AceShowbiz - Kate Beckinsale is known for dating younger men. Despite the backlash, the 46-year-old actress didn't seem to think that it was something wrong. She recently took time to respond to a hater who criticized her dating choices.
The troll blasted the British star in a comment underneath her recent Instagram account featuring her wearing googly eyes all over her face. "Nightclubs are closed but we have googly eyes and mostly it's the same except less risk of illness and no one has wee'd all over the ladies loo seat," so Kate captioned it.
Commenting on something that had nothing to do with the snap or the caption, the hater asked, "Why do you keep dating guys that could be your children?" The actress didn't let the comment go unnoticed and reacted to it in her style.
"Every relationship I have had has been solely to annoy you," so she fired back at the naysayer.
This is not the first time for Kate, who used to be romantically linked with comedian Pete Davidson and singer Goody Grace, to address her reputation for her love of dating toyboys. In an interview with Women's Health magazine, she insisted there's nothing wrong with "living one's life in a reasonably respectful manner."
"It can feel like a little bit of a political act to be a woman over 32 who's having any fun at all," she explained. "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 risque, which is just ridiculous to me."
"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 added.
