Is there anything more perfect in this world than when two beautiful people get together and form a power couple? It’s hard to look away. You know the kind of couples I’m talking about. We’ve got Brad and Angelina. Blake and Ryan. Chrissy and John. Leo and *insert 21-year-old lingerie model here*. We expect these couples. They make perfect sense. They just feel right. But recently we’ve had a, let’s say, non-traditional celebrity as one-half of the hottest couples, and I’m trying to wrap my head around just WHAT it is that makes Pete Davidson irresistible. In the last year and a half alone, Pete has been engaged to Ariana Grande, dated Kate Beckinsale and Margaret Qualley, and now things are getting romantic with Kaia Gerber. Over the weekend, they celebrated his 26th birthday and were spotted holding hands. It. Is. On. I think anyone with eyes would agree that Pete doesn’t look like your traditional Hollywood leading man, or someone that we usually see with the most beautiful women in the world. So what is it about him that makes women flock to him? Let me and my remedial Psych 101 knowledge break it down for you!
Pete Davidson is the reason that BDE exists in our lexicon, and it was exhaustively discussed all over the internet last summer. So what contributes to his BDE? First, he’s tall. You might not think this is all that important, but most of the men in show biz are tiny. I know this for a fact because I was once at a fashion show and the Jonas brothers were there, and I scooped up all three of them in my palm, put them in the front pocket of my overalls, and walked right on out. I’m not even kidding. So, tall is rare and tall is exciting. Also, unlike Kourtney Kardashian, he is interesting to look at. He might not be traditionally handsome, but that is a FACE, you know? It has presence. And finally, he’s intense. He falls hard. These relationships have not lasted a long time, but they’ve gotten serious quickly, with engagements and move-ins, and premieres, etc. And who doesn’t want a guy that’s completely obsessed with them, to the point that you get matching tattoos, a pet rabbit, and the inability to ever be physically separated before you even learn their middle name? I sure do. That’s totally healthy, right?
This one doesn’t need much explanation. He’s on SNL. He joined the show when he was only 20 years old as one of the youngest cast members ever. He also has a movie called King of Staten Island coming out in 2020 that is based on his life, and that he wrote with a guy you might have heard of, Judd Apatow. Sure, his humor is dark, but I think most people would appreciate someone whispering horrific jokes into their ear at their mother’s funeral. Just me? At the VERY least, Kate Beckinsale was definitely into that.
He Gets Lots Of Publicity
As I always say around here, if you think that celebrities are not calculated and strategic about their images, then it must be nice living in your very empty and uncomplicated brain. Can I move in, please? Pete Davidson is officially a publicity magnet. Ever since his relationship with Ariana, his profile has blown up, and people are interested in his every move. This makes him a great choice for a young female celebrity who wants to put her name on the map. I mean, Margaret Qualley? Not to be rude, but who the f*ck are you? Approximately 12 people watched The Leftovers. And yeah, Kaia Gerber is getting pretty famous, but if she wants to overtake Gigi Hadid as the top second-generation supermodel, she really needs to up her profile. And a buzzy relationship was the one thing she was missing. So now they’ll eat that Magnolia cake, they’ll hold hands around town, they’ll profess their undying love on Instagram, and then they’ll break up. All of this will happen in the next 30 days. The relationship won’t last long, but that publicity bump for Kaia will last forever.
And there you have it! Pete Davidson, hot girl magnet. Did I miss anything else that makes him so irresistible? Let me know!

Over the last few weeks, the most interesting new celebrity couple has without a doubt been Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson. And that has nothing at all to do with the fact that the more interesting celebrity couples are already broken up. When Pete and Kate were first spotted getting cozy together, it seemed like it might just be a random drunken hookup, but they’ve definitely got some sort of relationship going on. And by that I mean, they’ve escalated from hand-holding to full-blown public makeouts, as celebrity couples do. Our curiosity about what’s happening with them was refreshed this week when they were seen making out at a Rangers game. Classic. Antoni was clearly stressed out about the situation, and frankly, so was I. We’ve all been wondering if this relationship is a PR stunt, so we reached out to our go-to for celeb gossip, Enty Lawyer. His site Crazy Days and Nights is always on point with the latest Hollywood drama, so we really needed him to weigh in. But before we go to the expert’s opinion, we first need to establish why Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson’s relationship might be a PR stunt in the first place.
It’s Time For A Rebound
It’s now been like, five months since Pete Davidson’s whirlwind relationship with Ariana Grande came crashing down. (For some reason, it feels like it both happened yesterday and 100 years ago.) We were worried about both Pete and Ariana at first, but it seems like they’re doing fine now. Ariana’s new album became the biggest of her career, and she’s about to embark on a sold-out world tour. Pete seemed like he was really struggling in the immediate aftermath of the breakup, but lately, he’s been doing a lot of comedy shows and has been showing up at SNL. So with their lives back in order, is it time for a new fling? From all the photos we’ve seen of him with Kate so far, it looks like he’s genuinely enjoying himself. They might not be in it for the long haul, but isn’t it time for a fun rebound fling? Their astrology charts show that they’re perfect for each other… at least in the rebound department, anyway, in case you needed further evidence.
He’s Way Younger

The age gap between Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson is one of the more interesting pieces here. Kate, at 45 years old, is 20 years older than Pete, which seems kind of shocking, but this might not be too out of character for her. Enty Lawyer tells us that she’s mostly dated younger since getting divorced in 2016, and he’s right. For a few months in 2017, Kate dated comedian Matt Rife, who is two years younger than Pete, and, um, incredibly hot. She’s got a type!
She Has A New Show Coming Out
The main reason we’ve been wondering whether their relationship is legit is that it just seemed so random. Like, how did these two meet, and at what point did they first get together? The timing seemed especially convenient, considering that Kate Beckinsale’s new Amazon show came out last Friday. Look, Kate Beckinsale is great and all, but let’s not pretend she’s been the buzziest star recently. What better than a high-profile fling to drum up some curiosity about The Widow? That’s right, I bet you didn’t even know the name of the show until this very moment. Whoops, still haven’t watched it. This definitely feels like it could be a fake relationship, but Enty is pretty sure that they met by chance recently the night before an InStyle party, and just hit it off.
He (Maybe) Has BDE
Never forget this f*cking iconic Ariana Grande tweet, implying that Pete is packing major heat. Last summer, all we could talk about was how he radiates big dick energy, and that hasn’t really changed. Then again, Pete has more or less denied that he’s toting a third leg. He joked in a stand-up show, “Everything is huge to . Why would she tell everyone that I have a huge penis? So that every girl who sees my dick for the rest of my life is disappointed.” So does the poster boy for BDE actually have BDE? I don’t intend on finding out for myself, but maybe Kate was really curious. Look, if you’ve never been with a guy just because of his size, well, you’re a better person than me I guess. Even though his relationship with Kate seems random, it’s not difficult to imagine them getting together and having a fun time. This might not be a serious relationship for either of them, but in my opinion, it’s most likely completely real. Enty agrees. Here’s exactly what he had to say:
Is it worth the price of Pete Davidson’s tongue down your throat for all the world to see for a publicity stunt for your Amazon show?
Couldn’t have said it better myself.

The internet continues to collectively lose its sh*t over Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale and their 20-year age gap. They’ve been mum about their relationship status—our only non-paparazzi confirmation is Beckinsale coyly clapping back via Instagram comments. So, like, how the hell did this happen?
I’ll admit it: I’m charmed by Scorpio and SNL regular Pete Davidson—Ariana Grande’s infamous tweet confirming his BDE might have something to do with it. If BDE (“Big Dick Energy” for those of you living on a limited data plan in your mom’s basement) isn’t one of the first things you think when you hear Scorpio, you’re either lying or you’ve been jaded by one.
Let’s recover our jaws from the floor and ask the actual hard-hitting questions (because what kind of astrologer would I be otherwise?): Will it last? Is she a rebound? Are their birth charts actually compatible—or is BDE all to blame?

Hello, Sexual Tension
Astrologically speaking, there’s blatant tension with this pair. Kate’s a Leo, the zodiac’s over-the-top attention-seeker and a fire sign, and Pete’s a Scorpio, a more silent, brooding, mysterious water sign. Leos and Scorpios are both known for being stubborn af—not exactly what you’d call a match made in heaven. Take J.Lo and Diddy for example—the ultimate Leo-Scorpio mash-up, and a totally sexy flop.
The Leo-Scorpio couple oozes sex—they’re passionate and fiery. After the first one-night stand—er, first date—the sexual tension is palpable. It’s easier to bang away our differences than talk about them, right? And while this makes for serious foreplay initially, turns out that’s not what sustains relationships. (Contrary to popular f*ckboy belief. But, I digress.)
So while it’s fair to say Pete and Kate are enjoying some raunchy Cruel Intentions-level sexcapades right now, over time the glaring differences in their personality could be a source of conflict. But when comparing their birth charts, the screenshot of where all the planets were in the sky at the exact moment you were born, it’s easy to see what led the pair to give it a go beyond the BDE.
There are serious healing contacts between some of the planets in their birth charts that could cause each of them to feel that their meeting is fated. One in particular has to do with an ancient asteroid, Chiron, that represents our deepest wounds that we carry with us through our lives. Interesting things can happen when Chiron intersects with certain planets, namely Venus—the planet that rules our style of love. (Basically Venus is that Love Language book that every sorority girl was obsessed with in 2010.)
Pete’s Chiron coincidentally links up directly with Kate’s Venus. The connection between these two personal points reveals a massive potential for healing love-related wounds, and unparalleled common ground for understanding each other’s expression of love and past hurt. Yes, you guessed it: this is the perfect rebound aspect. They feel drawn toward one another and recognize a potential healing connection.
Thank U, What’s Next?
While the duo is likely basking in a period of seriously hot sex, with a dash of mind-blowing emotional intimacy, we’re all wondering how long this is going to last. Keep your eyes on the tabloids around February 19, when there’s a full moon in Virgo. Kate happens to have her love planet in the sign of Virgo. The full moon is going to be lit af for her love life.
Don’t care about the Kate Beckinsale/Pete Davidson relationship publicity stunt.
IS HIS SHIRT WHITE OR BLUE??

If anyone can tame and charm a Scorpio, it’s the queen of the Underworld franchise herself. But remember, full moons bring about completed cycles, sudden change, and, often, endings. It’s a make-it-or-break-it milestone. The pair will either make it more official, or they’ll split. Regardless, both will have a life-altering, sensitive point in their charts activated. And for that, they’ll be so thankful.
