A sequel could be in store for actress Kate Beckinsale’s latest romance.
The 44-year-old star is “hanging out again” with Matt Rife, 22, who she has been seeing intermittently since at least the summer, Us Weekly reported, citing a source.
Rife, a host on MTV’s “Total Request Live,” and Beckinsale were linked together in June after photos emerged of them kissing in West Hollywood.
“When they’re together, it’s fine,” an insider told Us Weekly. “But she’s busy working and has a family. It’s been on and off.”

Beckinsale and Rife met through mutual friends, Entertainment Tonight reported in June, noting that those close to the actress support their relationship.
“He is very mature for his age and is a great guy,” a source told the outlet.

But their relationship had “fizzled out” following several dates roughly three months ago, according to an Us Weekly insider, until their recent reunion. Beckinsale and Rife were spotted kissing at a Los Angeles movie theater last week.
Beckinsale, who has an 18-year-old daughter with her ex Michael Sheen, finalized a divorce from her husband Len Wiseman in 2016, ending a 12 years of marriage.
