And …. refresh! Amid a budding romance with Pete Davidson, 25, which has turned a white-hot spotlight her way, Kate Beckinsale, 45, has scrubbed her Instagram. No word on why she purged her account, but her account is up and her 2.8 million+ count of followers is still there.
She and Davidson have gotten a ton of attention—much of it bemused—over their 20-year-age gap, and Davidson acknowledged the implicit sexism of the sitch in a recent SNL bit on "Weekend Update," pointing out that dozens of male actors date much-younger female stars, and no one raises a brow to that. She has also poked fun at some of her detractors on social media.
Recently, Beckinsale introduced her mother to Davidson, and friends have said they’re serious.
