The 45-year-old British actress poked fun at the romance speculation on Instagram after a fan commented on a throwback photo of her actress mother, Judy Loe. In the black-and-white modeling shot, Loe is rocking booty shorts and has an owl on her shoulder.
“It was great that my mother covered wearing hot pants really well and rocking a fashion owl so that I could chill for my awkward teenage years and just enjoy having the teeth of an adult horse, waiting only a couple of decades for my head to grow to accommodate them,” Beckinsale jokingly captioned the photo.
One commenter replied, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson." This prompted Beckinsale to respond: “@bubs5983 no that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”
Beckinsale and Davidson sparked romance rumors over the weekend when they were spotted getting flirty at Netflix's Golden Globes after-party. An eyewitness told ET that the Serendipity star and the 25-year-old comedian spent at least an hour on a back patio chatting and laughing together. While the two did leave the event at the same time, the insider noted that they did not leave together.
