Kate Beckinsale The 43-year-old actress is believed to have started a romance with the comedian - who is 22 years her junior - after they met through "mutual friends", though it is unclear as of yet exactly how long the pair have been seeing one another.
A source close to the 'Love & Friendship' actress - who has 18-year-old daughter Lily with her former partner Michael Sheen - said: "[Kate and Matt] met through a mutual friend. They quickly started flirting, went on their first date and it's continued since." And according to the insider, Kate's family and friends have already put the seal of approval on the 21-year-old hunk, as he's the "sweetest guy".
The film producer, 44, was previously married to a kindergarten teacher, but they got divorced shortly after he met Kate on the set of Underworld in 2003.
At the time, the actress was in a relationship with Michael Sheen, which subsequently ended during the movie production.
In April, six months after the 'Total Recall' director filed court papers to end his marriage to the 'Underworld' actress, Kate filed her own response, with just one difference.
While Len insisted the pair are not seeking spousal support from each other, Kate's filing stated that she is reserving the right to seek support from Len.
