Kate Beckinsale has brilliant response when fan mistakes her for Sarah Silverman's mum

Kate Beckinsale showed off her sense of humour yet again when a fan mistakenly thought Sarah Silverman was her DAUGHTER.

Actress Kate posted a picture on Instagram of her out with some friends, including comedian Sarah, who is now dating Kate’s ex-husband Michael Sheen.

One fan clearly thought there was a similarity between the two ladies, and asked if Kate, 43, was 46-year-old Sarah’s mum.

“That sarah is your daughter? pretty like you@katebeckinsale,” said the follower.


But Kate clearly saw the funny side, quipping back: “Granddaughter. We are very proud of her.”
