Kate Beckinsale, a mother of an 18-year-old, was spotted kissing an aspiring actor Matt Rife, 21, in West Hollywood.
The couple are ‘officially boyfriend and girlfriend,’ sources tell Entertainment Tonight.
‘They quickly started flirting, went on their first date and it’s continued since,’ the source said.
And the actress’ friends are already fans of her new guy, the source said of Matt, who is ‘very mature for his age’, added the insider.
Matt Rife does stand-up comedy and has appeared on Nick Cannon show Wild ‘N Out.
Kate seems to be as smitten as ever while she locked lips with handsome Matt as he wrapped around her and pulled her in.
They can be seen smiling as they pulled away briefly during their kiss.
Kate’s night out comes eight months after her husband Len Wisemen filed for divorce.
They were married for 11 years before they had a split.
Before her marriage to Len, she was in a long-term relationship with actor Michael Sheen from 1995 to 2003. They have an 18-year-old daughter together.
Michael has been dating Sarah Silverman since 2014, and Kate says she’s grown really fond of her ex’s new girlfriend.
‘I love her,’ she told E! last year on the red carpet. ‘I love her. I love her. I am so glad Michael found her so I don’t have to spend the rest of my life looking for her.’
‘I’m completely open to any other strong, cool sensitive independent-thinking women who are going to be an influence in my daughter’s life,’ she told previously told Stylist.
‘Sarah’s a great person and I’m glad she’s in the village that’s helping. It’s important as a teenager to have good women in your life building up the fabric of your experience of becoming a woman.’
Kate says now that she’s back on the market, that doesn’t mean she’s going to be giving online dating a shot.
‘I would never be able to go on a dating site ever,’ she told The Guardian’s G2 last year. ‘I would just be expecting a murderer and a psychotic rapist.’
