In 2019 fans discovered that actress Kate Beckinsale and comedian Pete Davidson were dating. And when news broke of the romance, Beckinsale’s ex-boyfriend, Matt Rife, was asked to weigh in with his thoughts. But the advice that he had for Davidson might come as a surprise.
Beckinsale was born in London in July 1973 to actors Richard Beckinsale and Judy Loe. But tragically, when she was five years old, her father passed away after a heart attack. And his death had a profound impact on the star, leading to her suffering from anorexia and requiring years of psychotherapy.
Meanwhile, Beckinsale’s rise to the top started when she began acting on stage while studying at Oxford University. Indeed, she not only appeared in theater productions, but she also landed a role in Kenneth Branagh’s film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing during her first year. And ever since, her star has only continued to rise.
