Kate Beckinsale has often made news for her highly publicized relationships. However, the “Total Recall” star has shockingly revealed that she has never been on a “real date.”
During a recent interview with Extra, Beckinsale spoke to host Jenn Lamars about “dating”:
“Do you know I’ve really never been on a date? I literally meet someone, get to know them at work, and then either marry them or get pregnant by them.”
The 47-year-old further revealed she had never been “set up” or “met a stranger” on a blind date:
“I don’t think I’ve ever been on of those, like, ‘oh, a friend has set me up, and I’m meeting a total stranger.’ I’ve never done that. 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 then have to sit and watch them eat food.”
Kate Beckinsale was present at the show to discuss her role in the action-thriller film “Jolt.” The dating revelation comes following the model’s recent link-up to 24-year-old Canadian singer Goody Grace.
