Kate Beckinsale Speaks About Double Standard Between Men & Women and Dating Younger Men

Kate Beckinsale is speaking out about the differences between men and women, and slamming the “ridiculous” way she’s seen for dating younger men.

“It can feel like a little bit of a political act to be a woman over 32 who’s having any fun at all. And by that, I don’t mean doing drugs and drinking and partying, because I never am, but being goofy, and going out, and not going, ‘Oh my god, I’m going to sit home and anticipate menopause while crocheting.’ Unless you’re doing that, it somehow seems to be risqué, which is just ridiculous to me,” she told Women’s Health.

“And I witness men constantly doing whatever they like, whether that’s in relationships, or deciding to buy a motorbike, or getting a tattoo. It hasn’t been interpreted as, ‘Why hasn’t he had more children?’ or, ‘Is he ever going to decide to become a parent?’ or, ‘Why has he had so many girlfriends?’” she said.

On the Internet weighing in on her romance with 26-year-old Pete Davidson, which ended last year, she added, “If everyone’s sh*tting on you, it can make you feel kind of ugh for a minute – especially if there’s really nothing wrong. If you’re strangling a squirrel or hurting someone, I get it, but living one’s life in a reasonably respectful manner shouldn’t invite anyone to get too excited.”

Kate has been dating a 22-year-old musician and you can find out about him here!
