Kate Beckinsale is so into Pete Davidson that she doesn’t even mind being hounded by paparazzi…

The actress finally addressed her ‘are they/aren’t they?’ relationship with Ariana Grande’s former flame in an interview with The Los Angeles Times.

And although she didn’t mention the SNL star by name, it’s abundantly clear who she was talking about…

“I’m surprised by the interest,” Kate Beckinsale told the LA Times.

“I’ve never been in this position before – never dated anybody who comes with their own bag of mischief. It’s all quite shocking, and something to get used to.

“I think if you liked the person less, you would bow out of it. If that were the main thrust of the relationship, there would be a problem. But it’s not.”

Liking someone enough to put up with the unwanted media attention certainly speaks volumes. Although she did admit that she would prefer it if the paparazzi weren’t constantly stalking her….

“I’d rather not have people hiding outside my house,” she added.

“It’s a little old fashioned to have a woman’s personal life looked at like that. It’s a little bit tired.”

The LA Times interview was conducted just days before Kate Beckinsale decided to delete all of her social media posts. Was this why? We guess we will never know…

Although we wouldn’t have initially put these two together – much like Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, who are now our absolute favorite couple in the world! – we actually think they make a great couple.

And rumor has it that Pete Davidson has already met Kate’s parents, so it looks like they’re in it for the long haul!

We hope they go the distance!
