The British actress is the queen of comebacks!

Haters better think twice before coming after Kate Beckinsale

The 45-year-old British actress took to the comments section of her Instagram after she posted a photo of herself and her 29-year-old friend and reported assistant, Stephen Simbari, at a Los Angeles Lakers game on Sunday. 

The two pals were all cuddled up while sitting in the stands, which they have done several times before. 

When one commenter wrote, “Is the boy next to you your son or why do you hang around with him?”

Beckinsale replied, “He is my son, yes. I kept him in the cellar for 29 years but now I feel I should take him out on jaunts.”


This isn’t the first time Beckinsale has gotten cheeky when online shade has been thrown her way. After she was spotted getting flirty with comedian Pete Davidson at a Golden Globes after-party earlier this month, someone commented on a throwback photo of Beckinsale’s mother, writing: “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson,”

This prompted the Serendipity star to respond, “No, that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”
