Girls just wanna have fun — and nobody knows that better than Kate Beckinsale!
On Friday, the 45-year-old actress supported Pete Davidson at his stand-up comedy show in Los Angeles.
Though the pair left the venue hand-in-hand and headed back to Davidson’s Santa Monica hotel together, a source close to Beckinsale says her relationship with the Saturday Night Live star, 25, is not likely to go any further — due in part to her failed marriage with Len Wiseman.
“Kate’s not looking to get serious with someone. She was really hurt after her marriage with Len ended,” the source told PEOPLE. “She wants to have fun with guys and date around. She loves the attention from the younger men she dates.”
“It makes her feel good about herself too,” the insider added. “She doesn’t care what people think.”
Davidson is not the first younger man to catch Beckinsale’s attention in the wake of her divorce with Wiseman.
Then in November 2018, Beckinsale started dating 30-year-old British actor and comedian Jack Whitehall. The pair, who have a 15-year age gap, were spotted showing some PDA at a karaoke bar in Los Angeles, partying and kissing at a candle-lit booth.
Not long after, however, their flame had fizzled out and Beckinsale was spotted with Davidson at Netflix’s Golden Globes afterparty in January.
As PEOPLE previously reported, the two talked intently for most of the night there, keeping their focus on each other even while mingling with Davidson’s close friend Machine Gun Kelly (née Colson Baker), Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Eventually, the other members of the group wandered off, and Davidson and Beckinsale continued to chat. One onlooker said they cuddled at the party as well.
However, the two did not leave together, a separate source told PEOPLE.

Days later, Beckinsale clapped back at a critic who tried to criticize her for her time with Davidson.
It all started after she shared an old photo of her mother, 71-year-old actress Judy Loe, to Instagram.
In an exchange captured by the popular Instagram account Comment by Celebs, one of Beckinsale’s followers wrote, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.” And without missing a beat, Beckinsale responded, “No, that’s my mother. Easy mistake.”
“He is very much enjoying being single as he is focusing on himself,” the source said in late December.
Beckinsale and director/producer Wiseman divorced in 2016, after 12 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The two met in 2003 on the set of Underworld and got married the following year.
At the time, a source close to the pair said, “They have both had complicated schedules and have grown apart.”
The star also shares 20-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen with actor Michael Sheen, whom she dated for eight years.
