Kate Beckinsale thinks 22-yr-old Goody Grace is ‘the perfect quarantine boyfriend’

Kate Beckinsale at arrivals for DuJour M...

Kate Beckinsale has been dating 22-year-old musician Goody Grace for a few months. They first started stepping out together for pap strolls in April, and this just continues Beckinsale’s trend of “cougaring” with very young guys who look like emotionally disturbed teenagers. It’s her type. I don’t really get it AT ALL but Beckinsale wants us all to know that Goody Grace is still her boyfriend, they’re still quarantined together and he’s the perfect quarantine boyfriend:

Kate Beckinsale and Goody Grace are continuing to spend quality time together amid stay-at-home orders due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“They are still quarantined together at her home,” a source tells PEOPLE of the 46-year-old actress and her 22-year-old Canadian musician boyfriend.

“Kate enjoys his company,” says the source. “She finds him very mature, smart and creative. He entertains her with music, they cook and watch movies. She thinks he is the perfect quarantine boyfriend.”

Beckinsale and Grace were first spotted together earlier last month holding hands on a hike outside Los Angeles. An insider confirmed to PEOPLE at the time that they’ve been together for months. “She has been dating him since the beginning of the year,” the insider close to Beckinsale previously said. “They have fun and Kate seems happy. His age is not an issue for her. It’s just a number.” The insider also confirmed that Grace was social distancing with Beckinsale at her California home.

Beckinsale has even publicly defended her and Grace’s 22-year age difference. Late last month, the actress clapped back at an Instagram troll who criticized the couple on an Instagram video she posted of her cat attempting to learn several tricks. “Try and see if your new tom boy will adhere,” one followers wrote in a since-deleted comment, according to InStyle The Underworld star reportedly fired back, “Try and see if you can spell and not just goon yourself straight out the gate.” The response has since been deleted.

There are always people claiming that this is some kind of “win” for feminism or that “we wouldn’t say anything if the man was older and the woman was younger.” Except that all of us say sh-t about those May-December romances when the man is older ALL the time. Trust me that I would have tons of sh-t to say about a 46-year-old man who only dated 22-year-old girls (who looked younger). Think of all the sh-t I say about Leo DiCaprio, you know? Anyway, I don’t know what’s going on with Kate, if she’s doing this sh-t for attention or if she honestly believes that this young man is a perfect little quarantine cub or whatever. I just don’t get her whole *deal* these days.

    I think it’s predatory. She’s developing a pattern of dating young guys. I know that he’s 22 and he’s an adult. But I just can’t comprehend what an accomplished 40 something year old is doing with someone so young and fresh to fame.

    I hate when men do this. I hate when women do this. I know it can work out sometimes – but the balance of power is so delicate and more often than not it’s shady as hell.

    • bankofjericho says:

      this is ALL about kate wanting to be seen as young/hot/desirable. she’s intensely insecure about her age.

  2. Abby says:

    Sigh. I’m 36 and this guy looks like a child to me. Not someone I’d want to date. I think Kate is stunning and funny and she has a lot going for her. I really like her. But I don’t understand why she’s choosing these guys. Come on!

    • lucy2 says:

      Same here – I’ve always liked her, but I do NOT understand what she’s thinking here. And yes, he looks about 14-15 to me. I’m in my 40s and wouldn’t dream of dating any guy younger than 35 or so at this point.

    • minx says:

      I scrolled down and….he is not what I was expecting to see at all. Really young looking.

    • Turtledove says:

      I think that in this particular case part of the issue is that he really does look like a teenager. I didn’t know who he was prior to this, and if you showed me his pic and said he was 17, I would not question that.

      I think part of the shock here is also that Kate B has sorted of just started this new weird trend, seemingly out of the blue with her last…3(?) boyfriends. Leo Decaprio dated 25 year olds when he was 25, and continued to do so for the next 20 years. We are used to seeing that. Kate just suddenly started and it seems so weird.

  3. Leah says:

    There’s something wrong with her.

  4. Emily says:

    Perfect quarantine boyfriend isn’t the same as saying he’s a good long term partner. There’s nothing wrong with an age appropriate fling with a sexy guy; however, this guy looks SO young. Like he’s in high school and doesn’t have chest hair yet young.

    As posts above said, it’s starting to seem predatory. Choosing someone this much younger isn’t about looks or sex, but an imbalanced power dynamic. It’s creepy when men do it and it’s creepy when women do it.

  5. Biff says:

    It’s a stretch to call the extremely light ribbing this site gives Leo ‘shit’. Thats what’s so frustrating. The dude is a predator.

  6. trout predator says:

    I mean, it’s pretty obvious this is just her way of getting press, isn’t it? I haven’t believed a single one of these relationships – they’re always timed well, heavily papped, and get Kate’s name into the media and press when she hasn’t had a project to shill in a long, long, long time. The last Underworld was in 2016, The Widow didn’t catch on and likely won’t be renewed. Her first ex-husband is having babies with Swedish teenagers, and her second ex-husband, the one she left the first one for, cheated on her thoroughly and publically with a younger woman, and no one felt sorry for her because she dumped her family for the man. So I’m not surprised at all that she’s pivoted to doing exactly the same thing they are; deep down it probably feels very “i can do that too, you son of a bitch”.

    Kate Beckinsale 2020 is the definition of “all sizzle, no steak”. Headlines only, no substance. I feel bad for her – she’s very funny online, clearly there’s a brain under the hood there. I’d like to see her work with some British funny folks and carve out a niche like Liz Hurley’s, “deadpan dollface” thing.

  7. Babadook says:

    Imagining her saying ‘goon yourself straight out the gate’ is very cringey and ‘hello fellow kids’ – ish.

  8. a says:

    I do not understand this situation… at all.

  9. SJR says:

    I just can’t see why she is dating these guys, PR mostly I think.

    10 years is enough of an age gap. Mid-life crisis, trying to seem younger, peter pan syndrome?
    I don’t understand the Leos either, at mid 40′s what can you have in common to a 22 y/o?

    Power trip is all I can think.

  10. Kristen says:

    If your child and your partner are the same age, your partner is too young.

    • Froggy says:

      Exactly!!
      I don’t understand how she can look at him and see anything but a child. My youngest son will be 16 in June and he looks so much older than this guy. Just ew

  11. No Doubt says:

    Besides sex, I can’t imagine what a person that age would have in common with a 20-something. She must have serious maturity issues.

  12. a reader says:

    HE LOOKS TWELVE.

    WHY KATE???? She’s exactly my age and I don’t understand how she can look at that person and think he’s an appropriate partner in any way shape or form.

  13. Ariel says:

    Maybe she’s just enjoying the sex, and the power that comes from being the worldly, wise one in the relationship. It has its perks.

  14. Call_Me_Al says:

    I just want to know what her workout and nutrition regimen is. Not that I would actually do it, but I’d like to hear what goes into maintaining that level of fitness and overall attractiveness. Damn. I’m sure it ain’t cheap!

    • CherryL says:

      She has been batteling eating disorders for a long time.

      • Jaded says:

        She developed eating disorders at age 15 because of a traumatic childhood but by the time she was well into her twenties she’d over come them. She looks very healthy these days, obviously works out and eats well but the anorexia/bulimia days are long gone.

      • Call_me_al says:

        That is really rough. I wish her a strong recovery.

  15. caty says:

    If any of you do not want to date a younger man, then don’t, it is that simple. They are two consenting adults. In ‘murica and other countries one can go murder people in foreign wars at 17 or 18, in many countries one can legally drink and vote at 18 or drink at 19 but god forbid a 22 year old bangs someone in their 40′s. Seriously the cognitive dissonance when it comes to sex BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS and what is considered “A-OK” in other areas of life is mind boggling.

    • CherryL says:

      You got that wrong. It’s about an adult being with someone who just left puberty behind. Something is wrong with her.

  16. CherryL says:

    He looks like a 15-year old. What is she doing? She clearly has some issues. And yes, I would say the same thing about a man that age and a super young girlfriend.

  17. JC says:

    he looks so insanely young, like a baby! wtf kate. make like a computer and get with the program.

  18. Sugar says:

    Yo. 2 adults are doinking. Big deal.
