Kate Beckinsale is shutting down rumors that she and Jamie Foxx are dating. A day after the pair were spotted together at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globe Ambassadors party on Thursday night, the 46-year-old actress made it clear that just because she’s seen with someone, doesn’t mean that it’s romantic.
The caption that caught us by surprise
“Last night at #hfpa party with @therealadewale @iamjamiefoxx and @jsauluck. I would like to point out that standing next to someone does not mean I am dating them,” Beckinsale wrote on Instagram alongside a pair of photos of herself posing with the men. “Currently in line at the dry cleaners and if that’s true I’ve got a hell of a problem,” she added.
Debut as a couple
The actors attended the event at Catch LA in Hollywood to celebrate the announcement that Pierce Brosnan’s sons, Dylan and Paris, will be the 2020 Golden Globe Ambassadors. Foxx’s daughter Corinne has previously held the title, which was formerly Miss or Mister Golden Globe honorees.
It goes way back
Foxx split from Katie Holmes in August after six years of dating, which was confirmed by multiple sources at the time. The couple were first linked in 2013 but were notoriously private about their relationship.
Their last public appearance together was at the Met Gala in May. Meanwhile, Beckinsale — whose divorce from ex-husband Len Wiseman was finalized earlier this month — dated Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson for four months earlier this year.
Moving on to better things
After displaying plenty of PDA throughout their brief romance, Beckinsale and Davison called it quits in April. “It was the long-distance,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “They’re still friendly, but it just didn’t work out.” A second source said, “They had been trying to make it work up until very recently, but it’s over now.”
