Pete Davidson commented on the age difference between himself & Kate Beckinsale on Weekend Update!
One week after his passionate make-out session with Kate Beckinsale, 45, at a New York Rangers Game on Mar. 3, Pete Davidson, 25, finally opened up about their romance on the Mar. 9 episode of SNL. Making an appearance on Weekend Update, Pete provided some advice for anyone wanting to comment on their 20-year age difference, saying, “Apparently people have a crazy fascination with our age difference. But it doesn’t really bother us, but then again, I’m new to this, so if you have questions about relationships with a big age difference just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Disick, Dane Cook, Derek Jeter, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn and whoever the president of France is, Mel Gibson, Billy Joel, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy, Kelsey Grammer, Larry King, Larry King, Larry King, Rod Stewart and Donald Trump.” Well put, Pete!
We reported earlier how Pete’s friends wouldn’t be surprised if he popped the question to Kate soon. “Pete falls hard for girls he dates and that is something that is happening with Kate. So much so that Pete’s friends are first very happy for him that he has found someone that makes him feel really great and happy,” a source close to the Saturday Night Live comedian EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “But [friends] are also concerned he might be diving into something too fast and too soon. But that is something that is in his nature to do in the first place, so they aren’t exactly surprised.”
Meanwhile, on the Feb. 28 episode, both Jussie Smollett and Robert Kraft‘s scandals were made fun of by the variety show. In a legal edition of Shark Tank, with sharks that included Michael Avenatti, Jeanine Pirro, Alan Dershowitz, Rudy Giuliani and jingle-based attorneys Cellino and Barnes, Jussie (played by Chris Redd) and Kraft (portrayed by Beck Bennett) pleaded for help with limited success.
Previously on the Feb. 10 episode, SNL tackled the blackface scandal that rocked Virginia after the state’s Governor and Attorney General admitting to using blackface as part of costumes. In the sketch, every Virginia state official copped up to using blackface at one point in their lives. As a frustrated Kenan Thompson attempted to run an ethics meeting, he was asked, “Does it count if you did it all the way back in the ’80s?” At one point, Halsey asked if Thompson if it was acceptable to wear blackface “if you’re half-black,” she then qualified her remarks by saying that by “half-black,” she meant dressing up as “both Michael Jacksons” for Halloween.
