if your new tom boy will adhere.” The sentiment is a little clunky, but it’s safe to assume they were making a reference to Goody Grace. Unless that commenter got some incorrect second-hand news about Kate Beckinsale dating Tom Cruise? I mean, sure – Tom is small enough that he could fit in that little square. But it’s obviously a dig at Kate’s relationship with a 22-year-old. Kate clearly took it personally, and fired back with this:
“Try and see if you can spell and not just goon yourself straight out the gate.”
Kate was likely correcting that commenter on their choice of “tom boy,” instead of “boy toy,” which is probably what they meant. So let this be a lesson: Kate will read your ass if you don’t proofread before posting. And I guess if there are two lessons in this, it’s that Kate doesn’t want anyone’s unsolicited opinions about her pussy! Oh come on, not like that – I’m talking about her cat.
