Kate Beckinsale says she looks exactly like Ryan Reynolds

In her sitdown with Fallon, Beckinsale explained that her top celebrity lookalike is none other than Reynolds.

“I look exactly like Ryan Reynolds,” she said. “Like, in a shocking way. Like, when sometimes I see a bus going by with a poster on it, I think, ‘D*mn, I look hot. Oh, wait, that’s not me. Also, I’ve never done that movie.'”

Fallon held up a side-by-side photo of Beckinsale and Reynolds and said that he didn’t see the resemblance.

“I’ve wrestled with how, obviously, he’s not even like a sort of slightly-girly-boy-bander type,” she continued. “He’s like a big Canadian man and I really see myself in him.”

Why Kate Beckinsale and Ryan Reynolds can’t be in the same room

When asked if they’ve ever worked together, Beckinsale tells Fallon that they can’t be in the same room together.

“I can’t be in the same room as him,” she said. “Because one of us, I think, would explode, or something would happen. But I have had boyfriends in the same room with him while I was not there and they felt really compromised, like way too intimate. Like they were attracted to Ryan…they just feel like they know things about him, about his undercarriage, that they shouldn’t.”

Who is Kate Beckinsale dating?

Beckinsale is not romantically linked to anyone at the moment. She was tied to Pete Davidson earlier this year. Davidson himself recently split with actress Margaret Qualley after a brief relationship.
